Bent plastics

So this may seem to be a stupid question to some of you but I've been trying to figure out if there is a way to bend plastics back.. my girlfriends ex took her 2012 foreman 500 and him and a buddy of his brought back an old rail tie a few years ago and I noticed when I was looking over the machine that the front plastics are kinda bent out of place, told her I would see what I can do to fix it since we have been putting extra on it to pay it off, is there a way to bend them back so the for a little better or a trick, don't really wanna just yarn on them and have them break or something cause that would be my luck any tips would be appreciated

I'd first check the mounts under the plastics first. Once you remove the plastics from the frame, they are quite flexible. If in fact it is the plastics, you can use a heat gun verry carefully, in my best( Elmer Fudd) voice. A bit too much heat, you'll have a mess. Lets hope he didn't bend the frame.

I really hope not since he ruined her sportsman 800 she had and that's why she ended up with this one and she's barely rode the damn thing she's only used it twice this year but hoping if I can straighten everything out and get two new tires on the front for it that she will actually use it but thanks for the advice

Without a pic it's hard to give good advice. I agree most likely it's the metal supporting the plastic that is bent. Bend it back and go.
