Is it possible?... is there a way?... a trick?... a hack to fix or to repair a dented Vulcan gas tank? Should I get it fix or just leave it there?... what do you think?
Do you have one on your gas tank too? Let me see it...show it too...

Some riders feel dents and other imperfections are badges of honor or just natural to have. I personally like my bikes to look unscathed. A small dent on tanks can be pushed out by the automotive dent removal specialist. Your damage is going to require body and paint work. Fender will have to be replaced. So it depends on how much it bothers you or not.

My KVS has a dent due to the wife having her first day meeting with a guard rail, she bought a band aid sticker to put over it and I applied some clear coat over the area the paint was damaged and exposed the metal. A lot of people say they had no idea it was dented and thought the sticker was just for humor or something haha.

I've decided that I'll just leave the dent as it is for now, and see if it will add character to the bike...haha

That's a very clever idea. I'll just put duct tape on mine....hahaha

Duct tape can be quite annoying to removed from painted metal especially if exposed to the elements such as high heat and sun or rain even. Might as well have fun with it so you can laugh at your mistake and not feel so bad about it but of course also learn from it!
