Default Dented pipe still good?

Having drama with my Hyper 21 for over a month now and removed it to find an elongated dent in the bottom of the pipe.

It's not very deep at all. Just runs along the bottom where the rib on the stone guard has been hitting it.

Would this kind of dent cause any tuning issues?

I tried to get the best pics I could of it but it might still not be clear enough:

Ohh that is ABSOLUTELY nothing to worry about at all. Not even close to effecting performance.

Plug the stinger, fill it with water, and put it in the freezer over night...(vertically, or so the water doesn't come out..)

I would prob just leave that one alone. Yes you can freeze it but you always
run the risk of splitting it. That dent in not going to affect it in any way. This
is one of those cases where the cure might be worse than the disease.

Good to hear. This and the other comments.

That's my JP2 in the pics there and I really like the way that fits my LX2.
