Hi all,

New to the forums and new to owning an sv650. Bought a naked 2000 project and so far there's been lots to work on.

Noticed recently the gas tank was dripping fuel constantly out of the vent. Looked more into it and have read that the overflow drain port for the 1st gen curvy bikes get rusty and that it's nearly impossible to fix. Only way to fix is pretty much to get a new tank. So my question is, other than getting another used 1st gen sv650 tank, is there any other options?

Thanks!

Someone extremely talented could theoretically cut the tank open, repair the drain tube, and weld the tank back together.

But you'd probably save money buying a new tank. ;)
