I have the sickness, just bought another Buell. First one was a 2006 XB12X
This one is a 2003 XB9S and has been sitting awhile and does not start.
The fuel pump is dead. I have bought all the parts to rebuild but my problem is inside the tank.
While cleaning I notice a blackish coating peeling away form the tank sides.
Has anyone ever come across this and how did you remove (clean) it?. I have attached pictures of the pump and the coating.
