Question about Motorcycles
Hi, Anonymous you have 2 options either do it yourself or take it to a professional radiator shop. There are many home remedies out there on the internet and Youtube some are ok while others are a waste of time, you only want to do this once and have a finished product that will last forever. In my 50 years of working on bikes I have cleaned many tanks, I have come up with a procedure that requires the minimum amount of time and money but produces optimum results, obviously, the severity of the contamination will dictate the necessary time it will take to achieve the desired end results of forever and no leaks and the best insurance policy is "PREP!!!PREP!!!PREP!!!PREP!!!PREP" and now for the kit, I recommend "POR-15" or "Red-Kote" stay away from any "Kreem" products as I have had issues with peeling in the past and you can get them from Amazon or eBay now for the fun part:
1. Drain and remove the gas tank.
2. Remove the cap-petcock-hoses and plug or tape the openings (not cap)
3. Insert water hose a let run for 3 minutes to remove loose primer flakes
4. Drain 1/2 of the tank replace gas cap shake like a martini for 30 seconds and pour out the remaining water and let air dry.
5. Pour in 1 cup of nuts-bolts-washers-ball bearings etc. and shake like a martini for 1 minute then empty contents, repeat the process until all contamination is removed, flush with water and use compressed air to remove water residue and vapor to minimize a micro-thin layer of surface rust that will start to form almost immediately so it's a good idea to start the installation of the sealing kit asap.
6. Follow kit directions precisely as indicated and you will end up with a finished project that you can be confident in and proud of.
