Commonly used motorcycle cleaning tools
Before the start of motorcycle cleaning, to prepare cleaning tools, many friends may just take a piece of cloth to wipe the surface, but this is not comprehensive, can only be a simple cleaning, and can not be regarded as their own car to do a good maintenance clean, here for you to list some commonly used tools.
For example, feather duster, pump, washing basin, size brush, copper wire brush, scraper, scraper, fine cotton yarn, washing gasoline, detergent, sandpaper, coarse emery cloth, yarn, lubricating oil and grease and disassembly tools.
Notes for cleaning motorcycle
1. The car body and walking parts are prone to dirt, dust and other dirt. When cleaning is often washed with water while wiping with a cloth, and the iron side car after washing is not easy to dry, if long-term water washing, the bottom of the car and the trunk of the concave easy water corrosion.
So in the cleaning, should be parked on the slope of the motorcycle, let the mud from the front of the bottom of the car out of the hole, to avoid water. After rinsing, dry immediately with a cloth to keep the spokes of the wheel ring and the interior of the car dry.
2. The joint of the brake drum and the drum cover is prone to water seepage (the brake disc of disc braking is more likely to splash water). Because the brake drum of general motorcycle front, rear wheel does not have waterproof device, when washing the wheel with water, water will flow directly to the brake shoe, causing brake slip, even brake failure.
Therefore, after each wheel cleaning, should be low gear, repeatedly tap (grip) brake pedal (handle), use the heat generated between the brake friction pair will dry the water, until the brake efficiency recovery.
3. The carburetor is prone to water failure. When washing a vehicle with water, water droplets flow from the air filter into the carburetor. When started, the non-burning water is trapped in the cylinder and on the spark plug electrode, making it difficult to start.
When the spark plug electrode is short-circuited after the high voltage is generated, the high voltage coil becomes the load, which is easily destroyed by the high voltage. Therefore, when washing the vehicle, the application of plastic paper air filter, carburetor wrapped tightly, to avoid sand and water drilling into the cylinder.
4. Since the motorcycle engine is covered by inorganic cover and exposed, water will be sprayed on the spark plug seat hole on the cylinder cover and other lines during flushing, resulting in its power channling, short circuit, resulting in poor engine work or not easy to start, and in serious cases will cause a large number of battery discharge.
So after cleaning the application of dry cloth to dry the spark plug seat hole, and all kinds of lines are sprinkled on the water, can start.
The vast majority of friends also need to pay attention to is, wipe the ignition switch key eye, odometer and all kinds of lights on the water, otherwise will also produce certain trouble.
Tips for cleaning motorcycles
1. Clean surface
The cleaning method has duster, wipe, blunt, wash, blow and so on. Sometimes some surface decoration should also be surface polishing (such as plexiglass), painting, electroplating and other processes
Surface cleaning is generally combined with the technical maintenance of the vehicle. In the general inspection, the motorcycle should be according to the appearance of dirt degree of the vehicle brush or wash dry; If found that there is gasoline or lubricating oil leakage of the part, the application of cotton dipped in detergent gasoline wipe, such as in the wipe there is still oil leakage, should be timely maintenance.
In daily routine maintenance, the motorcycle assembly should be washed dirty parts, after washing the motorcycle to avoid strong exposure. Vehicle spray paint appearance in the cleaning, should be washed after wiping, in case of dust scratch table paint. It is best to polish the paint surface with car wax at intervals to protect the paint.
In the process of rinsing with clean water, be careful not to let the water flow to the ignition coil terminal, main switch, generator and regulator.
2. Battery cleaning
Remove the battery from the car (first remove the iron pole), clean the dirty surface with cotton yarn, remove the connection screw, rinse the battery surface with warm water, and then use a scraper to scrape the new stubble at the connection screw of the two electrode terminal posts to ensure good lead contact. Finally, grease the electrode terminal to prevent corrosion.
Attention, with the overflow pipe battery, the application of the pump gently blowing; Wipe the battery of cotton yarn, not before washing, can not be used to wipe other parts, to prevent acid corrosion.
3. Clean the carburetor
Remove carburetor assembly from vehicle and clean appearance; The carburetor is disassembled one by one. The carburetor is cleaned individually with washing gasoline, and all oil passages and air passages are blown through with compressed air. In disassembly and disassembly, pay attention to do not touch the upper and lower body joint surface, float arm, float arm shaft seat and other parts.
4. Cleaning spark plugs
After the spark plug has been working for some time, the electrode will be ablated or covered with oil and carbon. When cleaning the spark plug with more carbon, the spark plug should be soaked in washing gasoline for 3 ~ 4h to make the carbon soft, and then removed with a scraper. Finally dip in with the brush gasoline brush clean and dry can.
It is not correct for someone to remove carbon by fire or burning. Because that would damage the spark plug locally by heat. It should be noted that the highest working temperature in the combustion chamber of spark plug is up to 2000 ~ 3000℃ and the pressure is up to 686kpa. Such working conditions are not enough to remove the carbon deposit, nor is fire roasting or burning natural.
Pay attention to the spark plug after soaking when scrubbing, do not use wire brush. Because once the brush wire is broken and retained, it will cause a short circuit of the electrode.
Some maintenance departments in order to make the engine maintenance after the appearance of beautiful, specially in the engine appearance brush coating silver powder paint. It should be noted that the silver powder paint (conductor) should never be applied to the spark plug insulator, in case it is short-circuited to earth and the spark plug does not work properly.
5. Transmission cleaning
Transmission cleaning is mainly to change the oil. Start the engine and run for a few minutes before changing the oil, then shut down. Loosen the oil plug to drain the dirty oil, then tighten the oil plug; Wipe the transmission oil port, from the oil port to add the specified grade and capacity of lubricating oil. The lubricating oil must be replaced after the first driving of the new car at 1000km, and then according to the instructions.
6. Chain cleaning
When cleaning the chain, the chain can be removed, soaked in gasoline for 1 ~ 2h, and then scrub clean; Lubricate the whole chain with a semi-thick mixture of grease and oil before installation. The chain can also be placed in a container with the above mixed liquid mixed with a little molybdenum disulfide powder, boil for about 20 minutes, lubrication effect is better than the method mentioned above.
7. Clean the air filter
Remove the air filter from the car, clean and dry the housing, and then draw out the filter center. Such as plastic filter, can be washed with washing gasoline, and then dry with compressed air; If the paper filter, should be replaced.
