Fixing a Pipe

Need help. I am searching for any info anyone has about getting a dent out of a brand new FMF pipe.

The pipe is from a 1999 cr250 and has literally one ride on it. But during that one ride I put a nice softball size ding in it.:-( A while back I stumbled across a web site for a pipe fixing company and can't find it again. Anyone know if it?

Secondly, I've heard that you can plug the ends, with something, and heat the ding with MAP gas until the pressure inside pops out the ding. Has anyone ever done this, and if so suggestions would be great?

For all those getting called up.

Keep the faith! and get home safe, for there are many miles yet to ride.

Re: Fixing a Pipe

how good are you with a torch and a mig?

it can be done yourself. drill a hole in the middle and put in a screw. heat the bejesus out of the pipe and pull on the screw to take out the dent. let it cool, then close screw hole with a mig or torch and rod

You wear your silver chain but the cross won't stop the lies,you believe in nothing

Re: Fixing a Pipe

THANKS CHUBBY AND YZROOSTINYA FOR THE PLUG. I APPRECIATE IT, LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED THIS SERVICE AND I'LL TAKE CARE OF YOU.

DKOLACK, I CHARGE $26.00 PER EXHAUST TO REPAIR DENTS, DINGS OR CRUSHED SYSTEMS. I OFFER LITTLE OR ZERO DISCOLORATION ON NICKEL/CHROME EXHAUST PIPES, MY COMPETITION CHARGES $40.00 FOR THE SAME SERVICE.

I DO NOT DRILL HOLES IN PIPES AS IT DESTROYS THE FINISH AND OVERALL LOOK OF THE SYSTEM. TURNAROUND ON YOUR EXHAUST WOULD BE WITHIN ONE DAY.
GO TO MY SITE VIA THE BANNER BELOW
