Tank Dent Removal

Anyone tried pushing dents out of the tank from the inside? Are these tanks double walled and is it possible to get a dent removal tool inside? I've got a couple small dents in my tank. It's not worth it to me to anything more than paintless dent removal, but I wouldn't mind if they were gone. Videos on youtube make it look fairly straightforward, but then again, these are experts doing it. I'd also consider hiring someone, but as a first cut, I might try my hand at pushing it out if I know that it's not double walled or something like that. The attached pic is the best one I have handy to show the dents.

If you're going to tell me how many RPM's something is turning, please tell me how many minutes so I can convert that to something useful .

Good question, but no. The gauge is a little to thick. My expert dent guy tried. He said the alloy was too strong for dent tools.

Good info. It's nothing I can't live with so I'll probably just concentrate my efforts on riding!
