Fuel Tank Problems
ARE YOU EXPERIENCING:
Blocked Carburettor Jets?
All of these are caused by corrosion in your fuel tank.
So how is this corrosion caused?
When unleaded fuels were introduced, additives based on ethanol were included to improve performance. Unfortunately, ethanol takes in water from the atmosphere and the combination of ethanol and water is highly corrosive. When any bike has been standing for a period of time, the tank is likely to have incurred considerable corrosion damage. We have even seen such damage in bikes less than ten years old.
Corrosion leads to rust flakes which block the carburettor jets and injectors, while corrosive residue in the fuel invitably leads to perforation of the tank at its lowest point. The tank on a classic bike, especially a rare model, can be very expensive to replace and it may take a long time for you to source a replacement in decent condition.
Devon Bike Tank Restorers have been repairing and lining bike tanks for over eight years. We have successfully undertaken work on tanks as diverse as Brough Superiors and Honda Monkey Bikes, some of which were in very poor condition. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and let us put the heart back into your cherished bike!
