New to me FE570

Hi all. Just bought a 2009 FE570. Loving it. Trying to figure out how to use this forum. Ive already learned so much just from lurking for a few months.
Looking forward to your helpful advice!

Got one good dirt ride in. Seriously fun. Now it’s all torn down getting detailed. Got the typical 70 Degree tank leak and ignition side cover oil leak. Trying to seal the tank and thinking of sanding the cover like I’ve read about. Tried a bit of sanding but it seemed like it was way too far to go. Big gaps on a piece of glass. Maybe a new gasket and some Permatex black over the top after it’s torqued will do the trick. Using JB Weld ClearWeld on the tank on a recommendation from some thread. We’ll see.

Also what photo site are people using since photobucket seems so shady?

A simple O ring can prevent a leak in your sub tank. Rubber inner tubeetc.

I had a leak and used an inner tube patch. Never leaked again. They arent under pressure due to the tank breather. On the tank breather, look how low it is. There is more range by placing a self tapper as far back up this tank as possible. It not only allows more fuel capacity but helps fill quicker.

Sealers on gaskets are not a fan of mine. Excess can enter your oil system. Glass the cover flat and use slightly thicker gasket paper. I make my own gaskets as I keep sheets of various thickness. Gives the ability to have a gasket on hand.

Oh and welcome and enjoy one of the most reliable versatile beasts on the planet.

Thanks for the tips. I have read that sealers could seep into the oil. I'll definitely try harder to sand the cover flat. Making my own gasket sounds promising too.
As for the O-ring fix on the tank, you have any pics? I'm not sure where you mean. One of the bolts that connects the rear plastics to the tank at the bottom was broken off and some caveman PO just took a self tapping screw and went diagonally up into the tank. So we took that out and just patched right over it. That spot is holding fuel as of now. We'll just attach a nut to the outside to hold the plastics on, or zip ties if that fails.
There's a real ugly patch on top where the red plug used to be. Smells like gas. Trying to grind off the patch and redo it.
I love the idea of faster fill time and more capacity. I'll look into relocating the vent as soon as the tank holds fuel. I'll probably need some more detail on that too. If it's holding fuel I may be a little gun shy to go banging holes into it again for a new vent, but that does sound like a great idea.

I had the same one leaking as well.

Use a bit of tie wire, feed it through the side filler cap to then come out through that bottom hole that needs fixing. Slide some fuel line over the wire at the top and feed it so it comes out through the hole. The idea of the wire is to guide this fuel line. Once the fuel line is protruding place a 6mm bolt and decent sized washer that will fit through the filler ok onto the fuel line. Use hose that has the bolt very snug. Now pull the hose through so the bolt protrudes through the hole. Cut some of this hose off longer than what the tank thickness is. The idea is that when you place another washer and nut over the bolt, it will make the hose swell as you do up the nut. You just hold the end of the bolt from turning.
