Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Slosh

Post by driftershooter on Mon 06 Jul 2015, 5:28 pm

Hi all, just done the first part of sealing my tank with the cleaning fluid and some stones. The tank needs to dry for the recommended time of 5 days. The question is, do I cover the tank or not? If I don't cover it won't rust form again? Probably a daft question? The stones I put in are blinking hard to get out now so left them in whilst its drying! Any advice welcome cheers

Good advice that. I was going to say something similar, but Tricky got there first.

If you're using actual Slosh DON'T put the tank in an airing cupboard/warm place - this sets off in a cool/damp atmosphere. Your garage/shed will do. I used to sell this stuff.....

^ im not questioning you, but my advice came from someone that had in their instructions to "Place the tank in a warm 70-90 oF place and allow to cure for 24-36 hours". its worked for them.

And this was Slosh? From Rustbuster? If so, that contradicts the instructions from Rustbuster that I used to supply with the tins and what we told customers on the phone..... If it worked, then I have no reason to argue

Yes I read the instructions so the tank went back in the garage to cure instead of the airing cupboard, damn good stuff. Took me bloody ages and a lot of shaking to get them stones out of the tank due to that lip on the inside edge of the fuel cap hole, it will be nuts and bolts next time and I will use a bloody magnet to get them out, cheers!!!!!
Should be dry in about four days, whoopy do do Very Happy

Planning to put Slosh in my tank during my holiday next month.
Just wondering, do I need to somehow block off drain and overflow pipes? No mention of that on Slosh website. Maybe use nails or wire? Also, asume you have to take fuel tap off?

Take the fuel tap off. Don't block any holes! You want air circulating round the inside.

Ok, thanks, will take fuel tap off. Was thinking that the Slosh might bung uo the narrow drain/overfow?

Yeah, that's a good idea as the viscosity of Slosh may well see that blocked up.
