Motorcycle Gas Mileage

With insane gas prices, people are looking at motorcycle gas mileage. More people are considering motorcycles to reduce their gas costs. I've gotten over 50mpg on my 2004 Road King Custom, which has the five speed transmission. The new six speed will no doubt give you better mileage.

As you can see by the list below, Harley-Davidson motorcycles get great gas mileage ranging from around 53mpg for the big Screamin Eagle Ultra Classic and the Screamin Eagle DYNA, both with the 110 cubic inch engine to around 60mpg for the 883 Sportster.

If you're considering a motorcycle to lower your gas costs, keep in mind the type of riding your going to be doing. If you're thinking about an 883 Sportster to commute to and from work, remember the types of roads you'll be traveling on. The Sporster gets great gas mileage but I would not want to spend a lot of time on the highway with it. If you are going to be doing a lot of highway riding, I would consider something larger. Either way, you'll be saving money on gas and having fun doing it. Here is a mileage estimate list for Harley motorcycles.

How to Remove Rust From a Motorcycle Gas Tank

One of the benefits of being to able to work on motorcycles is that you can generally find them pretty cheap when work on them is required. Typically, a bike that needs work has been sitting for a while, usually with the tank empty. This means over time that rust has taken over, as was the case with a 1981 Honda CB650 that I had acquired. To say that this thing had rust in it was an understatement; it had chunks of rust. Luckily though, the tank had no pin hole leaks or anything and was completely solid. Now to the fun part! I will explain the process of removing rust from a motorcycle gas tank. As I stated, this was done on a 81′ CB650, so it’s tailored to that, but I’m sure it’ll work on most other bikes.

What you’ll need:

  • Acetone
  • Distilled water (it’s important that you only use distilled water)
  • Two stroke oil
  • A length of chain 4 to 6 feet long
  • Rags
  • Something to plug the fuel outlet (I used a small piece of hose a small rag and a piece of black tape)

IMPORTANT NOTE: ACETONE AND RUBBER DO NOT MIX! If you use rubber to seal the fuel output replace it every time you drain the acetone mix as the acetone will eat away at it.

At this point I’m going to assume that you have the gas tank off the bike and that it’s empty. Here is a step by step.

  1. Plug the fuel output and make sure it is sealed
  2. Fill the tank about ½ full of acetone and let it sit turning occasionally
  3. Wait overnight
  4. Shake the tank and empty the acetone/rust mixture into a bucket
  5. Fill the tank ½ way again with acetone and this time drop the chain in
  6. Shake the tank often and vigorously. The chain will knock remaining rust off
  7. Empty the acetone/rust mixture into the bucket
  8. Fill the tank up with distilled water and empty it out. Do this until only fairly clean water comes out and no rust can be heard rattling around. I put a hairdryer in the fuel hole and dried it out immediately after
  9. Fill the tank about ¼ with two stroke oil and shake it around then empty it
  10. Please dispose of the acetone and other nasty chemicals properly

I highly suggest installing an inline fuel filter on the fuel line in between the tank and carburetor. It will filter out any small particles and keep them out of the fuel system. This system worked for me, my CB650 ran like a dream after cleaning the tank like this! The next step is to give the carb a good cleaning.


3 Steps to Clean Your Leather Motorcycle Jacket

Regularly cleaning a leather motorcycle jacket is an essential process to keep it looking its best. Leather suites, boots, trousers and jackets can cost literally thousands, so it is worth a little extra time and effort to help maintain the beautiful finish. A high-quality leather jacket can easily start to dry out and crack if the proper care isn’t provided. The actual process of cleaning and conditioning the motorcycle gear is quite easy. Plus, the jackets that are well-maintained are more supple which means they are more comfortable to wear and easier to put on and take off. An ideal time-frame to clean the leather motorcycle jacket is every 3 or 4 months.

What is involved in the cleaning process?

Initial cleaning

Before starting the cleaning process, you want to find a convenient place to hang your leathers. Use a coat hanger and make sure there is enough space to work. Start the cleaning process with a bowl of hot soapy water. Stay away from harsh detergents or washing up liquid, and instead use a mild soap similar to a shower gel. Give the jacket a good wipe down using a microfiber cloth or similar to make sure it is completely clean.

Leave to dry

Once the jacket is fully clean and all signs of dirt have been removed, leave it in an open area to air dry. Don’t use a tumble dryer, hair dryer or other heated appliance to speed things up. Heating leather based clothes can increase the risk of the material shrinking, splitting or cracking.

When the jacket is dry, you are ready to start on the conditioning step. It is always important to complete the initial cleaning to remove the dirt. If you go directly to conditioning, there is the risk of trapping the dirt which can lead to a quite atrocious look.

Apply conditioner

Apply a high quality leather conditioner that easily absorbs into the leather to make sure it does its job well and gives long-term protection. Massage the preferred conditioner all over the jacket using your hands or a dry cloth. Give the seams and stitching special attention because these areas are more at risk of cracking or rotting in the future. After a good coating is applied, leave the jacket overnight to dry. At first the leather material may feel a little greasy, but once the conditioner is fully absorbed, it should look wonderful.

Choosing the Right Quality Motorcycle Helmet

A motorcycle helmet is the most important individual protection gear that any biker should have. It provides safety to the rider by protecting the head from any sort of injuries in case of an accident. It is therefore necessary to choose the helmet that provides top notch safety. Here are a few points to consider while choosing a motorcycle helmet:

Choose a helmet that fits tightly around your head. The inner body of the helmet should clasp to your skin. The helmet should not be so tight that you are uncomfortable, either should it slide off. While buying, you should shake your head side by side and back and forth to see, if the helmet slides. A perfect fitted helmet should start right above the eyebrows and should stay firm on your head.

Select helmets that have strong straps that can be fastened properly. Loose fasteners or snap fasteners have the tendency to unsnap in an accident. You should wear the helmet fasten the straps and try to lift out the helmet. With this, you can perform the self test and get a bit of assurance that the straps are performing well.

The color choice should also be bright such as red, white, yellow etc. The reason for these choosing bright colors is that, they are easily visible to other riders on the road in daylight and night time. Dull colors go unnoticed as they blend in into the surroundings. Think about buying a helmet that is made of reflective material. This material reflects the light that falls upon it and makes it easier for other riders to notice. If reflective material is not available, try for helmets that have reflective tape attached to the back and sides.

The helmets that you choose should be free from any kind of flaws, loose padding, exposed metal or any kind of deformities. One of the most important aspects that one should keep in mind while buying any helmet is that, the helmet should meet up with the safety standards of the relevant nations or should be DOT or Snell approved. Buying from branded companies like Bell helmets, HJC helmets and Arai helmets can assure you of high quality.

Whether a novice or a pro biker is taken into consideration, for either of them it is necessary to choose the perfect helmet that ensures the riders safety.
