If the emblems are decals, you can heat them with a hair dryer and peel them off with a credit card. If they're metal, I would think it's easier to take off the metal emblems and have the original tank repainted, or at least touched up.

I was given a 2000 yamaha DT 125 and i was told needs regular fuel and 2t oil but i dont know the combination or how much mix to the gasoline please help


Are you sure this is a DT 125 as with this particular bike it is self mixing there should be a separate tank by the handle bars just under the front plastics opposite the water tank this is where you fill it with oil then just put gas in the gas tank and it will mix it self you do not have to do anything else do not put oil in the gas tank with the gas mixing would usally be dirt bikes or really old bikes only

I need to know the oil gas mixture for a 2000 yamaha pw90. I couldn't find my make and model so I just choose one so please ignor. It wouldn't let me continue without picking one.


If your model is the 90 then it should be a 4 stroke engine you put 10w30 or 10w40 oil in the engine and gas in the tank. Do not mix oil into the gas tank on a 4 stroker you will knacker the engine big time.

If however you have a definite 2 stroke model, you have 2 oil tanks one for the gearbox, and the plastic one under the seat for the engine.

Gearbox tank fill with 10w30 oil the plastic tank under the seat with 2 stroke oil. The 2 stroker mixes the oil and gas so you don't need to.

What's the simplest way to remove the gas tank logo's from my v-star 1100 custom?


Go to a auto paint supply store and buy the emblem remover spray costs about ten bucks and will scrape off with plastic squeegee you can buy one four a buck at the same place and if you don't know of any paint stores look in the yellow pages of the phone book under paint and look for auto paint retail store. You can also use a hair dryer and a single edge razor blade heat the emblem up with the hair dryer and carefully get blade under the emblem then pull on the tip and keep a steady slow pull on the emblem and use the blade to help lift it up. Then you can clean the glue off with gasoline or super Clean. Be sure you have the gas cap on and a wet rag around the tank lid to prevent a spark from hair dryer igniting the gas. If you need more assistance let me know please rate and thank you for using fixya.

Your oil pan where you normally drain the oil when changing it IS the crankcase. I would also drain any gas from the fuel tank(s) and put fresh gas in it, and you will probably need a new battery.

Paint protection


It sounds as if you are willing to do the right thing and get it coated or painted, right? What you need is not necessarily a clearcoat, but a better paint. Unless you use urethane paint, like they use on today's bikes, gas will dull or melt your tank paint. I'm not saying you can soak the think in gas, but you can spill fuel all over it, and just wipe it off without damage. Needs to be the top quality, urethane based auto paint. Costs more than the old DuPont Imron, but it's well worth it, looks great, and is gas-proof with or without the accompanying clear layer. I have restored many old bikes, and finally found out the hard way, not to scrimp on the tank paint! Good Luck. TT
