Most owners don't bend them. I suppose it must fall within their expected warranty failure rate.
I ended up doing away with the Indy kit and going to the alloy brace job. Rally Moto or whatever it's called.
Then I employed the Schrodinger cat theory. It is both bent and straight until I take the seat off and find that it is, in fact, bent.
Then I will shrug, and utter my favourite expression "it is what it is".
Such is life.
