Everything was square and the bend planes were parallel to the footpeg. It is an optical illusion if you are seeing something crooked (wide angle lens on my camera tends to distort things a bit). I consirered rebending the linkage but I would have had to bend it so much that it would have become too short. I did buy a length of 1/4 inch rod, and started googling around for new linkage ends that would fit, but that never saw the light of day. I sent the manufacturere a picture wondering if they sent me the wrong linkage and they said "we will bend you a new one if you send us dimensions". I offered to pay half and they said no way, sweet! It may have been a race part, and require a bit of tweaking, but this was 1.5 inches off, and that is not a tweak, that is a bad part.
