Not sure where to post this
« on: 19 October 2017, 09:56:06 PM »
I have a friend who owns a 250cc Royal Enfield Continental GT that has a leak in the Fibre Glass fuel tank, the leak appears to be coming from some where around the fuel cock/tap.
Anyone know of a company in the South of UK (Hampshire maybe) that specialises in that type of repair?

not sure anyone who does the repair - have heard of this happening on fibrglass tanks from the increasing amount of ethanol in fuel
it needs a coating of something like POR15 otherwise it will just keep happening to other areas of the tank.
not sure what the correct stuff is as i have only used por15 on steel tanks

riding this that and the other
modifing everything...

Por15 is now starting to get reports of it failing due to too much ethanol in fuel so not sure it would. Be a long term fix
