i recently picked up a 98 vfr in sad shape. the tank had bondo on the seal for the fuel pump. my replacement pump, and gasket came in today. i had previously used a wire wheel to remove the bondo from the underside of the tank. when i got everything installed and tightened down, i placed the tank on the bike, and gas started to run out the bottom of the tank. on closer inspection, it looks like the leak is mostly from the bottom of the gasket, closest to the crotch end of the tank. there is a small indention in the tank right there. i'm wondering if this is a normal dent, or if i need to get a new tank, or what... i need some help.
Hi there to the 5th gen community. I am hoping someone might offer some advice. My bike's fuel tank seems to overflow if i fill it past 14 liters. I first noticed it soon after i bought the bike about two months ago. I filled the tank and it seemed to randomly dump fuel onto the tarmac until the tank was below half, on the gauge. I had the tank off yesterday and pulled the pump mech and the gauge mech and found nothing, except that the tank was re-coated on the inside at some point and the gauge mech seems badly rusted. By riding without the fairing for a bit, i have realized that the fuel drains via the vent pipe, which is the smaller diameter pipe of the two dedicated to venting or breathing. There is also an 8mm tube which is the overflow from the tank filler. It doesn't leak from there, but from the vent. I cannot figure out why or how come it would do that. Does the tank build up pressure ? How on earth would one remedy this ? Any Ideas ? Also the motor seems to be missing a bit after removing the tank. Is there a bleeding operation to the fuel delivery that i missed ?
Hi gents. Im refurbishing a much neglected 94 VFR750. Mostly complete. Before i got stuck into it and pulled it all apart to service i noticed it had tank wobble and would rock when you put pressure on it mostly the the left hand side. pretty noticible rock too. I'd forgotten about it till now when its been time to fit the tank back on. Its secure , its not going anywhere, it just annoys me and I dont think it came out of the Honda factory with that wobble at all. Ive pulled the tank back off and had a look and my question is did the tank have black rubber clips/stabilisers? I flipped the tank over and found a small square black strip of thin foam rubber glued to one side and on the other side the glue residue and the black piece missing. but it was stuck on the silver bike frame. from having a bit of a look on Ebay at tanks i can see some of them have like black rubber clips (which would make sense) My guess is previous owner has lost those clips at some point and has glued bits of foam on to attempt to stop the rock. And one of those bits has slipped of and restuck to the frame. idk heres some pics love to hear your experience or opinions on this cheers Metalicr (Ben)
For all those who were wondering what's going on in side our tanks. I know I was wondering what damage I could do with a tank-liner. It seems this little unit has been through the treatment too, because both strainers seem to be completely block with resin. cheers ian
