Bent F4 Radiator

So I carefully removed my Tamburini radiator to fit one of Joe's radiator brackets and to also install some samco hoses. I always give parts a good cleaning and inspection while I have them off and I recently discovered that my upper radiator is bent in at the right hand upper mounting bracket. This, in turn, does not allow the lower bracket hole to align with the lower hole on Joe's bracket. Has anyone else experienced this problem or might have any idea as to what caused this? I'm wondering if the radiator can be repaired or would I be better off just enlogating the hole on the stainless bracket. Thanks in advance.

Myler's could straighten that rad pretty inexpensively.... But elongating the hole would be the quickest and easiest thing to do.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

That's what you get with a 1400 mile bike, I guess. I didn't have to clean the radiator hardly at all. I'm finding little things wrong with the bike but nothing major thus far.
