Lay it upside down or on its side so the remaining fuel spreads into a wide puddle. That will help it evaporate faster.

Diggin' your street legal DR flat tracker, I sent your pics to a fellow bike builder and he wondered if you knew the inside of your fiberglass tank needed to be coated if you plan on using fuel with any Ethanol in it, he ran into problems with a Montesa trials bike and a older model Buell with fiberglass tanks, seems it creates little balls of crap that clog the petcock!

I know some boat builders (American Offshore) that tried making the tanks out of fiberglass. Didn't work well for them. Not only was it not USCG approved but the gas would slowly eat the resin which would get in the carbs/injection systems. We were scratching our heads what kept getting in there until fiberglass strands started showing up in the filter. We initially thought they might have gotten trash in the tanks during the build....we wish. When we pulled the fuel sensor out and saw there were no alumn. tanks we about shit. We couldn't cut the boat in half to install tanks so we installed huge fuel filters and the guy carries around a case of them with him. Not my idea of a fix but the guy didn't want to get rid of the boat.

So yeh, coat the inside with something. What..I don't know. Looks great though!


Edit: I forgot to mention- this was before they even started putting ethanol in fuel.

There was a thread on drilling a hole and lubing it and then just sealing the hole with a small bolt and RTV. Starts sqeaking again next year then just remove and relube. Or just drill a new hole every year .

The code is only needed if you want to make a key without having one to copy.

spare key

I need to get a spare key for my DR650

The small shop in my neighborhood even had the blanks on stock. Ask before you order one online.

right, then let it sit upside down with the fuel cap off in the Sun for a few hours. That should do it and make it safe for shipping. (I did the same)

The Corbin for my stock tank fits very well on my Acerbis 5.3 All I need to do is move the two brackets forward about 3/4".

The key code number is stamped on the bottom of the stock gas cap.

I remember that thread and it might have been the poster mentioning about possible removing the end cap. After seeing the photos and reading I would try to remove end cap before going ahead and removing everything.

Not necessarily. Mine did have something vaguely resembling a key code, but after burning through a few blanks, I had to have the key imprinted.
