Not had a drop on my bike but noticed the pivot bolt loose (wobble), went to nip it up and it stripped!! I drilled and tapped it and helicoiled it.
Been fine since.

I'll second the two comments above, I too had to put a helicoil in it.

I was able to get it pretty straight with a torch and some banging.

Looks like it might be weaker, so thinking about future replacement, but not a full rear-set.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a non-OEM set of brake and shifters? CNC aluminium?

I put woodcraft folding tips on both my pedals this winter. I removed the rubber, from the tips used the pressed section near the lever as a guide and sawed off the tip. I then drilled an appropriate sized hole in the remaining part of the tip that goes through the lever and bolted on the folding tips. The metal is soft and I sawed it with a hand saw, and drilling was straightforward. You'd need longer bolts than the woodcraft supplied bolts.

Of course I removed the levers to this, and put them in a vice.
