Default Fuel Tank Leaking

Does anyone have problem on their fuel tank leaking or it just me?
I've change 2 fuel tanks and both leak at almost the same spot at the rear mounting point (the one facing the engine), the line that join the pieces of the tank. I can't melt the thing with my solder since it is at the screw mounting position, so i did add some silicone glue, but still leak after some run.

Is there an update optional fuel tank out there by some other hopup company?

the leakage possibly caused by the round edge of the upper deck. simply file that point to make it flat for more clearance for the fuel tank.

Check your new tank for leaks before installation, if it leaks send it in I will send you a new tank.

Nizee - I had the same problem. I cleaned it up, applied a little shoegoo, and then worked it into the little crack with a warm ( not hot ) soldering iron.

I just plugged the soldering iron in long enough so it would barely melt plastic.

Plug the pressure line with a short piece of fuel tubing and a screw, and blow into the other line while the tank is in a bowl of water just to check for little leaks. ( hold the lib shut too, btw! ) If it leaks, you'll see bubbles.

Yep...

Saw it and shocked it with this.... Isn't like the old MT12 who was the same RS12 but with a longer rod. This engine for sure will turn a little less rpms but with enough grunt and torque to light and blister tires.

Probably our HK spy can give us more info about this.

Robbie: Have more info about this?

Ouch................... 34,000yen=$305.097us.... Ouch

"FXConverter - 164 Currency Converter Results
Wednesday, October 1, 2003
34,000 Japanese Yen = 305.097 US Dollar
34,000 US Dollar (USD) = 3,788,960 Japanese Yen (JPY)

Median price = 0.008969 / 0.008973 (bid/ask)
Minimum price = 0.008917 / 0.008923
Maximum price = 0.009080 / 0.009086"

For over 3 bills, I will definitely go for either Vmax or Rody V12!

does it make sense to all of you guys??
