I do have a steam cleaner (or 2) so I'll give it a shot. Not sure how I will reach into all the compartments in the tank, but can't hurt to try right?

If steam doesn’t work you can still get a replacement reservoir for b3 I believe . I got a new one and it was worth the $$ just because not being able to replace the one in my urq has always pissed me off (having to look at the old one)

The one I have in the car was a replacement. With less than 10k miles on it, and it cracked. That's really why I'm looking at trying to clean an oem.

As for you Urq, I may know someone that has an incredibly clean one if it's the same as the CGT.

Yeah, that's what I meant about making some kind of lance to get into the nooks and crannies. See if you can get some copper tube that will fit over the outlet nozzle on your steamer and that should be flexible enough to get into the right place.
