  • Anyone recomend a Tank Dent remover north of river please

    Hi ladies and Gents

    I have some monumental tank slapper dents I have discovered in a "good tank" I bought.

    I think it would be worth taking to a place (panel shop ) that has one of those " rod welded dent puller doovers".

    Then I could begin the da Vinci bog/plastering job.

    Its a hens teeth tank so I have no alternative other than fix it. And having the dents relieved a bit would save a bit of bog.

    Kind regards always

          Being serious here. Fill tank with water and put in freezer as the water freezes it expands and will push the dent out. May take a few attempts if it's a big dent.
          Make sure u plug any holes tight tho so water doesn't just freeze and expand out a hole.

            nice way to turn an lc tank into a 750/4 tank I spose. Yerrr, Narr I think I will stick with my original plan, but thanks for the suggestion, I bet it would work treat on a non profiled tank, but the LC has inverted sides that would not look good popped out.

                ^^ Potato is your man
                If you love your motorcycle, set it free. If it comes back, you probably high-sided.

                  as dodgy as it sounds it does work, its a pretty common way of fixing 2t dirt bike expansion chambers after an accident.

                    If you don't mind doing a little bit of paint touch up, most collision places have a machine thats like a spot welder that goes in the middle of the dent, and then it has another arm you attach somewhere else on the repair to lever up on the dent.

                      bit old technology shoom.

                      these are the new ones,this is a small mobile spot welder,if you look at the handle you will see the slide hammer and at the very tip a triangle of what looks like copper,that gets tacked on to the dent,bzzt,tack,use the slide hammer to pull the dent,twist it to break the spot weld and go again.

                      not a cheap toy but a quicker more efficient method.

                          No doubt it may...

                          But imagine that a $1.50 can of coke is your $$$$ unobtanium petrol tank - with the concave section at the bottom of the can representing the exquisitely formed knee indentations of a petrol tank.

                          What happens to the bottom of that can / your tank when you freeze it...?

                            i am aware of this, when i mentioned it i didnt think about concave sections of the tank. But take your coke can with a small dent in the side and the dent is gonna come out before the concave base expands.
