    Default Ouch...

    You got me on that one...brought a smile to my face.
    We have a trip this weekend and I just replaced it last night.
    Had a little more than a dent. More like 4 dents and a crease.
    Have fun and keep it on the rubber, unlike how I got in this mess...lol
    Cheers.

    Hi Doughboyracer,
    I thought you would like that.
    2 stroke guys and four stroke guys always have a brotherly bond.
    I have seen heaps of those titanium header pipes squashed. Most riders here go to a muffler shop and get a new one bent up out of stainless steel. Cheaper and seems to last longer.
    Stay safe mate and keep the back wheel spinning.
    We are off for a weekend of dirt bike riding, fishing and rock climbing.

    Default Back tire...

    The back tire pressure is what got me in the trouble that dented the pipe. Apparently the correct pressure gives WAAAAY more traction on packed dirt...lol
    Over the back before I knew what hit me, and yes it hit me...All good now though. Have a great time mate.

    I love Pipe Monday.
    Another pipe that needed lots of love and a little Map gas.

    The dents just pop right out making a the pipe useful again.

    That is awesome. I wish I would have thought outside the box like you have. I have always just purchased a new pipe for my bikes over the years after a big wreck. I got a new project now, and a pipe just waiting for a refresh. Thanks for posting the details and great idea!!

    Hi Doughboyracer,
    That is great mate so you got the air pressure correct in the tyres then?
    We had a great time too.
    They had us riding within a few metres of a 300 metre drop. Very dangerous but what a view and experience.
