I started out using JB weld when it first leaked. Stopped the leak, but like wkrizan said, when I put it on, I heard a faint "pop" while tightening the bolts. Sure enough, it leaked again. Spent five hours and broke two dental tools getting the JB weld out! The tank was sealed at the stealership by the PO. Not sure what adding more would do, but that is a possibility too. Think I read a thread (by fergy?) about cleaning rust from a tank with nuts and muriatic acid. Anybody know if that will remove tank liner?
Hadn't thought about solder; I could do that! My mind associates solder with electrical connections.
I'm also looking at a spare tank on ebay. Nothing matches mine and I sure would like to keep her looking uniform; she's a beautiful thing. But I've had her over a month and only put two miles on her! I want to get her on the road ASAP, and if that means getting a spare tank, I'll do it!
Open to any other suggestions too!
I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
