Just fill it with water and freeze it (the pipe, not your arm :banana:). Might take a few tries, but it should work.

If you do freeze it keep an eye on it or else it will split the side open. I found out the hard way.LOL!

Freezing works but yes you will need to try several times so be patient.

If anyone is ever after an OEM header they are on fleaBay often and usually go very cheaply.

I saw the post up again and needed to add that the on line pipe repair place did a great job. Im now runnin a moose fiber guard and havent had a single dent or problem this hare scramble season. I did cook the resin from the guard warming the bike before a race. I would have to recomend the guard though, just not shiney anymore.
