What year gas tanks are compatible

Postby hondavidson » Sun Sep 11, 2011 11:48 pm



I have a 1986 GL1200 Aspencade that has quite a bit of rust in it and have found a few online but I am getting different part numbers from Honda yet they are identical looking tanks. I looked at a couple from an 84 and an 85 aspebcade and can't tell the difference. Does anybody know if it will work and why the part # through Honda varies

It is a bear to change that tank, I recently tried a product called "rusteco" on a 1500 tank that had been sitting for 8 years, when the process was done, the inside of the tank looked like NEW metal. I found the information on another site, talked to two people that had tried it, decided to try it, and it was a piece of cake to clean that tank, one pint of rusteco, $125.00, and 6 gallons of distilled water, let sit for 7-8 days, siphon out the waterand rust and debris, vacuumed with shop vac, used the water that came out to fertilize the grass. The inside was so bad the fuel pump was completly stopped up internally.

you are seeing two parts numbers because the gas tank on the ltd and se-i are different than the tank for an aspencade=, interstate, or nekked wing

Thank you. Now I'm real confused because I have gotten a couple replies with one sayong 84-86 Aspencades are all same tank except the fuel injected model. I guess I will just make sure I get a tank from an 86 aspencade

aspencades ( interstates, and 1200 standard wings ) are not fuel injected only the ltd and se-i are fuel injected. if it is a 1200 and has carbs you can use the gas tank

Cool. Thank you. Tried cleaning rust out but not satisfied so going to go through the fun of replacing tank.
