I need a new tank for my 1100. All I see for sale is tanks for 650s. Will they fit my bike?
It has worked with limited success. Issue is some of the welds on tank will split open sometimes. Also if you fill it up enough to do it, the gas cap is another weak spot. Another trick that works sometimes is dry ice, depending on how severe the dent is. Metal has a molecular memory. You place the dry ice on dent, the rapid temperature change excited the molecules, when it warms back up it will want to go back to original shape. I've seen it work on hail damaged vehicles with some success. The old fashion bondo method is still probably the best.This is off topic a little, but I've heard of tank dents being repaired by filling them with water and freezing it. The water expands when frozen and pushed the dent out in theory. Any truth to this? (anybody)?
