My right handlebar got bent. The throttle would stick. Some people would bend their handlebars back by using a long metal tube and use leverage to straighten it out. The problem is it weakens the metal. I decided to just get a new handlebar $90 off ebay. I still have the bent one and will re-temper it if I come across a torch.

Re-tempering involves torching it till it glows red then cooling it quickly in water. That hardens it but it is brittle. Then you put it in an oven and bake it. That will strengthen it. If I re-temper my handlebar I'll post something.
