cool, you made your bike look like a yamaha

also, is the tank plastic? How are you combating the bubbling of the paint? Did you undercoat the tank?

PPG makes a polypropylene primer that seals the pores on plastic gas tanks. I hope OP was aware of it pre-paint.

I've used that stuff, and it is really more of a gimmick and doesn't work. The only way you can really get away with is if you coat the inside of the tank.

Edit: Metal tank, nvm then.

It worked for me on several dirt bikes. Did you empty and neutralize the tank first?

Hmm... I cleaned it, but I did not neutralize it. That could have been the kicker. I know many people who have had the deal with the same issue, but I never saw heard of them neutralizing the tank. Interesting indeed.

I don't have anything now, but I've had a few ATCs, TRXs, and CRs. Also did a lot of work on some DRZ400/450s and assorted bikes. The market is really low on bikes though, especially two strokes. If I had a good place to stick one, I would buy some up.
