hi gang- as i get further into this bugger i have more and more questions. I have pulled the tank today while i am waiting on my POR 15 tank sealer to get here. The PO said the petcock did not work and now i can see why, it looks to me like both of the screens at the pick tubes are pretty cloggged. I have started with a mix of simple green and hot water and now i am on to CLR and hot water. Any ideas of a good solution to use to de rust good? The POR kit i have used previously on the Concours came with a soultion but what has anyone used with success? Also- those screens look to me like they could get clogged with tank sealent pretty easily. Any ideas on that as well. The Concours has a removable petcock screen but i do see any way to get those out of there!

Thanks

Jeff

I use Purple Power de-ruster for any rusty part that I can brush off with steel brush afterwords. Works great to de-rust. This stuff converts rust to iron phosphate. Leaves a moisture barrier on surface that resists rusting. Don't tell anyone, however, I used it to spray the inside of my micro-rusted tank, then blew it dry over and over a few times. Had no more rust for the 1yr 10mths I rode her.

if your pick up screens get plugged with the por tank treatment ( of witch mine did) i used a speedo cable , the inner one , and a drill motor that was reversible to clean out the pick up pipes and put a hole in the screens. both main and reserve. just be sure the drill is turning the same way as the cable is wound . its tight going around the bends in the tubes. but it will go though them.

yes the por 15 works great removes the rust and seals the tank better than new, just follow the steps takes a bit of time, I used a coat hanger to clear the metal reserve tube in the tank mine was extremely rusty, also rebuilt the petcock with a kit I bought online.

morriscat- i have seen the purple power at auto parts stores and i think wal mart but is this something special with the de ruster. I have a lot of rust on the bike obviously so this mite be good before i use the por black and the por paint on areas of the frame. Where did you get yours?

Also great ideas to just drill holes in the screen. Do you really think it is necessary to clean out the pickup tubes as well?

I like the POR products especially for redoing things.

White vinegar will clean it out. But immediately line the tank or it will come back. Jay

Purple Power De-ruster is one product, and PP cleaner/degreaser is the one in most stores... Advance is the only place I have found PP de-ruster. Try it on a small spot,, think you'll like the results.
