For the 2-smokers:

$144 that's a lot of $$$

I think the rocky mountain aluminum one is under $20

2 stroke dent repair is easy just make sure you safety wire the cork @45 psi it will launch like a rocket!

Thank goodness for old threads!  I was trying to figure out how to fix my smashed and bent pipe...and then read this thread.  It appears that Steve Mathewson fixes these and now he works for a local place. SCORE.

Or Brenden!  He did mine after I smashed it flat.

That's a good idea too.

The impact from bending my pipe loosened the endcap from the silencer, and it later fell off.  But I found a new, takeoff silencer for my bike for $80 on eBay.  Considering that the end cap and parts alone was $68 on RM, and then I'd need to repack my 100 hr silencer, I was all over that.

Steve is my suspension guy and he does GREAT work.

Quig (the giant guy at Hogback) lives in Macedon and also does pipe repair.

Quig can handle the dents for sure ... the tweaking of the pipe may be another story.

Since I can't find anyone local with special plugs fir the KTM 2 into 1 header to blow some dents out, I tried the freeze trick. Last night wind chills were around -20 so I figured that was cold enough lol

Wow! Doesn't that risk busting the pipe though?

Ends aren't sealed. Only water at the elbow where the dents are. I woulda thought the ice would just expand in the pipe but it works
