    You can thank me later.

    KBS has a complete kit for motorcycle tanks - stripper, prep, sealant. I have used it on fiberglass with success. Fiberglass is well known for being a PIA to seal reliably for a motorcycle tank.

    You will need some small nuts/bolts to use to break the rust up when using the stripper. Follow the directions to the letter.

    Good stuff, but it is as noted, a bit of work, and must be done as they instruct... if the tank is really rusted inside, its a long process...
    I've used this stuff, and also the POR15 product, and both are almost identical as far as components and outcome go, I think KBS was an offshoot of someone from POR15's original product staff...

    When I did my KZ tank, it was severly rusted, and I ended up using aquarium gravel (to prevent sparks) and mineral spirits in the tank, and made a sort of "vibro-agitator" to shake the tank for hours on end, to get the rust to a point where the POR rust remover could do its thing, but it worked well...
    Since then, I've used and assisted a couple others, using an electrolysis method using a battry charger, and sacraficial steel rod, immersed in the tank with a solution of hot water and Arm and Hammer Washing Soda (not baking soda), it really worked well but was a bit tricky and time consuming, in the end it really did do a great job and was very safe process, as I didn't want to ruin the tank by using acid compounds as many places do...

    Lots of stuff on the internet about the process, shoot me a note if you are interested, and I can direct you to the processes... I video recorded the process for doing this on some reloading dies that were extremely rusted, and returned them to like new condition. My total cost was about $20 to repair about $1800 worth of tools...

    I'm surprised this has not been mentioned.

    I douched my VR6 block with this stuff with great results. Safe on just about everything but rust, a little pricey tho

    Its slow.
    A tank would take probably 24hrs with the occasional agitation. The rusty part has to stay submerged or completely wet for hours. Its actually pretty amazing considering how safe it is. Usually that "green" type stuff is sissy.
    It is for delicate kind of stuff. It's not meant to replace media blasting. Its taylor-made to a bike gas tank. Or old calipers stuff that cant take media blasting etc..

    Forget that molassas b/s you see on youtube.. it doesn't work, nor does any other "edible" thing, like CocaCola, or Vinager.. unless you want it soaking for 6 months..
    What Chris posted, Evapo-Rust, is a good product, but agitation, and heat help it work, I never used it yet, but can say a close friend used it, and didn't have the patiance I have with stuff, he expected "overnight" results, and gave up on it.. but he had it sitting in a tank in a garage at 40*, and never agitated it.. then dumped it.. waste of his money, I'm sure it would work well when done at 75* and agitated, my pal had no patiance,nand he always pays the price for it...

    I may buy some next time I need to do a tank.

    Basically $20 park fees go to him, plus they're having a poker run and auction

    I'm not the only one crazy enough to be riding today - passed some guy on a cruiser in Alliance, first other bike I've seen on the road in a couple of weeks.

    Not enough free time today to go up and get the tag, though. (As has been the case a lot lately.)
