You might give this a shot.

Take the flybar off and put one end in a drill chuck.
Now take a towel and wrap it around the flybar with enough material so your hand doesn't get burned (you'll be holding the towel). Now run the drill and apply enough pressure to bend the flybar (about a 20-40degree bend between the drill and the flybar.)
Run the towel up and down the flybar, but try to concentrate where the bend is.
This has worked in the past for myself unless you have a sharp kink in the flybar.

Cheers,
Jeff

What is causing the bend? Normal flight or something else? Not sure I've seen this but I have developed a small vib.

Danno, what kind of vibration did you noticed with the bend flybar?
