Iceing up the pipe

Recommended Posts

I read a post on two stroke about pouring water in your pipe and letting it frreez and expand and push the dents back in shape, and im just wondering can you only do this for the head pipe? :thumbsup::ride:

I imagine it will work to some degree on all metal. But the thinner the better as the expanding ice only has so much force. Regarding the head-pipe fix, it's unreal how well it works after the second freezing.

If you do a search in the general forum there was a big discussion on this and everone that tried it had good results.

I tried it on a kinked head pipe and didn't have very good results.

done both it works some don't recomend pluging both ends 60 psi air, heat with a soft flame dent and crease both worked there way out. probably do the water freeze method first especially if it's a titainum head pipr some don't recomend heating the titainum, like i said done both and both worked

Does a dented pipe noticeably reduce the bike's performance?

It depends on the size and location of the dent. Obviously, if the dent is very deep, exhaust flow will be affected. The closer the dent is to the exhaust port, the more it will also affect power. Most people won't notice a moderate sized dent in the pipe.
