Default Can't find center shaft replacement part!?

Hello, this is my first time posting on this forum and I'm having a little bit of a problem. A couple months ago I bought a used DFP-9315 Yamaha "Flying Dragon", however the shaft connecting to the connector rod on the right pedal is a little bent, creating horrible lag on the left pedal. I was wondering if there was any way that this part could be replaced, though I have searched around a ton and it doesn't look like it.
Thanks anyway!

Thanks but I guess I explained it wrong. That part of the pedal is fine, what is bent is the little rod sticking out of the cam that connects to the connector rod. I don't know if it's even possible to replace without buying an entirely new pedal but it's worth a shot to ask.

Also, I contacted Yamaha already and I'm waiting for a reply, thanks :).

I probably read it wrong, my psychic interpretation was off, my bad.

You mean the red highlite in the pic below?

The main shaft> its bent?

If the main shaft is bent, the pedal was probably dropped. I don't believe YAMAHA sells main shaft replacements. You could take the pedal to a machine shop, they could disassemble it and straighten.

I myself would stick the bent end in a vice and try to straighten it by pulling on the exposed section of the main shaft on the other side, not pull on the frame.

Yes thank you, that is the bent part. I guess I'll try to straighten it out myself since the lag is already horrible anyway, thanks for the help!
