Front fender ding

I had a stone bounce up and hit my front fender and put a nice little dent and scratch in it, looking to find the best route to take on fixing it. Thanks

Take your fender off and lay it with the paint down on a couple layers of cloth or a piece of leather and then tap the dent out using a piece of wood with no sharp edges. You should be able to get it out if it ain't creased too bad. Just take your time. If the scratch isn't too deep you should be able to polish it out after you tap the dent out.

I agree with the suggestion of a paintless dent repair guy. the pic indicates that would likely be a good solution

I do and I don't.

Painless dent isn't going to be able to repair the paint. Their work is generally for parts that have no paint damage (violation of the paint beyond wet sanding and buffing.)

If you turn it into your insurance, the fender's going to have to be repainted. They won't fix the dent and not the "chip". Not sure how much is going to come out of that, and not still be noticable.

That's some serious damage, as far as cosmetics.

If it were mine, I'd consider having it professionally repaired as the bike's a 2012, not a 2005 like mine.

I dropped my aux. light bar across my fender. Cost me $225.00 to have it fixed. Sorry for your luck.
