That dent can be pulled out almost completely straight by a good body shop without needing a repaint. I have done them myself using various methods. My two choices are the hot glue dent puller and pressurizing the tank and using hot and cold cycles to pop the dent out.

There is no video for the other method I use where I pressurize a fuel tank and use hot and cold water to pop the dents out.

I have showed the dent to every place, all say nothing can be done. The dent is with an angle(curve?) and strongly deformed...
I fell upside down... So the tree hit the part with the line that is suppose to be for strenght.

Please send as message more about your method :)

Sorry to hear that Margit - take a look at Babbitts Partshouse, a new tank for a 2017 model is only $317.93, and they come painted, ready to fit.

Have been looking for months, no luck...

USA doesn't sell to EU, some regulation that they can only sell to a bike that was bought in US.

So still looking for a used fuel tank in EU zone.
Price plus shipping should be ca 300 EUR :)

I've never heard of such regulations, and most of the time I order parts from Partzilla in the US. Be aware though that color schemes can differ in regions, and such higher priced items might have high customs charges arriving feom outside EU.
I PMd you on an alternative source from Thailand direct.
