Tank Dent

Hey everyone,I bought a 2012 r6 with a tank dent. I want to cover the damage with r&g tank sliders. Before spending the $100, I want to make sure they will fit. Can anyone verify for me?

Re: Tank Dent

I do not think they will. Maybe close, but I don't think so. You could try to pop the dent out some first.

I'm going to ask the local shop how much Itd be. These traxxxion sliders look like they will work. But the r&g look way better

If you have access to a welder it is pretty easy to pull. Weld a bolt onto the tank and borrow a slide hammer from Autozone. Make sure the tank is clean and dry first. Lol.

About how much do you think this would cost?

To have it done? At least $100-200 depending on shop rates. They are going to charge an hour minimum.
