Default Stock XR linkage is Bent

This ever happen to anyone else? I rebent it, but it still seems weak. anyway, ordered the KewlMetal "victory flowjetted linkage Bar". Hope this trick looking part gives me some added strength. Any thoughts from the members?

I'm having trouble picturing enough force to bend the shifter rod. Seems like it would have broken one of the ends first.

Any idea when and how this happened?

dont know how it happened....but all at once the shifter peg got real low....my foot could not get under it to shift and i noticed the shifter lincage rod was bowed. took it off and bent it back. all this and under 500 miles. I must of gotten a weak link....no pun intended. Hope this waterjetted billet rod is better.
