Posted this already in another sub-forum, but was not sure if that was the right one. I will post it here as well
Thinking about purchasing a 2000 Suzuki Marauder. I am hoping this is the right sub-forum. I have a few questions.
#1 - There is a small crack in the gas tank, and it will need to be repaired or replaced. Has anyone had any luck with Cawell coatings for the tank? Thinking about making the seal with that stuff. I read somewhere that Bondo will not be a sufficient patch.
#2 - The owner says that the speedometer no longer works. I haven't had a chance to take it for a ride since we are in the dead winter up here in New England. Should I replace it with a Suzuki OEM replacement, or does any one suggest an aftermarket speedometer and where to find it.
#3 - can I use this thread to ask any additional questions about this bike, or is this forum active Enough where it would be better to crest a new thread. I will keep the forum update with my progress here.
#4 - If I already have tank off, should I just paint the whole thing, and what color would you all suggest. I was actually thinking of painting it with truck bed liner. This will be a daily rider, and am not looking for a show bike. Want something practical and unique.
