Fork stop repair

Post by rjk40 » Wed Dec 21, 2016 5:40 pm

1975 Ducati 860GT:

One fork stop "pin" is bent from the one time I dropped the bike.

Question: any recommendations, short of welding to repair to a normal height, so the fork assembly no longer contacts the fuel tank?

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Heat it up, bend it back.
