Today, we will be following up on the discussion we had a couple of days ago about motorcycle dent repair. We spoke earlier about the Motorcycle Tank Vice and the PDR for motorcycles, and today, we will be diving into the various tools that we here at Sioux Falls Dent Repair use to work on motorcycles.
All the tools showcased here are available on Ultra Dent Tools and as we mentioned in the previous video, if you are getting into motorcycle paintless dent repair, you should be buying all the tools and accessories. One of the biggest reasons for this is because motorcycle repair tools are actually a lot stronger than car repair tools.
One of the commonly used tools is the Soft Tip Wheel Lip which can be used practically anywhere on the motorcycle but is predominantly used to get out dents from around the gas lid/gas hole. The accessory that fits onto the wheel lip is also from Ultra Dent Tools and is called the adjustable T-Handle. It allows us to use the tool from any angle we need and get the dent out using as much or as little leverage as is required. There is also an extension rod that fits onto the end of the Soft Tip Wheel Lip and makes it longer so we can reach further and get to dents even better. All the Wheel Lips allow interchangeable tips so we can use different tips for different jobs without having to actually replace the tool entirely. Most of our interchangeable tips come from Edgy Tools and they work equally well on cars as well as motorcycles.
Going back to the point about buying all the tools available if you plan on getting into motorcycle dent repair, Ultra Dent Tools usually offers discounts during the holiday season and Black Friday where you can easily get about 10-15 percent off on their tools.

Motorcycle Paintless Dent Removal Tank Vise – MPDR
Today at the Sioux Falls Dent Repair HQ, we are going to be talking about a motorcycle tank vice and how we use it in the shop. The one that we use is from Ultra Dent Tools and is actually used for not only motorcycle tanks, but also for fenders and other panels as well.
With this specific model, there are other accessories that can be attached to make any type of repair work easier. While the first version only came with a single center post, the new version, called 2.0, now comes with a back post for better stability. However, the first version was designed for mobile repairs and could be attached to the back of a truck for repairs on the go.
Since motorcycles are more rarely used this time of the year, it will be the perfect opportunity for anyone looking to get some repair work done or even some modifications done to their bikes. The motorcycle vice makes it easier to hold the tank in place so we can work on it without having to worry about the handlebars getting in the way. Plus, the metal used on some of the bikes out there is a lot thicker than what is used on cars so we need all the leverage we can get when pulling out a dent from a motorcycle tank.
The vice itself is extremely adjustable and maneuverable so that we can work on a panel from different angles without complications. The version 2.0 also comes with a “tool bender” addition that allows us to use different types of tools such as a dent dial to get out all kinds of damage.
A Must Have
If you are thinking about getting into PDR or already are and are now looking at getting into motorcycle repairs as well, our advice would be to get all the tools needed because they will help you in the long run. There are a wide range of accessories that can be used when it comes to motorcycle repair and we will take a closer look at that sometime in the near future.

No matter how experienced a rider you are, chances are your bike is going to get damaged eventually. It happens to all of us. You can take every precaution imaginable:
Parking hundreds of feet from the nearest car
But regardless of what you try there are two things for certain: That dent is going to find you somewhere, somehow, and it’s going to cost you. So it’s worth knowing a Brandon motorcycle repair tech.
Paintless dent repair is the best way to fix minor body damage to your motorcycle, period. It’s fast, it provides great value, it won’t harm resale potential, and it works on virtually any dent that hasn’t harmed the paint. How? Through our advanced non-invasive processes and a whole lot of practice. At no point during our procedure do we alter the paint job of your motorcycle. Everything is done in a way that does not ruin your resale value or take any of the time consuming steps that body shops do. The bottom line is, if PDR is an option take it.
What Can’t MPDR Fix?
Motorcycle PDR is limited primarily by the depth and location of the dent, as well as the thickness of the tank. Generally speaking, large dents are easier to fix than smaller ones. If the dent looks like it was caused by something around the size of a soccer ball then it is most likely wide and shallow enough to be removed. Smaller dents, on the other hand, are much less predictable. Since the objects are more compact they cause deeper dents that result in stretching and tearing. In the worst scenarios the paint could crack making MPDR virtually impossible. If you aren’t sure if your dent can be repaired with PDR then schedule your free damage assessment with a Brandon motorcycle repair tech here!
How is MPDR Different?
When compared to standard PDR, motorcycles require a considerable amount of experience to compensate for factors like the difference in metal or the smaller, more compact parts. Because of this we usually opt to remove the parts before hand so we can better access the damage. Those who don’t remove parts, especially the tank, risk damaging other essential pieces. Normally, if you need a motorcycle repaired you should go with a specialist like our Brandon motorcycle repair experts.
If you are familiar with standard paintless dent repair then you most likely understand the basics of motorcycle PDR. It is a simple, yet highly specialized, process for removing dents and dings from the body of your bike without removing or damaging the paint. This process usually involves a variety of tools unique to paintless dent repair. Our trained Brandon MPDR technicians begin the process with a free quote.

What Makes Motorcycles Different?
MPDR requires the talents of a technician that is experienced with motorcycles. Why? Well, simply put, they aren’t the same as cars. Motorcycles have much smaller parts and tougher metal, meaning techs need to know the ins and outs of your ride. For example, many paintless dent repair experts try repairing tanks and fenders without isolating/removing the parts. Brandon MPDR experts know this restricts your access to the dent. Small details like this are what separate us from the regular dent pros.

Paintless dent repair is the closest you can get to a brand new factory look. This is easily the greatest advantage to MPDR. No priming, no filling, no paint matching, or shrinkage. Your dent is gone and that’s that. Our Brandon MPDR team always brings their ‘A’ game, delivering the highest quality results on time every time.
