Sure it's repairable. Most of that will bang out, then you'll spend some $$ getting it re-sealed at Phoenix Intercoating.

everything can be fixed, but your gonna spend too much money trying to repair it. get a new one. not worth the hassle of fixing and resealing.

some tanks have a "bladder" tank inside, so where you have the outside metal painted, and an inside liner that actually holds the gas. that way when you get into an accident, you can't as easily puncture your tank, or scrape through it.

either way your best bet is to just go get a new/new to you/used one. spend a buck and be safe. it is gas in there. and you are leaning on top of it so might as well.

Really, a bladder huh? That's a new one to me. This tank, like every other one I've repaired, is a stamped steel tank, with no inner bladder (although I've never repaired a new Triumph tank, so it may have some kind of liner).

Banging it out from the inside with a brass dolly is no big deal. The rest is Bond-o to smooth the curves. I have a company that re-seals tanks after a tank leaks or gets corrosion/ surface rust. Minimum cost to re-seal a tank is $125, and it goes up from there.

Easiest route? Get a used tank in good condition. Likely, a tank for your 675 is going to be expensive because it's unique and there aren't too many on the road (like GSXR, 600rr, 636, etc).

Likely, if you repair it, you'll spend about the same, unless you do the work yourself, and I'll give you the information for the company that will re-seal the tank for you (at my price). No big deal, and with the work you did repairing the F4i body, you should be able to repair the tank too. If you fore-go the dent work, you can get away with multiple layers of Bond-o and keep this tank as a spare. Capacity isn't an issue if you're only sprinting with this bike.

That would be a healthy chunk of bondo. If you were going that route, I would weld a plate in to cover the dent, then bondo it. At least it wouldn't be a 2" thick chunk of plastic.

But if it is a single wall tank, should be able to slide hammer it out, reseal and repair.

that's kinda what I was thinking.


on the topic of resealing, does that Kreem stuff or the POR-15 work as a resealer?

Kreem works, but I prefer to send my stuff off to Phoenix and have them do a good professional cleaning and re-seal.
