Default Re: Pork & Beans Gas Tank

Today I noticed a particularly strong gas odor emanating from my bike and sure enough, my tank was leaking gas. The JB Weld holding the petcock on to the bottom of the tank had cracked. I am using the SBP petcock which is quite a bit heavier than the stock unit, so I think the vibration over time just got to it.

So back to the stock tank for now. The next tank will be soldered! I will definitely miss having the sight gauge for the fuel.
