I’ve heard several different methods on how to do this I just purchased an excellent condition tank for my 2001 ninja 500 but the inside is full of rust what’s the best method. Thanks for your input in advance it’s been a while since I’ve use this forum, but it’s all of your input that has allowed me to build a sick bike thats like the energizer bunny on steroids. 🤠

What sort of rust are we talking about here? Light powdery rust that is only just starting, or deep pits close to the point of total perforation through the tank metal? The various methods will each have their merits based on the severity of the rust.

Never done it myself (never needed to), but some people swear by the POR tank liner after they have cleaned the rust internally. Some people on here have done the treatment, so you should be able to search for those posts.
