  • Scratches on the Fuel Tank - how to remove

    created by: Anirban12:00 AMThu, June 25, 2009
  • Hi Everyone, I have just returned from the Delhi Leh bike trip. Lots of scratches have been there on my fuel tank. Can anyone suggest how or which paint should I use to cover those?

  • I use a tanky pack at all times riding long haul and it of course does scratch up the tank...i polish it up every so often but always sell the bike with the saddle bags and tank pack...the new owner will have to deal with it mate, cheers, Mark in Kathmandu

  • Guess ur problem is solved already, but let me just continue 4 others' sake. The RE original Magic Black colour can be replicated in 2k paints .. mix that with 2k hardener.... then, finish it off with clear.
