Wasn't my bike, the frames going to be replaced in the near future. Im repairing it for now, besides the dent the frame is straight.
The straightness of the dent doesnt matter. What does is that you have stretched the metal beyone it's yield point meaning that the properties of the metal are no longer the same as the undamaged metal.

More importantly though is the frame shape is no longer concave. Putting too high a compression load on it could cause an instability in the frame and cause it to buckle.

Replace the frame. Normally a frame like that would result in the bike being totalled.

A bike with an imperfect frame is a dangerous bike. It may ride perfectly fine until you hit a reflector at 160, shake, and go off into the woods. That was a GSX-R though . . .
