Would this damage the engine?



Would this damage the engine in any way? It looks so sad...

My thoughts are its harmless...and I don't really care to fix it if it isn't necessary.

You could just use a crescent wrench and bend it back out. It will look a little ugly but it'll work.

Mine has looked like worse than that for well over a year with no issues. (Unless somehow that crushed eqhaust led to my broken axle.... )

nope won't hurt anything, its not mashed that bad
I'd still take a crescent wrench or a pair of channel locks and open it back up somewhat at some point but thats not that bad.

I mashed mine pretty much shut on my first obstacle on my first trip to the old Katemcy Rocks. Used a leatherman to open it back up some and kept on wheeling.
I think I finally fixed it the rest of the way a few months later.

Yup. Smashed my Gibson exhaust tip at Rubicon. Cut it off when I got home. Looks better now anyway.
