Hi all, had a rough day yesterday and ended up bending my FMF pipe, to the point that the tire rubs on the inside of the pipe when i compress the suspension. I need some advice on bending it back. I could just reef on it to pull it out, but im worried about it cracking at the welds. I was thinking maybe using a propane torch to heat it up and then bend it. Thoughts? Oh, and bent my radiator and bruised the hell out of my hip and shoulder....thank god for helmets and chest protectors.
did you bend the pipe or did you bend the exhaust cannister. Maybe its just the mount.
I bent my exhaust can and did a real ugly job of banging it back into shape. Its a good thing it hides behind the fender.
If its just he pipe/tubing, then take the bike to your local muffler shop. They will fix it for you for about $40 bucks. This would be real simple for them.
Propane would not be nearly hot enough to bend that pipe.

Carefully applied heat from a welding torch combined with a medium amount of force should do the trick. Take your time move the heat around because that is where the bending will happen. don't try and force it all in one place and you should be fine.
