Mate, the only thing I have found that sticks remotely to xlpe is crazy glue. I fear that depending on the size of the leaking area you may have to purchase a new tank. Dale

I've plugged small leaks with Loctite Master Gasket. It stays a bit flexible, but being anerobic, gotta seal it off. Could apply a patch with some self tappers I suppose, using it on the threads too if its a big one.

Re: Fuel tank leak

3M DP8005 or DP8010 will stick.
Its more of an adhesive and it isn't cheap but cheaper than a new tank.

they are for an acrylic application? is that about right?

I'd have thought a polyurethene app was better?

apparently the 8010 is slower but at the end of the day it's the solvent attack that phuqs em up.

Re: Fuel tank leak

DP8010 is the business!

rode the bike in tests all day saturday and green laned on sunday.

Now all i need is a sh**load more glue as the rear end snapped clean off due to the weight of mud on Saturday.

sorted!
