OK, I took the back end off of the bike to recover the gas tank. I know a whole lot more about the bike now. Getting back on topic: Is it an issue if the inside of the gas tank has rust spots on it (vs dust, flakes, ...). Its been cleaned to death via the ball bearing Shake followed by soaking of Evapo-rust.
Thanks for your assistance in advance.

Rust in any form in your tank is not good and will only get worse you may want to look up electrolysis cleaning of a gas tank. And also there are some that coat the inside of the tank with a sealer made just for sealing out rust. Just my 2cents ------------------------Hal

tI had the same problem except mine was really bad. It would quit running all together. Took off tank and took it to a radiator shop and he cleaned it then coated the inside and I haven't had a problem since. About 75.00 to get it done. Good luck
