I have a pretty good sized chest freezer if you need it

Don't fill it all the way up - leave some room for expansion above the dent. DAMHIK.

Big mess

Probably a good idea for me to explain how to do the freezer fix. You will need a chest freezer that the pipe can be set up in so the dent is at the lowest point. Remove the header pipe from the bike and pour water in it so the water is a few inches either side of the dent but not within a few inches of the open ends. Put the pipe in the freezer so it's supported in that position and leave it overnight. Then simply take the pipe out and leave it to thaw. You might have to repeat the exercise if the dent has "sharp" edges and you may not get it completely out but it does make a large difference.

The idea is the "open ends" of the water column freeze first and then the rest. The frozen ends form a "plug" of ice. The water freezing inside the pipe between the ice end plugs will force the dent out.

Good luck. "All care and no responsibility" from me, so don't be trying to claim a new header if don't work . That's called "bad luck" and you probably just wanted an excuse to buy a new header anyway .

Man that's nice firstworks. Is that the 13L tank? If a guy wanted a 200 mile range out of a 530, would the 21.5 acerbis do it, or would you have to go to the 6.3 gallon?

Typically 120-130mm is a safe starting point.

Hello

Is it possible to raise the bars in conjunction with the scotts damper under the bar.

Yup!



What you are looking at is the underbar mount from Scotts (black piece) + the Rally Riser



That submount part is not listed on their online site for sale, but the do sell it, the part number is # 310110

If it was not pissing rain outside I'd go out and take some better pictures of the set up.

I gotta say, the ergonomics are perfect, that Rally Riser is the 125 model which is a 1" rise with forward offset plus the Scotts submount piece another 1". I'm 6' tall, with arms longer than they should be and I have absolutely no complaints now with riding position.

I gotta couple more pic's but they are not the best and I don't want to take away from this thread...
