Just picked up '02 954

Hey all, just got a barely used 954, its got 1500 miles on it. Its sat for the last three years, so before I started it i wanted to go through it.



Plan is to change the brake fluid/ antifreeze / and go through the fuel system

Well this is where it gets hairy...or rusty....

Re: Just picked up '02 954

lol, don't know what happened there, couldn't add to the bottom of the post after hitting preview.

Anyway my question is does that look bad? I've been reading about the Kreem kit, but not sure to what degree other tanks have rusted.....

Any thoughts or direction is appreciated.

Re: Just picked up '02 954

Wow Just got back from the dealer. they want 3 hrs to do the Kreem kit(was just weighing my options) so that's close to 400.

They want 792 for a new tank, ready to go. paint/pad/graphics. Just drop the pump in and go.

Going to have to let that sit a minute.

Re: Just picked up '02 954

You don't have to be that handy to do the Kreem kit yourself, and like UL69 said, there are used tanks in silver out there also. Bike looks great on the outside from what we can see, glad to see you're keeping her warm with all those blankets. Have you tested the pump yet to make sure it works? Plug it into the harness and turn the key on for a second. Don't run it dry for more than a couple seconds though.

I think I'm going with try the kreem, while keeping an eye out for a used tank.

I was going to hook up a hose to the pump with fresh gas, just to clean out the inside..... is there anything else I should run through it? or just like a bottle of techron in the first tank?

thanks for the help

Re: Just picked up '02 954

Rinse the pump out and clean it up the best you can before running it. Instead of the Kreem try a product called POR 15. I had much better results with it, it was easier, cleaner, quicker and I think a little cheaper. As with most things the preparation is most important. Check the fuel pressure regulator also. If you search here there are all sorts of good info. G/L

Re: Just picked up '02 954

POR 15 is a good product also, for some reason I only think of them when my brain in car mode.

Re: Just picked up '02 954

something else you can do is to seal up the bottom of the tank and put in a mixture of molasses and water in the tank, let it sit for a while and then rinse it off, my father in law used to restore model T Fords and all rusty parts went into a tank of molasses for a couple of weeks then come out rust free.

good looking bike my 02 has over 54k on the clock and still runs and looks great, I recommend using the vinegar for a couple days then rinse out good and coat the tank and for the fuel pump just replace it there are a lot on ebay at a good price here is just one of many 02 03 CBR954RR CBR 954 RR CBR954 Fuel Gas Petrol Pump Assy 16700 MCJ 752 | eBay

Re: Just picked up '02 954

I've heard Coca Cola will eat through the rust also. I've also bee told to put nuts and washers in with some acetone, with the lid on and shake it up to loosen the rust up. Or if you can get clean wire brush in there first. As long as it isn't rusted through you should be able to save it with the pour15 stuff. My friend used it on his bike like 6 years ago and it's still perfect now.
