kc2dgq any exposed metal will flash rust.

What concerns me is that you have no liner for protection in there...why is it exposed metal to begin with?

I would look into POR15 products. The tank looks clean other than the flash rust, so if it were me, I would use the POR motorcycle kit to seal it:
POR-15 Motorcycle Fuel Tank Repair Kit

POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser to remove gum, sludge, varnish
POR-15 Metal Prep to remove rust & prepare tank for sealer
POR-15 Fuel Tank Sealer creates a permanently sealed tank

I did mine and am extremely happy with the outcome.

Rust In Tank - Too Much?

So when I was taking my tank off I noticed there was some crap in the tank, could hear it moving around when shaking the tank. So I decided to rinse it out I had gotten most of the water out and thought I would be good letting it air dry, apparently not. I now have rust droplets in my tank.

How big of a deal are these? Any easy ways to get rid of just this small amount? Do I even need to worry about this much? I tried wiping some of them off and they come off with me just lightly going over them with a screwdriver wrapped in a towel, but I can't get all of them this way.
