i would think you can do this but why? you can get replacement pedals for pretty cheap. whats more if you wanted to change the pedals later it would be a problem, or what if you bend the pedal arm. i think it would be in your best intrest to just buy a new pedal or set of pedals. if you watch ebay you can get a set of primo tenderizers for like $15. stock pedals can be found for even cheaper. good luck with whatever you do to fix the problem.
