Just slowly bend the shifter back to it's original position. That's all they would do if you brought it to a dealer's service department.Ok, thanks for the info so far. I guess I was just never paranoid enough to notice the tubes. The brown one hangs down pretty far too, should I push it back up or leave it?? Also is there anything else I should check out before I ride more?? The shifter caught some of the weight and bent in. Can still get my foot under it and shift fine but any suggestions to bend it back?? Or new one? Also any info on getting a new fender would be great.
