Hey guys is this dent worth getting a new pipe for? Don't think so but thought I would ask.

That is a velocity inducer, only found in One specific tree, typically only one tree on the mountain will provide that actual result Good find.Can be easily fixed if your concerned but will likely make no difference.

Ever seen a stock drag sled? They are all dented for tunning.

Easy fix there.

Don't worry about it. I've heard of dinged up pipes actually gaining power but i guess it all depends on how and where its dented as to what it will do.

Last year in January I smacked a tree on my '14 Summit, and it dented the pipe worse than that. I ran it the rest of the year and it ran fine.

I've heard of people filling there pipe with water and putting it in the freezer to pop a dent out. I've personally never tried it, so no idea if it actually works or not.

I built steel caps. One with a nipple in the middle to apply air pressure. Then glued 1/4 thick rubber to one side. Wire tied them down to the ends of the pipe. Put 40psi to the pipe and very very slowly headed the dent and it came out. Let the pressure off and let it cool. You have the smoothest repair. Frozen water can split the pipe. And once you build the caps. They can be used on alot of pipes. Mine works for my CR250 as well. Youtube it.
