Does anyone know if a damaged battery post can be repaired?

Is it just bent at the top and maybe part of the exposed post is torn or has the post been torn loose from the plates/bus inside the battery? If the latter, then it is game over for that battery. If the former, I think you can continue to use it. Just make sure to support the post with one tool while tightening the terminal screws.

That get dropped? You got lucky if all that happened was it got bent. Seen them look like that before but then be broke inside the case, is the post still solid or does it move at all?

The post is still solid and I have no charging issues. I'm running 2k watts rms pushing 16 speakers. I probably wore the terminal down from the constant connecting and disconnecting while installing my audio.

screw a 10 mm allen stud into the post then jb weld the hell out of it. Once the jb has dried then hook up cables and put a nut on the stud using the allen wrench to hold stud in place.

Or long as its a Drag Spec battery you might be able to get it warrantied. There pretty good about that

The battery from Batteries+ has two mounting threads per post - one on the top and one in front. I use the top for the cables and the fronts for accessories.
Sixteen speakers?!? You have a very different idea of what riding is about than I do. This should help you battery situation - put it in the top trunk...

From looking at the pictures it looks to be twisted to the right as in being (over) tightened. How did I do?

If it were me, I'd replace the battery as I wouldn't trust that compromised terminal. These bikes are voltage and battery terminal sensitive to begin with. So, for peace of mind, consider replacing it.
