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

Need a fuel tank urgently as mine is knackered. This colour scheme if possible. I am located in Llandudno, North Wales

ask a direct question to the seller (unless stated in the description) asking if it has any internal or external rust. If they reply no or it says it is free from rust you should be able to return it for a refund and probably even get your postage back as it contradicts the description given which is a massive no no on eBay.

If you do get something that isn't as per the description but still very much usable you can usually negotiate a pretty good discount as will be cheaper for them to knock money off then pay for its return and refund.

I bought my tank 'NOS' (new old stock) but came with signs of wear (rub marks from where knees and seat rest) but I was planning on respraying anyway so was no big deal and where as before the sale he absolutely wouldn't go lower than £90 - once I had it in my hands he knocked a further £20 off Smile

(and I'm sure you know but I believe the tanks are the same on all years - not sure about naked vs faired though - check Lings)
