Does anyone know of a shop/individual who can Paintless Dent Repair a gas tank? The dent is about quarter-sized. I came across a few old threads on the matter, but they are all 3+ years old. Any help would be appreciated!

I may be incorrect, but I do not think it can be done due to thickness.

depends where the dent is located. I know a couple people that do this. Take a picture and send it to 281-830-0405 and I will ask if they are interested and if they think it will be accessible.

I have looked at the old threads as well and could never get a straight answer. Could you just let everyone know who these people are? Thanks.

how long ago was the dent made? metal has memory and if it has been too long it will simply pop back in after its been popped out, and if you've just dented it, you can likely pop it back out yourself if the time hasnt progressed too long (i did) and i didnt need any tools i used the wooden handle of a rubber mallet (it was a dent not a ding) and it worked out PRETTY well.

It happened a couple days ago. Not sure if I want to mess with it and make it worse than it already is. It's honestly not that bad but it bugs me just enough.

What about this tank?

Any suggestions? Can it be repaired or covered by a tank bag?

I'm a dent guy, it's all I do every day, the pic is not great but due to the paint damage I'm going to say it's not likely repairable. I work/ live in spring. If you are near come see me . 646-361-2562 my name is Lenny.

R&G racing.
These are actually required for Super Sport because of the way the Ninja tank grinds away.
Just put a bead of clear silicon on the inside of the shield and slap it on tight. near impossible to take off.
