Is there a process or can a bike shop fix a dent in The gas tank of a '99 CBR F4? The dent is a good size about 2" wide and 1" deep. I seem to remember reading a solution for this somewhere. I hope its not too expensive.

I don't think you can drill a hole and pull the dent out, I could be wrong. Sand,Bondo,sand...repeat as many times as you like; then, sand, primer, sand...repeat.
