lol.. yeah... The stock cranks are notorious for being malleable. Some people have complained that they bend easily. You won't do that with solid aluminum castings, they'll weaken, crack, and break. I'm not sure what kind of steel they use, but it will bend back into shape several times before twisting or breaking.

Yep, I learned about bending cast aluminum about 30 years ago shortly after I got my first motorcycle. :lol:

In this case, the crap metal isn't a fault, it's a feature. ;)
