    OK, got another 87, and the fuel tank has some internal surface rust. Is there a product to clean and coat it. Or should I just put the money towards a replacment



    thx

    If you want to be thorough then you could put a hand full of small nuts and bolts in the tank and shake it for all your worth, empty the nuts and bolts, then slosh some old fuel or something around to rinse out all the loose rust flakes and dust out.

    Then as Qwerty say install an additional filter.

    I've used a POR kit on another bike, it worked very well:
