    There's Kreem of course, but you really want to start that process (assuming 3 step) after getting most of the junk out - I've had good success with batches of nuts held together by zip-ties and some acid or just oil. The problem is the mess, and what you do with all the crap you 'flushed' out. Not to mention keeping chemicals off the paint (if it is nice.)

    I've had lousy luck with Kreem (and POR for that matter) once the tank gets a good case of rust. It's almost impossible to get all the old rust out and a coating over rust goes bad within a year and then the tank is toast.

    Somewhere on the net, someone describes a process to clean up the tank using an old car battery through electrolysis. Folks swear by this. If you want to DIY, then I'd look into this.

    My advice on a bad case is find a radiator/fuel tank repair shop that will do the dip/coat for you. I've had a couple tanks done this way that held up fine. You will have to repaint though.

    You use a battery charger for the electrolysis removal of rust, and it works great there are some great how toos on the internet. just google it. Easy way to get it done and nothing harmful is produced.:norton

    You guys have terrible taste in little dual sports. It's a good thing I know not to look at these links.

    The title is free and clear and just not no license plate. There are just the roads in my area. The bike is working great and sounds like its purring. The current registration is California non-opperational. on street.
    :baldy

    All I want is a little bike that is ON/OFF road at a reasonable price... is that so much to ask? :lol3

    Actually, that could work. In CA, PNO is the type of registration; it has nothing to do with the title.
