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:
Distilled water (it’s important that you only use distilled water)
Two stroke oil
A length of chain 4 to 6 feet long
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.
Plug the fuel output and make sure it is sealed
Fill the tank about ½ full of acetone and let it sit turning occasionally
Shake the tank and empty the acetone/rust mixture into a bucket
Fill the tank ½ way again with acetone and this time drop the chain in
Shake the tank often and vigorously. The chain will knock remaining rust off
Empty the acetone/rust mixture into the bucket
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
Fill the tank about ¼ with two stroke oil and shake it around then empty it
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.
Many mini moto configurations will require you to remove the engine from the mini moto. This is why I have produced the following guide.
Firstly you will need to remove the mini moto's fairing.
Start with the seat fairing, unscrew the four seat screws and remove the seat. Unscrew the screw at the front end of the seat fairing and remove the petrol cap. The fairing can now be lifted from the mini moto. Replace the fuel tank petrol cap and remove the fuel tank by pulling the rubber tube of the nipple on the top of the carburettor. You may want to double the rubber fuel tube over and secure it in this position with a clothes peg. This is to stop fuel leaking out.
Remove the bottom fairing by unscrewing the holding bolts (two on each side), this frees the bottom fairing from the top. Unscrew the two bolts on the underside of the bottom fairing. The bottom fairing is now free. The top fairing is only now held by one last bolt located in between the handle bars at the front of the mini moto.
Once you have removed the fairing, you will need to take the chain off the front sprocket. To do this loosen the back wheel nuts and the tensioning bolts. The back wheel can now be manoeuvred toward the front sprocket losing the chain. When the chain is loose enough you can remove it from the front sprocket.
Remove the pull start from the engine by unscrewing the three holding screws. Once the pull start has been removed you will see the wire that comes from the stop switch. Unplug this.
The throttle cable can be removed from its fitting on the top of the carburettor. Pull the rubber seal up so that the locking nut can be unscrewed, the throttle can now be dropped from the carburettor along with the needle valve and spring.
The next step is to Remove the Exhaust. The exhaust is fixed to the mini motos frame by a bolt located just under the seat fairing toward the back of your mini moto. Undo this bolt with a spanner and an alan key. The exhaust is fixed to the underside of the engine by two bolts via a gasket. Remove the two bolts with an alan key making sure that you do not lose the gasket washer. The exhaust can now be slid out past the engine and removed form the mini moto.
The engine is free from its mechanical fittings, the engine then needs to be removed from the mini motos frame. The bolt at the top of the engine must be undone first using the alan key. The three screws located on the underside of the engine are the last fixings to be undone. The engine can now be completely removed from the mini moto.
Whether you forgot to turn off something electrical on your bike or you have a old battery that is struggling to hold a charge, you would not have enough juice to start your bike.
In this video I would show you how to remove your battery, charge or change it to a new one and also how to hardwire a trickle charger to your motorcycle for the winter period or to charge a flat battery.

Cleaning tools by electrolysis……….In this film I am getting rid of rust on some fine machine tools by putting them into a home made electrolytic bath powered by a battery charger.
This is a very simple set up to do at home, but do take care as both electricity and chemicals can be dangerous – so only do this if you are familiar with this sort of thing, and the potential hazards, including the washing soda!
My set up is very simple, I use a car battery charger and a sacrificial electrode on the positive clip – any old iron rod will do; then on the negative clip I put the piece of rusty metal that I want to clean – this is then put in a plastic bucket filled with water and washing soda. After about 20 minutes the tool should come out fairly clean and a bit of wire brushing will bring it up very well indeed.
In this film I clean up a milling hold down set that I picked up in my local scrap yard and it comes out really well.
This is a battery charger that will charge two batteries at the same time and cut off once the batteries are charged. We have been using it on some of our shop batteries and it works great!
