For cleaning badly rusted tanks I have used small fish tank gravel and some diesel , kerosene or similar. Put it in shake it around , empty and flush. It will remove the rust scale and debris that would otherwise have fallen off in the longer term in normal use. A good step 1 clean before any chemical process.

Don't put the gravel back in the fish tank. :S :S :S

I would be surprised if that fuel filter flows enough to keep up with the flow demands of the fuel injection system, it looks more suited for the much lower flow of a carburetter bike. When you see the size of the original fuel filter you know what I mean. Do you have any fault codes in the DFI control box window? I also wonder if running without air filters is affecting the running.


I also change the fuel filter to a much bigger one and its sty the same, I will work on the bike again in the weekend and see how its running without fuel filter at all, maybe this is my issue.
I didn't check for any faults on the DFI box, but that's a good idea, I'll do that as well.
for now I cannot fine Air filters, I may add the half top original box and see if there is any different.

Thank you

I used the metal rescue, it gave the gas tank a good clean.
the gas tank look good but I probably have lots of loose rust sitting on the bottom
I will try to clean with baking soda and vinegar and give it a good wash then seal it

clean the gas tank with baking soda and vinegar
defiantly help but the tank always stay a bit rusty
after done washing with water I cleaned it with paint thinner and carburetor cleaner
then dry with heat gun really good
I used the POR 15 sealer and it looking good so far
I will wait cupule more days till it completely dry and use it again with gas

Some interesting stuff going on there Mister. Not my style, but I can appreciate what you've done.
Are you sure you have enough brakes on the rear????
I would be soooo tempted to paint that overflow tank blue and label it........
