Welding steering stop

So I was recently in a wreck that dented/bent the steering stop on the frame. So far I don't notice any other damage in that area, but I'm wondering:

Would it be safe to weld on a tiny strip of metal to bring the steering stop back to normal functionality? I just put the Coerce Low bars on, and I'm going to have a problem with clearance on that side if I don't do something.

I don't see why you wouldn't be able to. It's only stainless. Somebody else might have more info on why you souldn't, though. I'm no expert. Anybody know if this presents any danger to electronics.

Zeus said he JB welded a small allen wrench on the steering stop with good results. Refer to this thread: https://www.wristtwisters.com/forum/s...ghlight=coerce

after my get off - i had a buddy weld a little piece of steel back to where the old stop USED to be. it took some grinding to get it back to stop the bars at equal distance on both sides but works good, even now with the longer Pro-Tapers.
