Paint less dent removal

I have seen a couple of articles about painless dent repair and wondered if anyone had tried any of this. One method was to heat the tank slightly with a hair dryer then spray it with canned air (upside down spray). Another involved putting a blood pressure cuff in the tank to act as a bladder to push out the dent. I wondered if the rc51 tank was dual walled or not and if that would affect these methods.
I have small dents in the tank on an edge not on the flat.

I never met a motorcycle I didn't like but I always start to change them.

i had a small dent in mine about the size of a quarter. Its really hard to pull a dent if its on an edge. A body shop will do it for about 150-200.
