well, today I was stripping the frame for powdercoating (havent done steering stem yet) and I noticed this dent in the frame next to the kickstand. about the size of a quarter, and deep enough to fit my thumb. Ive never dealt with anything like this before... I checked stripped frames on ebay for the same dent (as the shifter shaft is right there thinking it may have come like that) but its unique to mine. what is the procedure for something like this? I mean does it sacrifice structural integrity enough to require repair, and if so is it just finding someone to cut and weld in a new section? Im not jumping/stunting the thing lol, Ive seen dirt bikes with engine cradle tube dents, but this is a bit different. my main concern is that this is a long section and there is a crease on either side, so I hit a bump and it bends like a banana. everything looks straight right now.
