I have bent the stock clutch lever on my 426 3 times, 2 of which were bad bends, and each time I have taken it off and bent it back. It hasn't broken yet. I have a new lever on hand and just use it for a pattern to get the bent one back to shape. Of course if it breaks while I'm trying to straighten it I have one to put on. Just letting you guys know that the stock levers are pretty damn good.
