I had an FZR400 with Zreem liner that peeled off.  The only liner I use now is Caswell.  It sticks well and basically coats the inside of the tank with a tough glass clear coating. BUT, the tank has to be spotless to get any liner to stick to the surface.  It's not much good if it sticks to rust or grease or old liner, but Caswell seems to create a stronger coating than others.

Caswell is really where it's at.  You can do the clear or go with Dragon's Blood, which is red.  It's always reliable and does a great job filling holes and cracks.  I've also used Red-Kote with good success.  Red-Kote stays flexible and is inconsistent on cure.  I've always let it cure for a week before putting gas in the tank.  Red-Kote will only fill pinholes, while Caswell does more.  One thing I like about Red-Kote is that it's available at any O'Reilly's Auto Parts, so it's really easy to get here in the US.

I don’t really have rust in the tank yet but the old liner is damn near impossible to remove so I was hoping to find something that would bind to that, the liner that I used last time was glass clear and I really was cleaning the tank very well.

Well I decided to take it to a prof that will cut out the previous work and start all over, so I can’t wait to hear the judgement on the tank

Anyone see a thread where someone has cut into a tank and then re-welded or brazed it back together again? I've got a really rusty tank that I'd like to do that too. Just tying to think of the best way to approach it and would like to learn from other people's experience. ;D
