I'm not positive of the alloy compound used in manufacturing sportbike rims but my experience with alloys is it can't be re-bent, once bent it will crack if forced to return.
I would tie a rope to it, throw it off your favorite boat and use it as an anchor - J/k
I have no idea what it's good for.

That's not what these guys say. Never know, but I've heard good things about this company.

Depending on what side of town you're on, either Sabs or A1 Wheel Straightening can fix it.
Typical cost is $75.00 - $125.00, you'll have to bring them the wheel less the tire on it.

SAB's on the SW side. Bissonnet and SW Fwy. They've done great work for me, and prices are very good too.

I have heard good things from the A1 people Patrick uses too

+1 Sabs set me straight

$115 i think for my front rim that was bent on the lip. For being in Alief, this will be your closest.
