If you want to try it, most can be straightened with a box wrench that fits over the "ball" end and heating the area you want to straighten with a propane torch. I specifically say propane, as it doesn't have the energy to overheat it very easily, whereas an acetylene torch does. If you don't heat it, it will most likely break. Remove it from the bike so you don't heat something that shouldn't be heated. Actually though, replacement is still relatively cheap. Good luck.
