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.

You can drill a hole in the tank but you have
to be super careful. You will still have
to fill and sand it anyway you will just
use less filler. I would use something
called Mar Glass or a similiar product.
Best way to go about it bro, go to an auto
body supply store and show it to one of
the counter guys, usually they are X painters
and are very very helpful. Plus if there is
anything new on the market they will let you
know.

Good luck
Chris

Definitley take it to auto body supply.

I would suggest NOT drilling a hole. That is an outdated method for fixing most (not all) dents. There are several very good kits on the market that most decent body shops will have that use an adhesive to glue a disc to the dent and then a puller fits onto the disc to use as a slide hammer. I have used this myself with good results ofcourse it's still going to need some filling and sanding.
