Tank lining

Post by Kevin Wiseman »

Started to get the bike ready for a repaint, is Por 15 still the liner of choice as I think that although my tank looks good with very little rust obvious on the inside it won’t do any harm.

Hey Kevin, yes I have used it on all my tanks, very happy with the result. On my 85 gsxr750 that I restored the tank was spotless inside which really surprised me, but I still put in the POR15 just to protect it for the future.
The problem is not the problem, the problem is your attitude towards the problem.

Caswell epoxy coatings will hold up the best. That's what I used

Done 8 tanks now one was really leaky in the seams with POR15. Rolled it until it set up and had a good .200 coating in seems. No leaks or issues that one was about 6 years ago. Rest all out there working as should. Carry on :thumbup
