Performance pipe rubbing

I put a new pipe on my Tomos a3 last year and it stops the stand from folding up completely. Would I damage it ,if I warmed it up and dent it on the inside to let the stand clear?

Overpriced Parts /

Why would you do that all that

All you Gotta do is enlarge the header mounting/holes just a little bit and you’ll be surprised how much clearance you will get on the back/back mount area

Re: Performance pipe rubbing

Dont dent your pipe. The chamber is made for resonance and that is affected by dents. You might try taking a torch to the header bend and warm it up and try bending it up a bit. It might throw off your rear mount a bit, but you can just make a bracket or drill a different hole for that. Not sure without a picture how much clearance you have to bend, or how low your kickstand site.

Personally I would remove the center stand and get a side stand for the bike. Tomos doesnt need a stand for starting anyway. (edited)
