I wouldnt use it. Cast aluminum doest like being bent. There could be cracks that might get worse.

I would just get another for peace of mind.

replace the rim...if you lean over on that right shoulder real hard and the tire blows out, or if it just gives period due to an unbalanced faulty rim, ummmm, I think you'd regret not getting a new one

It could probably be fixed and never have a problem. For an extra $50 or so you could get a new(to you) rear wheel that's never been damaged. If it were my bike I'd spend the little bit extra and find a used wheel.

No, spacing is different and the hub doesn't line up.
There was a cross-reference list on r6-forum.com I believe.

  1. Pickup a used wheel on ebay and get back to riding.
  2. Straighten your wheel at the cheapest possible price and put that on ebay to recoup the cost of your new used wheel.
  3. Hope somebody else didn't do #2 before you hit the buy button in step 1.
