I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

Quote from: ssevy on June 06, 2021, 04:43:13 AMI had my tank welded with a special machine at a body shop, and it did not hold, as they used the wrong material.
I had it done a second time, and I believe it was nylon that they used, and it is still going strong.
I think I have a thread on here somewhere with the details?

So glad I stumbled on this post.  There was no follow up to your initial post.  As a newbie owner but familiar with plastic tank woes from my Cagiva Gran Canyon, I'm happy to hear it worked well and is STILL working well.  Drader injection tool at precisely the correct temp and matching material I hope will solve any problems I may have in the future with my '98.

Mine is still tight as a crab's ass ( and that's watertight )

I may not be big, but I'm slow.

Make sure the drain tube from the filler surround is clear. The screw in alloy ferrule often gets furred up and fine debris builds up in the tube. If it is blocked take great care trying to clear it as it's all plastic inside the tank. Blow from the bottom up. Check the filler is getting a good seal on the steel ring as they often rust.
