I think that the Caswell will peel off the inside of the plastic tanks eventually. there is no way to get the plastic rough enough to get a proper stick.

Yes, youíre probably right. I put about a pound of self tappers and shook it til my arms fell off and the inside looked pretty smooth when I looked inside with an inspection camera. I flushed it out and coated it anyway. Iím doubting it will do any good, but I already had the stuff, might as well use it.

I am new to this but since there is no EFI or Aluminum tank option for a GT 1000, what are other folks doing about it? The coating is obviously failing as mentioned above.
Found this article, Are these brackets and rubber bumpers offered by Ducati any good?

Aluminium tanks are available from Italy for about £2000. Not really an option!

Evan Wilcox also makes a really nice alloy tank...but cheap they are not.

It appears that if you donít let the tank swell to the point that it damages the paint then the tank will shrink back to size after being drained and aired out for a while . Mine does. Iím not sure how long it takes as I left mine open all winter, 4-5 months, and it was fitting the frame pretty well by the time I coated and reinstalled it. Maybe it would be cheaper to buy a second tank and coat both, then swap each time swelling is noticeable and let the other one shrink back to normal. It would still be cheaper than aftermarket.
