Bent Main Shaft on CR

Sep 11, 2007
Noticed an awful pulsating when I angaged the clutch on a used CR125 I bought. I took the case cover off and noticed a gyration in the basket when I spun the inner hub. My first thought was either the inner hub or the basket...or the plates. Replaced all and problem still there. Split the cases and looked at the main shaft...ran a rod through the center of the shaft and it bound. The mains haft has a slight bend in it. How could someone bend this???
