I hear that a lot about Kreem, but I've done all 3 of my bikes with it.  One has had it in there for 18 years.  Another for 12-13 years and the other for 4 or 5 years.  Wondering why it fails on people?

Damn Tuna! that is probably the best way to deal with rust/holes, but holy crap thats a lot of work.

ive sealed two gas tanks with the caswell liner and have had no complaints. you really do need to prep well and i think that's why so many liners fail; user error.

I took the tank from my GL1000 to a local radiator shop when I found a pin hole leak in it. They soldered up the leak, finished cleaning the inside, lined it with Redkote and painted the outside. They charged me $150. I feel like it was money well spent, it's a 40 year old tank. I doubt I'll ever have to worry about it again.
