So I had a blonde moment (sorry girls) yesterday, filling tank looked at gas pump, exit nozzle from hole, gas spewing all over my tank..... I then proceeded to shout F***.... Good thing station had those window cleaners and towels.... damn that sucked...

I do hope honda used some good stuff so it doesn't eat the paint....

Any suggestions what I should do, i know the clear is there for part of this reason and I don't want to be forced in re-painting her.

Yup, I always liked this excuse for that... From the Honda Fury Babes post:

Did it do any visable damage???? If not, clean with a wax and grease remover, dry it off and then rewax. Should be fine.

If you have any lifting from the gas, that is a completely different story. Gas can lift the clearcoat up off of the basecoat via vapor impregnating and evaporating up....and then your talking refinish! :mad:

I'm no expert, but I don't think there will be a problem since you washed it off so quickly. I'm pretty sure that the paint has to soak in gas, or be exposed to it on a regular basis before it gets eaten away.

Damn the expert answered, before I could. Now I really look stupid. :(

This is exactly what I'm afraid of... hence I ran to those windshield cleaners and started to squeegie my bike (i shoulda had someone take a pic) ppl were staring lol...

Painter, you may have a job coming since I just don't trust myself just yet...

Thanks steveo, i'm hoping the quick wash did the trick as that's what I hoped... I didn't see anything noticeable except for some scratches from the squeegie...

to RSS: I live in WNY when it's 90deg. for one day of the year... we have no car washes like that it's all automated with the workers in their houses with heaters and jackets on.... I need to move....

True...

You're a life saver... but where were those pics last night when I was in full riding gear, leather head to toe just trying to stay warm....
No worries mate, I'll try to get them running through your head faster from now on... :D Oh, next month we have a Catholic School Girl event where the women will be washing the bikes in school girl outfits, I'll make sure to take some pics of that for ya... ;)

you gonna let them touch your paint?
Lol... *gulp* yes... :rolleyes: Life is short, think watching the "school" girls wash the bike will help with that decision. Luckily, they're all women and have hopefully handled a big bike before ;)

I don't know those school girls are a little inexperienced... I would watch them very closely as they handle the goods.
