Motorcycle Repair in Tacoma

I have some gas tank problems with my Yamaha and I was wondering if it would be cheaper to DIY or take it to someone that does motorcycle repair in Tacoma? What do you think?

Take it to a professional. Unless you are a professional welder and sprayer. It would be cheaper in the short term to do it yourself. But, you stand a chance of blowing yourself up or setting yourself and your bike on fire.

SOURCE: New motorcycle gas tank

oily residue would not harm the engine...unless it had alot of dirt in it...was it a BRAND NEW tank, or refinished? A small ammount of oil in the fuel may make it smoke a little from the exhaust, and foul the plugs, but it would eventually go away as you refilled the tank.....do you have a fuel filter installed?....ALWAYS flush then new tank when you install...if it continues after another tank of gas , let me know and we will figure it out

SOURCE: Gas leaks from hose running from tank connected to nothing

i would guess that that is your fuel line and reconnecting it would be a good idea as leaking fuel and motorbike engines dont mix that well and normally result in your bike going up in flames

Check on ebay for a shop manual or Clymer manual. owners manual won't do any good. You can usually find one ranging from 3 to 35 dollars. Also check http://www.xjbikes.com/Forums.html. It is an excellent forum for free information on anything you want to know about your XJ.
