Just noticed this was all bent in on my rear right tire and not sure how that even happened. Is this something I should worry about or should I be fine?

Thanks in advance

I just got worried that it's ok for the boot to look like that...sort of got pushed in by something...It isn't leaking any grease so I think it should be fine.

yeah I tried to get it all nice and flush and pull out the indented part....didn't have much luck or grip to get...I don't want to get too crazy and then really damage it.

As long as there is no hole, your good, when the joint warms up some, the folds should straighten out.

One thing you could do is to clean it real good and then apply a couple coats of rubber cement (the type u use for fixing a flat).

Hmm could do that as a safety precaution...i also heard I could use plastidip to spray over a few times

The crinkled part is not going to last long .
Every time the shaft makes a revolution , it will stress those new folds .
Usually , if you turn the kinks into a more relaxed or "open" position , they can be carefully massaged back to their normal shape .

I've had plenty do that on me with no problems. Usually after riding around a little bit they fix themselves. Ride on!
