XT500 Tank Repair
on: November 16, 2019, 22:26

Hi All,

New to the forum. I've always wanted an XT500 and have spotted one for sale (1981 model). The tank has a dent so one of the first things I would do is have the tank repaired and resprayed. It is the silver and black colour scheme. Would any have an idea as to how much that would cost and a recommendation for someone to do that type of a job. Thanks for any assistance

Liam,there are dents…and dents. Some can be pulled out or even blown out by pressurising the tank with compressed air. I don't know how well connected you are with people in the car/m/cycle bodywork game but I would take the tank off and take it to a body repair shop for a quote. There will also be the cost of respraying the tank to consider…unless you do it yourself.Hopefully someone on here will chime in with a contact but don't hold your breath,unfortunately activity is minimal on here. Be lucky.

Hi Liam,


I have just been researching the same and found a guy called Andy.

You can reach him on 07968 260 225 his website: https://www.motorcycledentremoval.co.uk I can't vouch for him, as I haven't used his service as yet, but I have spoken to him and he seems very knowledgeable. Dented petrol tanks are his specialty after all..
