Does anyone have any experience removing small dents without drilling? I have a very small dent on top of my gas tank from an unfortunate low-side. My bike slid off the road and landed upside down in a 10 ft. deep drain hole in Decker Canyon. Black asphalt gravel mid corner. Did I mention it is a 2006 GSX-R1000? Anyway, I've totally rebuilt the front end (forks, lower triple tree, steering damper, fair stay, headlamp and wiring assembly, windscreen, right lower and mid fairing, upper fairing, right rear cowling, rear-sets, levers, fender, etc...). I would like to get rid of that pesky little dent also.

Jarrod....sorry to hear about your off bro. If there's ANYTHING I can do to help.....call me.

I had a small dent in a tricky spot on my 03 Silverado. I called Dent Pros, and he got deep up inside the fender with all manner of tricky tools and spoons and such, and viola......40 minutes later........Bobs your uncle.

Don't have his digits, but they're in the phone book. Good, fast, reliable. YMMV, FWIW, IMHO, Etc.

Yeah, I was having a great time until that little off. Julian, Roger, Carl, and Mike D. were all there. Mike D. and Roger hung out with me for 2 hours while Julian and Carl went to get Carl's truck. Shit happens. I hadn't wrecked since 2001, and that was at the track. I guess it was my turn. Conditions were not very good that day. It had rained the day before leaving lots of debris on the road. There were even some wet spots. Oh well. She'll be back, not quite as pretty, but just as fast. Now I need some rear-sets and other goodies.

He forgot to mention that it was on the first day of a (what should have been) a wicked weekend. I saw the whole thing in slow motion (I was about 20 ft behind him going into a slow right hander) It's quite ironic that we were tearing ass up Decker Canyon and where he crashed we had just pased a residential area and we were going slow. No-ones fault, just black loose asphalt is harder to see than sand. The damage would have been minor IF the bike hadn't slid into the 10ft drainage ditch. I'm just glad the only that was hurt was Jarrod's wallet and that Julz, Mike D, Roger and myself were there to carry (yes carry ) his bike out of the ditch.

Let's not forget the great advice given to us by a passer bye/instructor: "when you can not see around the corner, slow down". what a dick.
