Hi all
Need your opinion on how to prevent rust from forming in my fuel tank.Its a2006 and I would rather try to prevent a rust problem now instead of fixing one later.What I have been doing is topping it off after every ride.Is there anything else I should be doing??

Just add seafoam. If you are using the bike, then it isn't so much of a problem. But if it sits for some time (like a couple of weeks or more), then just keepeing the tank full with some seafoam will do the trick. It comes down to lowering the amount of O2 in the tank. And the best way to do this is by filling the tank with gas. The area between the tank and the cap will have O2, but it will also have fuel vapor. So as long as you have a full tank, and the fuel is stabilzed by something like seafoam, you're good to go.

Thanks for the info
Now that it is getting really cold and I dont take it out near as much I keep a can of gas with stabilizer in it to refuel after riding.Do you think running the bike with the stabilizer in it for the next 2or3 months will hurt it in any way?

Seafoam works like a stabilizer? Figure out what a stabilizer does, and see if seafoam will do it. Personally, I haven't checked, but I imagine that because it works to remove water and dissolve contaminants that it probably would be a good bet to use it as a stabilizer. Check the seafoamsales.com site and see what they say...
