Has anyone had this happen yet? The headpipes are a thicker metal than standard 2-stroke pipes - so I am not sure that standard pipe repair will work. Mine is a Procircuit T4 system. Last race, lots of rocks - one of which that put a nice size ding right in the curved section several inches from the Cylinder. Is it possible to repair? or just deal with it or replace??? Thanks for the help.

do a search for a thread titled "fixing a bent header". It may have the info you're looking for.

Yeah I know how you feel (I creased mine BIG time)!! Here is the direct link to the page to fix your header http://mx393.tripod.com/header.html If you have any questions let me know. The process was easy...you just have to find someone who has a oxyacetylene torch that you can use!
