Valve and cam covers are stripped and ready for paint. CitriStrip worked well and didn't give me cancer. Belt covers ready for scruff and paint. Currently going thru valves. Not much to bike when stripped down. Enjoying the bike so far and will be even better when it runs! Haha

Welp, that tank WAS really bad. Now that the bulk of the shit and rust is removed and it's had time to breathe pinholes have appeared. Had an oil cooled GSXR tank that was just as bad if not worse do the same thing. Either clean 100% with evaporust/metal rescue @ $20 a gallon x 5 plus hole repair $$$ or find a used tank. Damn tank has no dents or anything either. Sucks.

Narrowed down to electrolysis for any remaining rust and Seal-All for the pinholes or a used tank. Very tempted to try the science experiment. No radiator shops around here any more. Fuel tank repair places are a couple hours away at least if they even do motorcycle tanks. If they do work on motorcycle tanks their prices are right up there with near mint used tanks so not worth it when you will have to repaint the tank afterwards.

Went over tank to find all pinholes under the paint. Ended up being a couple dozen. Tank not worth a lot of effort. Used a pick to find and punch out the rust. Used a dremel to get down to clean metal around the pinhole. Used a business card to fill the holes with Seal-All and keep it thin on the tank surface. Have used Seal-All before in gas applications and it works wonders. Never used for pinholes but it came highly recommended from the internet. Ha. Hit with matte black after Seal-All dried as is. May sand and hit with filler primer but tank not really worth it. Will rock it with the battle scars for now.

Think brand of phosphoric acid I typically use is not as strong as it was. One soak used to wipe everything out and now not so much. Either that or I've simply had a run of really nasty tanks. Also don't see much difference after second phosphoric soak. Will be using muriatic acid for first attack and then follow up with phosphoric to remove flash rust and get the iron phosphate etching next time. Found a decent used tank but is yellow and dunno about yellow. Lol

Painted inspection and cam covers with satin silver high temp paint.

Picked up rust free tank for $135 plus shipping. Yellow not my first choice but maybe I need to have a sunnier disposition. Going to come back to bad tank when weather warms up. High 50s / low 60s seems to be too cold to get best out of whatever acid cleaner.

Opener shims adjusted. Used sandpaper and micrometer since all were tight. One closer can be measured and sanded, one closer is good as is and the other two will need larger. Belts getting replaced as well of course.

Thanks! Will the ending be a comedy or a tragedy? Guess it could be both. Haha
