Absolutely, but I doubt if your butt dyno will be sensitive enough to detect the change, it is mostly appearance.

 

I've had header dents removed by a snowmobile shop, they use heat and internal pressure to "pop" out the dents.

never min i put more water last night and guest waht ... it worked |!!

i hope i never have to fix a dent in my header, but i have to admit it would be cool to see it get fixed with the water in the freezer

Going forward, I wouldn't worry one bit about a small dent. Ours is dented...and if you ride in technical terrain, your's likely will be again. A big dent that significantly restricts the flow of exhaust is an entirely different matter.
