tank: fuel plate bolt
Last year I was extremely frustrated with my '01 tt600. Replaced the fittings on the fuel pump (plastic ones snapped during maintenance... this also took three trips to the dealer, 1 hr drive each way), snapped off one of the fittings in the fuel plate and ended up replacing the fuel plate... Upon reinstallation, fuel sprayed everywhere. New plate didn't make a good seal. Try to remove it... and sheared off one of the mounting bolts on the tank. Fahhh!
Now that it's sat for a while and the gravel is almost all off the road, and I've chipped away all the ice from the bike...
Can I replace that bolt somehow? Drill it out and weld a new one in? Or am I looking at a new tank?
Also the inside is rusty, but it looks like surface and probably easily cleaned from what I see on here.
