Put a sticker over it and forget about it... First of many... 125 bikes sacrificial machines whose sole purpose it to teach you to ride and be dropped in the process.
its a cb600 not a drop and go

 

Whoops! missed that bit... thought it was the bike in the ops avatar :oops:

I saw a youtube vid recently where a guy used a hot air paint stripper gun to heat the area where there was a dent.....then, when it was fairly warm, he sprayed some of that freezer spray onto the area......and the dent popped out...... 8-)

That needs to be progressed carefully on a fuel tank :shock:


Or you could try dropping a lit match in and slamming the flap shut quickly... :popcorn:

I wasn't joking by the way...

Someone embed it please?

 

I got bored and missed the bit explaining why peanut butter was being used :lol:

 

Ok as you can see in the photos from a distance you can hardly make out the damage. But close up inspection shows you the two points of contact the bike had with the ground. :(


I think if you click on the photo it enlarges it.


Moo feels sad for you and your shiney new bike misfortune :crybaby: :crybaby: :crybaby: hope you get it sorted soon

:stupid:


It's gone through the paint so even pulling the dent out will leave it still looking shabby.


A body shop can sort that out in no time though! An ex reversed into a pillar damaging the rear corner of the back bumper.

Guy came out, pulled the dent out, resprayed it all for £150. Not bad really considering he came to me :thumb:
