KLR 250 Gas Tank

Hey All, Got an issue with my wifes KLR 250 Gas tank. Found Rust on the back bone part of the tank, inside where the fuel is. Im thinking of cleaning it up with some silica sand and some elbow grease, But, my question is does anyone know of a aftermarket tank, that will fit, or should i just look for a used one.

Thanks in advance


Looked at Kreem and POR 15, thanks for the tips on products, does anyone know of a good solid way to remove the rust, im trying Electolisis i think thats how to spell it, but also silica sand and shacking it, any other ideas that have worked for some, and maybe what didnt?

Have you looked into Kreem or POR-15?

Here ya go!

I put one of these on my wife's KLR250, and it was great.
