How to remove rust from plated parts in motorbikes

The plated parts of motorbikes and bicycles (chrome or zinc plated) will rust to varying degrees if they are worn and eroded by water and air. The following is a method of rust removal that does not corrode the plating and has good results.

Firstly, put ammonium acetate into an equal amount of water, dissolve it fully and then warm it up to about 70cC; use a soft cloth dipped in the solution to scrub the rusted parts until the rust spots disappear; then use the cloth to wipe away the residual solution, and the plated parts will be as bright as ever. Small parts can also be soaked in the solution for a while and then wiped dry after removal to achieve the same effect. Finally, wipe with a dry cloth with a little engine oil.


After the above treatment, the plated parts can not only regain their original lustre, but also remain unchanged for a long time. For parts that have rusted as a result of peeling plating, this method can also remove the rust spots, but without the characteristic lustre of the plated surface. Ammonium acetate is a white powdered crystal, available in chemical shops.

Removing old decals

During the refurbishment of a motorbike, some body decals often become old and hairy, but it is difficult to remove them. Here's one way to do it. Soak the decal in water for about 301min to make it wet, then dip a drafting rubber in a little washing powder solution and rub it on the decal, after a while the decal and some dirt will be rubbed into strips and fall off. Then just rinse the surface of the car with water.

One method of sealing the oil drum

At present, most motorbike users use plastic drums for petrol, which are moderately priced and convenient. However, the lid is often not sealed tightly enough and the petrol tends to evaporate, which is both wasteful and unsafe. My solution to this problem is to put a handy plastic bag over the mouth of the drum before putting the lid on, and then screw the lid on tightly. To check whether the seal is good, squeeze the plastic bucket by hand, if there is no sound of air leakage that means the bucket lid has been sealed tightly.


Cleaning of non-metallic parts

In the maintenance of motorbikes, there are often non-metallic parts that need to be cleaned. These parts should not be cleaned with paraffin, diesel, petrol or metal cleaners, as this will cause deterioration and failure. Should be based on the material of the parts to decide the cleaning method.

(1) rubber parts, the application of alcohol cleaning.

(2) foam parts, the application of washing powder or soapy water cleaning.

(3) Leather parts should not be washed with any cleaning solution, wipe clean with a cloth.

(4) paper parts can not be cleaned with water, the application of brush brush, or in the paraffin, diesel oil cleaning.

(5) clutch friction plate, brake shoe friction plate can not be cleaned with paraffin, diesel, alkali solution, the application of gasoline brushing.
