Hi i have a 2000 busa.
It was sitting for about a year at a repairers and the tank rusted in that time. (They refused to take responsibility for it rusting).
That was a few years ago and now the tank wont open. The key goes in and does not turn.
Does anyone know how i can get it open without damaging it (tank and lock).
Thanks in advance for your help

I would try DeepCreep. Sea Foam product. Use something that dissolves corrosion. It's hard on all the metal but in this case, it's warranted.

If that doesn't work, drill, I guess.

First off, unbolt it. Last thing u want is that stuff in your fuel. I had similar situation. I resealed tank with some blue resealer stuff from Minnesota?

Hi Try ACF50, Its similar to WD40 but a military grade product. As with WD40 leave it to soak in a while and work on the lock gently with the key. Your patience will pay off.
