Can you repair this?

Or send it back to the unfortunate seller who stuffed it in a box that was too small with no padding?

To get it straight enough to work is no problem but looks may not be the greatest.

You might get it expanded to fit, but it will never look good. If you can live with that, get some compensation from the seller for inadequate packing and packaging. If not, return it to seller on the sellers dime.

yes it can be fixed relatively easily, but it'd be going back to the turd who shipped it for a refund.

Piece of cake to fix it. 

Agree with the logic, I'd be going back to the seller for some cash back..

You can probably fix it with a muffler expander, but why should you unless 

the seller  refunds some of your money I would send it back .

The only reason I'd keep it is that everywhere has been sold out of new ones for a while and used ones are hard to find in good condition. (its a turbinecore for a 2002-2007 250). Otherwise I would have sent it back and still might unless he refunds me half the cost. I just can't believe someone could ship it like that.

I'd still get some money back and the seller learn a lesson.

Itll be out of sight. If the seller would give a good break id run it. Stick a socket inside and slowly roll the dent out. Use a bigger socket as it opens up.

That's inexcusable IMO and would bother me to no end.  I'm almost surprised the freight company agreed to accept it like that, unless it started out with another section of cardboard covering the exposed pipe, but even then...  Maybe that's easier to fix than it looks but if it doesn't return back to pretty much perfect seems you'll be fighting a leak, if that matters to you.  I'd send it back for a replace at the seller's expense, or refund and pursue another source.  Good luck - hope it works out.

Step #1 - If this was a use part there may not be any exchanging it to get a new one. If you got a decent deal try to haggle the damage to get a partial refund and then go to s

Step #2 - Does this part of the exhaust face in or out? You not going to get that looking perfect but if you don't give a rip what it looks like just get a piece of solid bar that pretty much fits in that hole, clamp bar stock in a vise and start tapping on it with a hammer until you get it worked out to your liking  😉

Just fix the f@#%ing thing and get on with it. Yeah, it's total bullshit that the seller didn't package it properly, one of my pet peeves and reason for giving a shitty rating when I'm able.  Consider this a Zen-Master test that will give you the keys to the afterlife. It may only cost you a case of beer to fix at the muffler shop if you can't do it yourself, but it's The Challenge that's the gift.  Don't cheat yourself!  This is the glory of living the motorcycle way.
