Gotta disagree with you on that one.Number one reason why Steel is the worst material to make a gas tank out of. Rust.
... number 2 reason is weight.
Yep - the Aprilia Dorsoduro had/has a problem with the expanding plastic fuel tank. Haven't had any problems with the Shiver 750, however it is always covered and garaged and rarely has a full tank - don't know if that is a factor. Maybe it was/is a venting problem with the DDs.Gotta disagree with you on that one.
As any one who owns a bike with a painted plastic tank knows (Ducati and Aprilia I'm looking at you), PLASTIC is the worst fookin material to make a gas tank out of. It's not a question of IF it expands but WHEN it will expand.
Thanks for the explanation. Appreciated.It's a weave yes, but it's filling the weave with the resin that's the problem, I use various silicone bags made to suit the moulds and infuse the resin via a vacuum to pull the resin through the cloth.
This in theory should remove any air from the weave and fill it with resin, I still get some tiny pin holes on occasion, warming the resin with a heat gun as it travels through the mould helps as it thins the resin and expands the air bubbles to get them moving.
