lrizzo Posted June 1, 2009 Report Share Posted June 1, 2009 I really hate to say this but I am having problems with the coating in my motorcycle tank. Im really bummed out. I thought I did it perfect. I had the motorcycle tank perfectly clean with the aqua clean and the rust blast. Then I took a hair dryer and actually let it blow through the fill hole and vent out the hole where the pet cock mounts for over 3 hours. The tank was BONE DRY. I used a very bright flashlight to verify no water. I let it cure for over a week. Actually more like 10 days. I filled the tank and rode it for a week. I thought everything was great until I went to fill up today. My stomach sank. There are huge blisters at the bottom of the tank. I thought it may have been an optical illusion with the gas being in it and the light shining in the tank. So I get a flashlight and shine it to the bottom looking through the gas. Sure enough, HUGE blisters. I still didnt believe it so I straightened a coat hanger to poke the blister and I did poke it and it broke through. It was not soft, it was pretty hard coating to poke through. Do you think I can just empty the tank and just break off the big pieces???? Maybe it was my fault. Maybe I let it pool up. The coating on the sides and top of the tank seems really tough and hard. Whats the best solution? I dont mind just breaking up the blisters but Im worried it will start flaking and clog up my filter. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
