Hi
I just bought a 2011 CBR 250 R with about 14600 km (/9000 miles). It seems to be in excellent condition.
The only issue that I'm aware of is a bulge in the tank, maybe approximately 10 cm * 4 cm.
I will consider if I could find some fix to the problem.
Hope to find some interestingreading here, and also to be able to contribute in some way..

Welcome.

Never having had a tank bulge (depressions yes, but no extrusions), I am afraid that I'm useless.

Welcome.

Thank you!


I suspect that depressions can be more useful in the long run than bulkes in gas tanks. :wink2:
Buying another gas tank may be to expensive for my taste. I may fix the bulge by having a professional fix it, but suspect that I'll go for an even cheaper option.
That could be buying some tank cover, that would also hiode the bulge. One example is here: https://japan.webike.net/products/21226952.html .
I have seen others, made from plastic, in multiple colors. Unfortunately I haven't been able to dig up the webpage(s) later..
Have a nice day.

That is strange. Can you post a photo of it?
I can maybe take one later. According to the information I got, some previous owner dropped something on the tank, leaving the dent. I found this item https://japan.webike.net/products/21226952.html which might provide a cheap option for covering the damage.
Still, I'm looking for alternatives.. Think I saw some plastic tank covers, but haven't able to find the actual webpage later.

Thanks. These are nice. The dent in my thank is close to the seat, meaning that the tank cover that seems to be part of the kits above,
would not cover it. This part probably does https://japan.webike.net/products/21226952.html , but I'm also trying to find other possibilities.
I have seen some that cover most of the tank, and were multi-colored, but unfortunately didn't store the webpage, and have not been able to find it again.

You could get a Bagster brand tank cover in whatever color scheme your bike has.


You could order a new tank. I know here in the US they are quite inexpensive.


Or you could look for a good one from the breakers. There are many on Ebay, often priced higher than a new one from Honda.
