Once upon a time we used to pop them out with compressed air. Be sure to close the fuel valve and empty the tank if you try this. Likewise air out the fumes and don't smoke.
Or
Fill it with Bondo. Don't drill holes to try to pull out the dent, then you have holes in the tank.

I Have A Dent On The Fuel Tank ,Suggest Me How i Can Remove Such Dent in Mumbai's which Service Center. Also My Engine's Paint is Peeling Off.


Hi
Insert a new or deflated inner tube inside the tank behind the dent & inflate. This will not work if there is a crease
If creased its easiest to fill & repaint it
Suction cups can pull out shallow dents
Otherwise braise a rod onto deepest part of dent & pull, cut off rod, smooth & repaint

Engine paint can be removed by painting Nitromores or similar stripper on then scrape of & be sure to rinse well
Bead-blasting is the best way but you have to remove the engine

I cant recommend a service centre in Mumbai as I haven't been there for years, I live in London UK

Don't even try to fix the bike. Getting parts will be a problem and doing the actual repairs would be a big hassle for you. Just take it to a dealer or two and see what bike you can get on a trade-in. I suggest a 250cc to 450cc four stroke with not more than two cylinders. Get a used one that is only 3 to 4 years old. Be sure the dealer has gone through the bike and it is mechanically sound.

PETROL TANK DENT


never heard of this. chances are you will find a weak spot in the tank and blow through it. To me this sounds like a very dangerous endeavor.
