Tip & How-To about Motorcycles
We all have at least one can of WD-40 lurking somewhere within our households. Great stuff for fixing almost anything in need of a shot of lubricant. What most people don't know is that WD-40 also works terrific as starting fluid when dealing with that hard to start lawn mower, car, or motorcycle. Just spray some in the carburetor intake and your engine will fire right up - even if it has been sitting for a long time and there's stale gasoline in the carburetor making it reluctant to start.
WD-40's combustible makeup not only helps hard to start engines run, but its light viscosity lubrication also helps to lubricate valve guides and piston rings that are lubrication starved from long periods of non-use.
As with any flammable material, common sense precautions are essential: don't smoke or use WD-40 near an open flame, and do not crank an engine over while spraying WD-40 into the carburetor inlet.
