Gas Tank for 2002 XR250

Recommended Posts

The gas tank on my 02 xr250 developed a small leak but a leak none the less.

1. Can it be fixed? and if so, what do you recommend?

2. Should I replace it? and if so, where to buy it from? (don't care for the over size tanks).

Thanks,

I've had good luck with JB weld in fixing pinhole leaks in two tanks.

Just rough up the area with sandpaper and follow the basic instructions.

One tank has been trouble free for 4 years with two JB weld patches.

Good luck.

They make plastic "welders" - my suggestion would be to find an auto body shop that does bumper repair to "weld" it for you. Empty it of all fuel and let it completely dry prior to them performing any work on it...

Otherwise e-bay is your friend. :ride:

And Clarke only makes a larger tank for this model XR - not oem size. Clarke makes very, very nice tanks.
