Shift Pedal Bent Out of Shape

My bike was recently laid down on its left side, and the shift pedal is now bent inwards towards the bike. I was wondering if anyone had a good idea as to how I can straighten the pedal back to its original position... The pedal is just in too far for my comfort.

I already tried pulling it out with a pair of pliers, but it just won't budge. Any ideas? Thanks. (pic is included)

Take it off and use a torch and hammer in a vice.

That's cast metal, right? You may have a risk of breaking it when you try to bend it back. Since so many people go to aftermarket rear sets, you can probably find a new shifter lever dirt cheap.

Gentle with it; you don't want to soften the metal but bending it alot nor back and forth to get it right. In a vise you should be able to bend it by hand; or put the vise on the shift rubber side and slide a small tube over the link side for leverage.

Much appreciated, Patrick. The problem is, I'm still a beginner, so I'd hate having to ride my bike all the way to your location (I live in Cinco Ranch). Also, I have no equipment to load the bike on my truck.

But man, I'd really love to check out the place some time. I go to church in that area on Sundays, but it's closed then.

try puting a piece of pipe over the toe end and use it like a pry bar to bend it back to original position.

Yep that's what I did. I figure that I had and even chance of breaking it, so be prepared for that. be gentle.

Used that method on our old F2 and it worked like a champ! Just bend it slow and easy.

Yeah, what they all said - but I'd get another aftermarket from bikebandit or somewhere also.
