Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) on a Motorcycle

Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) on a Motorcycle

Not only are dings or dents on your favorite motorcycle a matter of acute frustration, but they can also shockingly reduce its market value. It can be pretty expensive to fix motorcycle dents and let’s not forget how dangerous it can be to ride around with it. 


That is where our ‘Paintless Dent Repair’ or PDR, in short, comes into play. Read on to know what PDR is and how it can help you to get rid of that horrid crater from your motorcycle. 


A Look into the World of Motorcycle Paintless Dent Repair (MPDR)

Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is a technique to remove minor dings and dents present on a motorcycle without ruining the bike’s original factory paint. The dent fixing process through PDR requires a lot of patience, while our expert technician massages all dings and dents out from the inside of the tank, or from the underside of the fender. Highly specialized tools that are particularly made for this task are used during the dent removal process.


Dent Removal Process Through Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) 

An expert PDR technician will use specialized tools to vigilantly press the dent back into its original position without the need to use any kind fillers or paint. This allows your motorcycle to remain in its original factory condition, and it will look as if the ding never even happened. 

PDR is not only a quick process but also lasts longer and is more durable than other traditional motorcycle ding repair methods.


Benefits of Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) 



The PDR method does not use any fillers, primers, grinding, or Bondo as the original paint of the motorcycle is not disturbed. Thus, PDR is the best solution that offers optimal quality while removing dings and dents from your favourite motorcycle.



Another significant advantage of PDR is its value. A typical paint repair of a minor motorcycle ding might cost $500-$1200 or even more if it has custom paint. The same dent can be fixed through the PDR method much faster and often times more cost effective.


Time Efficient: 

Apart from improved quality and cost-efficiency, the PDR method also takes up less time to repair dings and dents. As a result, you won’t have to spend a lot of time away from your bike.

Motorcycle Dent Removal

Motorcycle Dent Removal

This is a repair we did on a Yamaha motorcycle. Traditionally in motorcycle dent removal the motorcycle gas tank sits on top of the motorcycle. The rider then has the gas tank between their legs. On this Yamaha model however,that is not the case. The gas tank actually rests under the seat on this bike. Where the tank would traditionally sit between the riders legs is actually just a metal cover that resembles a smaller gas tank but this is actually just covering the frame of the bike as well as the top of the engine assembly.

First thing we do in motorcycle dent removal is mount this engine cover to our motorcycle vice stand. This gives us a solid platform to mount the cover to so it will not move during the repair process. There is a lot of pressure and force that needs to be applied in order to push damage out of any item that has a dent in it and motorcycles are no exception. Once the cover is mounted we use all sorts of specialized tools some are even specifically made to work on motorcycles. Some of the biggest differences in a motorcycle specific tool and a traditional tool is the strength. While all dent removal tools are strong, motorcycles are extremely strong compared to a cars sheet metal. So the motorcycle specific tools are much more stout this allows us the apply force to the damaged areas and push them out and not have the tool bend in the process.  A tool that bends means there is a waste of energy being applied  to the repair and not all of the force from the technician is being applied to the repair making it more difficult resulting in a longer repair time as well creating more work for the technician.

In the end we use a combination of tools to get this damage out and make this engine cover dent free once again. The bike owner was thrilled with the results and happy to have a dent free motorcycle. He was especially happy since he was able to ride the bike to our shop, remove the cover and take off to work. Then later show up to pick it up and simply snap it back on the bike and go down the road once again.

Well we sure do, today we are working on a 2017 Harley Davidson Street Glide Screaming Eagle CVO. This customer purchased this motorcycle that was previously wrecked, he know choosing Paintless Dent Repair he would be able to save himself from purchasing a new gas tank.

We start out by mounting this motorcycle tank to our motorcycle tank vise. This is bolted into the ground and designed to mount this tank and fenders rock solid so there is no flex and movement when pushing damage out. We then use a leverage plate to have something to leverage off of in order to push these dents out. This leverage plate is mounting where the fuel injection assembly sits. We also have a specialty set of tools specifically for motorcycles to fix this damage.

When pushing damage out in motorcycles we have to heat the area we are working anywhere from 160 to 190 degrees at all time while pushing this damage out. This allows the paint to be more flexible and allows us to push this damage out without cracking or breaking the paint. Motorcycle tanks, especially Harley Davidson’s are much harder to repair than any other motorcycles and vehicles because they are much thicker and stronger.

Bikes Are a Little Bit Tricky

You might be asking yourself, “Why do I need a technician specifically for my motorcycle? Dents are just dents right?” While not entirely wrong, there are several key differences that set motorcycle techs and normal PDR experts apart. It mostly comes down to what they have the most experience in. A car tech, for instance, has extensive knowledge of many different makes and models; when a car they have never worked on before comes around, they usually have no problem spotting patterns and similarities.

As for motorcycle techs, they need the knowledge to disassemble parts of the motorcycle and put it back together. Many of the parts on bikes are tightly packed and very small. This causes issues when trying to repair hard to reach areas, like certain spots on the fender. To overcome this, MPDR experts isolate the damaged parts and repair them individually, leaving you with a smooth, pristine, factory fresh finish.

Why Paintless Dent Repair?

Paintless dent repair is the premier method for removing all minor body damage on cars and motorcycles.  Our technicians have dedicated years of practice to perfecting the craft of paintless dent repair. However, there is no way to learn everything PDR is capable of. It is an ever-evolving industry that continues to grow and improve.

To start with, the standard PDR job can take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours, while hail damage usually takes a couple of days. This is nearly three times faster than competing body shops! Next, most paintless dent repair processes are very simple, and require no more than hand tools and the skills of a talented tech. This allows us to bring you the lowest repair rates in Sioux Falls. Finally, quality is the most important benefit of PDR. This is the closest you will ever get to never having the dent in the first place.

Can You Fix Every Dent?

90% of all minor body damage can be fixed using paintless dent repair. Here at Sioux Falls Dent Repair we fix cars and motorcycles, both modern and classic. However, what we are able to fix is limited by the size and location of the damage.

  • If the dent is too close to the edge of a panel, then the metal may be too tough to reshape.
  • If the dent is too sharp, then the metal may be stretched to far as it is.
  • And, if the paint is cracked or chipped, we can’t repair it because there are far too many quality problems.

This is rarely an issue with motorcycle fender repair. The paint is very malleable, and the material is easy to work with. If you need a Brandon motorcycle fender repair team, call us today at 605-595-4061, so we can start you off with a free damage assessment!
