Tip: How to Remove Rust From a Motorcycle Gas Tank

One of the advantages of being to ready to chip away at bikes is that you can by and large discover them quite shabby when take a shot at them is required. Commonly, a bicycle that requirements work has been sitting for some time, generally with the tank exhaust. This implies after some time that rust has assumed control, similar to the case with a 1981 Honda CB650 that I had gained. To state that this thing had rust in it was putting it mildly; it had lumps of rust. Fortunately however, the tank had no stick gap holes or anything and was totally strong. Presently to the fun part! I will clarify the way toward expelling rust from a cruiser gas tank. As I expressed, this was done on a 81' CB650, so it's custom fitted to that, yet I'm certain it'll chip away at most different bicycles.

What you'll require:


Refined water (it's vital that you just utilize refined water)

Two stroke oil

A length of affix 4 to 6 feet long


A comment the fuel outlet (I utilized a little bit of hose a little cloth and a bit of dark tape)

Critical NOTE: ACETONE AND RUBBER DO NOT MIX! On the off chance that you utilize elastic to seal the fuel yield supplant it each time you deplete the CH3)2CO blend as the CH3)2CO will destroy it.

Now I will accept that you have the gas tank off the bicycle and that it's unfilled. Here is a well ordered.

Fitting the fuel yield and ensure it is fixed

Fill the tank about ½ loaded with CH3)2CO and let it sit turning once in a while

Hold up overnight

Shake the tank and exhaust the CH3)2CO/rust blend into a basin

Fill the tank ½ route again with CH3)2CO and this time drop the chain in

Shake the tank frequently and energetically. The chain will thump staying rust off

Discharge the CH3)2CO/rust blend into the can

Top the tank off with refined water and discharge it out. Do this until the point that lone genuinely wipe water turns out and no rust can be heard rattling around. I put a hairdryer in the fuel gap and dried it out promptly after

Fill the tank about ¼ with two stroke oil and shake it around then discharge it

If you don't mind discard the CH3)2CO and other terrible chemicals legitimately

I profoundly propose introducing an inline fuel channel on the fuel line in the middle of the tank and carburetor. It will sift through any little particles and keep them out of the fuel framework. This framework worked for me, my CB650 pursued like a fantasy cleaning the tank this way! The following stage is to give the carb a decent cleaning.
