Guys, could you please help me with my gas tank. The thing is that I have a lot of rubbish inside the tank and I would like to deattach it to clean (or cut if neccessary). The question is, how I could do that? Has anybody thied that?
thx guys... as I understand I have to deattach the whole engine at first :shock: Also, I have no idea what to do next as I have to clean the whole tank.. I could try to sandblast it, but it will rust if it will stay for a while... oh... horrible things... :|
Finally...FYI what i have done. Deattaching is horrible story, and I decided do not do that. As I had a lot of dirty I filled the tank with a solvent, which corrodes the dust from the tanks sides. I have made it three times. After that I put inside zinc oxide, which takes all the corrosion away.. After that a few times cleaning with solvent and gasoline and finally: Clear tank without corrosion and dust wuthout deattaching it from the scooter! And I have to replace the fuel filter for sure...
When I bought my 09 back in 09, I took a peak under the tupperware and the tank was rusting.
The dealership replaced the tank and they said they had to drain the coolant and unbolt the engine.
If there's an easier way, please let me know. That fuel filter is a bear with a bad attitude if you ever want to change it. I haven't found a way to be able to pull the fuel pump out without having to remove the tank.
