I think the welds are OK but the internal tank coating appears not to be adhering properly to the welded areas and should have a rethink by Honda . I saw no evidence of the coating breaking down on the rest of the tank interior so I wouldn't blame the ethanol just yet . Eventually, it may run it's course over all the welded seams and that could put an end to the white residue.

Thing is, I expect the coating is a rust preventative so the exposed welds may be vulnerable to rust if the fuel level is left too low over extended periods like winter storage .

Contacting Honda corporate is useless so the best channel of communication is through your dealer provided he can give good enough info to his Honda service rep and the rep cares enough to follow through with corporate. Now, as you can imagine, if this problem affects every Fury and possibly other power sports vehicles, with the high cost of voluntary recalls, Honda will likely choose to ignore it since the filter and reservoir are designed to deal with moderate amounts of sediment. Also, Honda may be quietly addressing this issue with their service bulletin regarding the fuel filter upgrade kit to prevent clogging from an excessive accumulation of sediment . I would pursue this with my dealer but that is a two day trip minimum and the service manager has dropped the ball on previous simple requests for information that involve corporate .

Read some good things about Sea Foam dissolving sediments and other gunk.

Going to put that in once a month.

In the winter will fill the tank and put in fuel stabilizer

If the tank rusts it rusts.

I just ordered my fuel filter kit, I'll replace the filter while I'm disassembled for winter. Not looking forward to taking the rear wheel off, but oh well. It'll be easier with the new pipe design.

Tank Seam

Hear is a good shot (more light) of a good section of the tank seam. The white spots are the beginning of the breakdown of the inside 'protective' coating .

Most probably the hardest question you will ever have to answer Gar.

I didn't do my homework on this one (first time ) and neglected to order the rubber fuel joint and the green fuel joint retainer. When I got around to installing the kit I saw the error of my ways but forged ahead regardless thinking if it leaks I'll do it over . It doesn't leak (yet) even though I had it apart twice .

That said, both the service bulletin and shop manual clearly state that these old parts are to be replaced with new parts. I did not replace those two parts but I will next time in a year or two on my next inspection. On the other hand I must recommend that you replaced them since I always defer to the factory engineers' advice.

You are the master of your own destiny so you must steer your own course .
