Drink the gas and run the tube from your EZ Leaker to the carb.

That Kreem stuff is crap, it has flaked off in every tank I, or my freinds have used it in.

If the tank is metal, have it welded.

My experience with epoxy based sealers is they will work for a short time, but the extra vibrations of a motorcycle have them cracking and leaking again.

Don't use the Kreem stuff ever, its a good way to force you to buy a new gas tank.

No. Always use Kreem! Treat your oil with Slick 50. When engine performance fades with age use Mechanic-in-a-Can to revitalize it. Use Bardahl, too!

Of course you ran screeming like a girl. Smokin that durned girls sig. If you where smokin a manly sig (marlboro, winston, unfiltered camels etc) you would have finished the smoke and put it out right where the leak is to make the spot, and then swallowed the butt because you don't want to litter.

Never had any luck with Kreem either, it just peels off in sheets. Get it welded or get another tank, or just wear rain pants so the gas doesn't sting your nuts.......

This stuff works great:

I used it on a rusted-out '71 DT1MX tank, doesn't leak a drop now.



Just cover the bolt holes for the gas shut off valve (screw the bolts in before sloshing the stuff around in the tank).

Since I fool with old metal tank dirt bikes Ive dealt with this problem several times.Ive had bad luck with "home repairs " and Kreem. Take it to a good radiator shop. He will braize it up and coat it...has worked for me.

I used Kreem on my SRX tank about four years ago, and it worked fine. It was an especially necessary deal because the tank was modified to get bigger carbs to fit and the weld of the new bottom could have been better.



Yamaha sells a two-part product that is reported to work better than Kreem. I'm going to use it on the Z50 and see how that goes.



Good luck, Monsieur Burns (I thought of you this morning when my friend showed me his brand new XB12 Lightning...he's happy as can be, and I'm looking forward to when he'll let me try it out).

I forgot the second question. I do have a spare SRX tank on a shelf in the garage...
