Tank liner removal

The bike my son bought has it. They didn't stop the rust. How do I get it out? Currently the tank has a gallon of acetone in it. It softened it up but not washing off. Thanks in advance.

Aircraft paint remover will do the trick...

I agree this should take care of it ..... but wear proper PPE and make sure you dispose of the waste properly.

And I'll have to be careful not to get any on the paint. Overall the bike looks pretty good. I need to find a skinny long handled wire brush.

I made a brush like that once to clean out a tank. I used a cone wire brush for a die grinder then weleded it to a longer steel rod at about 16" in length .... this let me run it on a pistol drill and fish it down into the tank.

Certainly not pretty and not stable to run at crazy high RPM .,.... but it worked.

Find some way to protect the paint before you do too much. Maybe Plasti-dip? It's very difficult to not spill or splatter when working on a tank.

I think I've got a plan that involves and apparatus that will attach the tank to the rear wheel of my garden tractor then with some dry wall screws in the tank run the tractor on jacks at low speed in first gear

Of course I'll take pictures and post my results

How well did it work? Did you get all of the screws back out?

After replacing the float valve. No more leaks. 20 degrees out so she's a little cold blooded but I think she's going to be a runner.

Didn't work as well as I hoped but I did get all the screws back and the nuts I had in there and an old fuel screen?

That hesitation on throttle opening could be due to not running an airbox. I've always heard that Hondas are pretty picky about airbox volume and pressure. I know my old 80's CB was.

Yeah I figure it'll smooth out a lot when it gets back together. My son put the air box to carb gaskets in his toolbox and took them home with him. So the project is on pause for the moment.
