Bert Hockins May possibly Own a  Yamaha Enduro?


Default Pin holes in gas tank

Found these pin holes formed under paint. Should this be trashed or is it fixable?

The underside of my Z50 minitrail tank looked like that. I took it to a local radiator shop. They filed all the holes with lead and lined the inside. That was 8 years ago and still good today.

Yeah, very fixable. We do it all the time.

What Rick said. Quite doable. Obviously you'll be doing a re-paint. I would think something serious like judiciously welding them shut, or a radiator shop fix as mentioned. Then do a good Caswell or POR-15 tank liner and you should be set.
