Q Does a dented fuel tank mean MOT fail­ure?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

I am plan­ning to buy a sec­ond­hand Yamaha YBR125, but it has two dents in the fuel tank and I’m wor­ried that it won’t pass an MOT in that con­di­tion. Mi­hai, email

An­swered by A Chris Dabbs, MCN It doesn’t mat­ter if the tank is dented as long as it doesn’t leak or have sharp edges on it where the dents are – all it will af­fect is the price you are will­ing to pay. You can some­times push the dents out with com­pressed air or with a suit­able bar through the filler neck, but it’s eas­ier to get an­other tank on­line, as they start from about £30.
