    There should only be viton seals on the fuel line seals and possibly the brake piston seals.

    HF is serious shit, I've come across it in 2 applications:

    1. oil refinery - the Cat Cracker - used to crack oils - you had to take off all your regular clothes, put on paper pants, a boilersuit, full acid suit, goggles, face visor, hood, wellies, gauntlets that you had to test in a water bath 1st - then you could go on the plant.

    2. Stuart Crystal in the Black Country - used to etch crystal and glass - the lads just carried open buckets round and poured it into containers!

    If you get HF on your skin it can go into your bones and fuck you up. We were provided with special gel to smear on if we got splashed.

    I wouldn't worry if I were you....

    So highly unlikely there is any risk at all to me then. No damage at all to fuel system or to brake calipers, not even and burn marks (you wont believe how the tank has cleaned up).

    I had looked on Wiki as soon as SB mentioned it, but from reading that it didn't make any practical correlation to working on a fire damaged bike.

    So what should you look out for? What are the symptoms of being affected?

    Just echoing this sentiment, Jon. Hydrofluoric Acid is seriously nasty stuff. Wear gloves on top of your gloves and then put some gloves on...exposure to an area the size of the palm of your hand is usually fatal some weeks down the line due to multiple organ failure.

    Where would the Hydroflouric Acid and other harmful substances be coming from; the battery? Not surely the bike plastics and wiring etc??
