Motorcycle engine spontaneous combustion, the original is the problem here!
Release date:2023.09.21

Spontaneous combustion of motorcycles will become unrecognizable in an instant, and people are often caught off guard at this time. Even if the rescue is timely, the motorcycle's paint, cover plate, seat cushion, cable, etc. will be burned black and blue; If the rescue is not timely, in the blink of an eye, the whole car will be reduced to ashes, terrible to see. What is more unfortunate is that burning cars on the road brings great harm to personal safety. The main reason for the spontaneous combustion of the motorcycle is that the connectors and wires of the electrical appliances themselves catch fire, and the high temperature generated ignites flammable paint, leaking gasoline or flammable products. Therefore, electric leakage or fire jumping is the key, and reducing fuel leakage is particularly important.

1, high voltage ignition leakage fire.

When the engine is working, the temperature of the ignition coil is very high, so that the foreskin of the high-voltage ignition wire is softened, aged, cracked, and the ignition high-voltage electricity is easy to penetrate the foreskin (cracked) and the car body parts (iron). The flasher is in contact with the paint of the frame tank and the gasoline leaking from the carburetor, resulting in ignition and combustion. Spark plug cap due to high temperature also often have cracks, seal is not good, if there is oil dirt, stolen goods, it is easy to produce high voltage leakage fire, coupled with the cylinder head temperature is high, there are oil traces, the most easy to catch fire.

2, electrical appliances, switches, wire break fire

All electrical appliances, switches, and wires are as low as possible, but as long as there is a break, poor contact, and damage to the wire edge, there may be a jump in the iron. The common faults are: "broken skin" between the cable and the frame and the clamp due to vibration friction; Headlights, ignition switches and many other switch wires due to the steering device, the direction of the movement of friction, vibration, resulting in broken, poor contact, broken skin; The taillight and brake light wires are "broken" due to the impact and friction of the rear and fender. Lamp base installation due to vibration, connector damage and insulation loose, damage, etc. will be in the motorcycle driving or parking on their own and jump fire for a long time, produce high temperature, causing electrical appliances, switches, wire insulation (or foresk) damage, and then increase the jump range, expand the high temperature area, and finally lead to paint, leakage of gasoline, flammable materials and other contact and fire.

3, electrical failure short circuit

The common rear brake lamp fails due to the sintering of contacts, and is used once for a long time, resulting in a large current burning through the wire and melting insulation, causing a large area of leakage, high temperature caused by paint, oil leakage and other flammable materials on fire. The key measures to prevent the occurrence of faults such as leakage and jump fire are as follows:

(1) Often check ignition switches, batteries, starting relays, motors, fuses and other large current electrical terminals, wire connections, insulation, etc., to correct the unreliable situation in a timely manner. Do not use large capacity fuse or copper wire.

(2) Often check the moving parts, frame, fuel tank, carburetor, do points and other paint parts, oil leakage parts, flammable materials around the wire, plug, switch, clamp, etc., whether there is "broken skin", poor contact, timely correct the bad state of the possible iron.

(3) Regularly check whether the insulation cover of the main cable and the branch wire is damaged, add insulation tape in time, pay special attention to the wire clip should not have sharp and sharp raw edges, and the fixed tightening should be appropriate, not too tight, and damage the insulation cover.

(4) Regularly check whether the connectors (or connectors) of electrical appliances, switches, lamp holders, and brake lamp switches are loose or fall off; Whether the wire has crossed lines or broken skin phenomenon, timely repair and maintenance.

Second, the leakage of fuel, the leakage of gasoline is the most terrible combustible, to prevent fuel leakage is very important.

1. Oil tank leaks

The seal of the tank cap is very important, especially in high temperature climates, which can easily produce a large amount of gasoline vapor leakage, especially when the tank is full of oil.

Check whether there is leakage at the tank switch, replace the gasket, and tighten the tank switch or oil filter cup according to the specified torque.

2, carburetor oil leakage

When the oil inlet needle valve is not tightly closed, or the oil level of the float chamber of the oil burner is too high, in the state of vibration, it will cause the carburetor oil line to spill.

The carburetor float chamber gasket is broken, or the screw is loose, will cause the float chamber oil leakage.

In a high temperature climate, gasoline in the carburetor float chamber will also be gasified and leaked.

3, shut down abuse of acceleration pump caused by leakage

If the acceleration pump is abused in the shutdown state, a lot of gasoline is injected into the carburetor throat and intake pipe, and the gasoline is quickly vaporized and leaked out in high temperature climates.

The carburetor in the shutdown state and the gasoline in the throat after vaporization are leaked to the frame, cushion and other Spaces through the float chamber vent, air filter or hose joint (there is a state of leakage). If there is a jump fire in this area, it can immediately spontaneously ignite.

Third, the parking position is improper, should pay attention to the parking position of the motorcycle, if the "burning environment" is good, and there is a jump fire, the most prone to spontaneous combustion of the motorcycle.

1. High temperature climate

Hot summer, temporary parking on the side of the road, motorcycles exposed to the scorching sun, gasoline steam leakage more, if a place to take iron jump fire, it is "one point".

2. Airtight without ventilation

The motorcycle is parked in a closed and unventilated small room, especially in the boiler room, power distribution room, storage room, etc., if the internal temperature is too high, it will accelerate the volatilization of gasoline, and form "flammable gas" in a closed space. If an electrical appliance or wire appears to jump or other fire sources, it will burn undoubtedly. After the motorcycle is turned off, the ignition switch and the fuel tank switch are first cut off, and the motorcycle is parked in a ventilated and cool place, and then pushed into the "garage" after it is completely cooled.

Often clean motorcycles, commonly used electric meters to check whether electrical appliances, switches, wires have leakage phenomenon, strengthen gasoline (including gasoline steam) leakage inspection. Timely elimination of "leakage", "oil leakage", "leakage" and other faults, replacement of bad parts, to ensure the safety of the motorcycle circuit and oil circuit, away from the "fire source" or "combustion environment", the possibility of the motorcycle self-combustion vehicle will eliminate itself.
