    I have a rebel 250. I bought a new locking gas cap for it, just fueled up and one of the little metal bolts that com out on the inside of the cap to lock it fell into the tank. Does anyone know how I can get it out or if it would hurt to leave it in there??? I think a magnet is out because...

    Due to the shape of the gas tank it seems that water has flowed toward the seat and rusted the tank on my 86 Rebel, such that there are twin pinhole leaks on or near the seams; one on the bottom right and the other on the bottom left of the tank.

    I'm way ahead of myself here but would like to ask: Has anyone removed the stock gas tank cap and/or welded a custom one on to the stock tank? and If I got a tank with dual gas caps, if it's vented, when filling do you have to remove both caps? This is what I'm looking at:

    I got the Tank from ebay... All I did was weld a bolt to the top of the frame by the neck, drilled a hole through the frame in front of the seat, and used stainless and rubber washers w/ stainless nylocks... http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/nn6/lunachopz/Tha%20Rebel/DSCF0313.jpg...
  9. Rebel Reading Room (FAQs)
    I bought a sportster-style tank before I actually bought my bike and it won't fit the frame. At least that's what I was told. Just wondering if anyone knows of any non-rebel tanks that will fit.
