Yup, they can get some pretty crazy dents out. They may even have a tool they can use to reach in the tank and press the dent out from the inside.

I like the dry ice idea, sounds like a great drunken science experiment. I will post up a pic tomorrow and we can go from there. This is off a TW200, so I'm pretty sure its not double walled, but I will look. Thanks for the input guys.

Have heard about doing this on 2 stroke MX bikes that have dents, but I've also heard of some stories of the pipe splitting when doing it.

some of the metric tanks definately are huge and have 2 layers, I am working on an old harley tank here today, its got some damage and when I am done media blasting, I will take pictures of the steps to do the dry ice dent removal, maybe do a tech article for posting.
