There is a post in this forum, I think last week where a guy took it off filled it with water about 3" each side of the dent, left it uncapped on each end, positioned it in his freezer so the water would not spill out and let it freeze and apparently it worked awesome. :banghead:

He said he had to do it for three freezing cycles until it was completely out but it worked great!

Look at the posts from last week :banghead: Apparently the ice forms from the ends first so you don't have to cap it :lol:

Tell us how it worked :lol:

I always fixed two stroke (steel pipes) by capping and putting 10-20 psi ( more or less) in the pipe, and heating the dent with a torch. This is fairly scary to do unless you have a co2 bottle to pressure it. I don't know how titanium would react though.

The freezing trick has been posted a few times in the last couple of months with excellent reviews. I have never tried it though.
