This really sucks but someone opened their car door into the right side of my new Ninja 650. The dent did not crack the paint, just pushed a 4 inch small impression into the fairing. You can see a line where the edge of a car door would have been. To those who have had this happen is there a way have this repaired without a new piece? It is plastic so would a repair shop be able to warm the inside and flatten it back out?

ya, nothing much you can do about a dent but push it out with your hand or get new plastics. Repair, if possible, would cost more than you want to pay to repair a new dent and probabaly look worse.

The dent won't push out by hand, so i doubt there is much that can be done . The side fairing i am sure runs in the couple hundred dollar range.

If its a plastic fairing a hair dryer or heat gun should work while trying to wiggle it out a bit. You can always try pushing really hard to make it reform in the opposite direction but that rarely turns out perfect.
