Dents In Muffler: Repair?
« on: November 17, 2018, 11:00:05 AM »
Hi Everyone.  I just had my 2016 DCT delivered.  Love it more than I thought I would!  I did buy the bike used.  The bike came with a few dents in the muffler itself.  I would like them repaired.  My first thought is to go to a paint-less dent repair company here in town.  I am wondering if anyone has successfully repaired dents in their mufflers on their own.  If so, how did you do it?  Thank you very much!  Mike

I'd put a different end can on it.

Not mud paintless repair on a can/muffler but have done on a fuel tank. I’d say it’s worth a go.

Hi Bill.  I am seeing prices for OEM at around 850 USD.  I've been searching for used without success.  Any suggestions for a cost-effective source?  Been googling like mad!  Thanks Bill.

Yup.  These guys do really good work, in general.  I've sent an email to the company that is pretty well reviewed.  I'll let everyone know how it turns out.

Hi mzflorida. I was thinking more of another manufacturer like Dekelvic (good value and sound). Whether you can get them over there I'm not sure but you must have something similar.

Delkevic is available in the US.  I purchased their full system, minus cat and 8"round carbon fiber can.  Had all pipes and fittings ceramic coated.  Waiting for Santa to install

Once you fix it consider this or something similar, this one is from R&G
