This is the tank of my two-year-old CVO breakout, I am currently waiting for a new tank from Harley to replace this tank. This will be the fourth tank fitted to my bike since new and each time I have had to wait months for the replacement tank to arrive currently I am being told that the replacement tank will arrive on the third week of April which means effectively I have waited over four months for a replacement. The first tank developed a smaller rust patch under the clear coating and was replaced after a three month wait, the second tank was full of rust on arrival and promptly blocked up both the fuel filter and damage the fuel pump. This was replaced under warranty with the third tank which can see in the picture, the rust and clearcoat flaking off started to happen within three weeks of sitting this tank and I do not hold much hope for the next one. I have suggested to the local dealer that they just paint all the tins black be done with it but it really is a great disappointment that having spent this much money on a CVO I cannot have the original paintwork I ordered. Other bikers cannot believe how bad this rust has gotten over a few weeks and there is obviously something wrong in the quality-control department of Harley-Davidson. Although this is a great bike to ride I am deeply disappointed in the quality-control and the way that Harley have responded. I have three other bikes one of which is over 20 years old from Harley Davidson and have never had a rust problem like this before. Do any of the riders have similar experiences and can you let me know how you finally resolved them.
