Never heard of this. chances are you will find a weak spot in the tank and blow through it. To me this sounds like a very dangerous endeavor.

Which way turns the gas on


The tap bit that fits into yr fingers when turning it OFF and ON, should have a longer pointier end and a shorter blunt or more rounded end to it. With the Pointier end "DOWN" or at "6 o'clock" = petrol is ON and bike will run. With the Pointier end "up" or at "12 o'clock" = petrol is now reserve (1 to 3 litres left in tank, depends on the bike make etc) about 3.5 Litres on a VStar1100. With the Pointier end "VERTICAL" or at "9 o'clock" = petrol is OFF and bike will not run, petrol to motor is blocked.

My 2002 Suzuki fell over and the handle bar made a significant dent in the tank. Is it possible to pop it out somehow?


First dont believe anyone who says you can blow it out with air.
It willl need a talented panel repairer, he will know a number of options to pull the dent.
It will involve heat and spot welding pulling lugs, so the tank will need cleaning first to remove fuel vapour. And will require repainting following repair.

CPI Aragon 50CC ran out of oil, replinished then re-started scooter then stopped, so topped up petrol but now will not start at all. Any ideas please ?


Hi, Aargreene you may have squeaked your top end this is commonly known as "HEAT SEIZE" the piston heats up expands and becomes extremely tight in the cylinder bore and usually occurs mainly on 2 cycle engines right after a fresh top end rebuild, but it can also happen to brand new motorcycles, these are rare instances due to better quality control and education. Overheating failures that cause pistons to seize are many and each one should be carefully diagnosed to prevent future repeat offenders and the usual suspects are:
1. Loose fasteners causing intake or base gaskets to leak or crankshaft seal failure caused by age, overheating, or walking.
2. Improper assembly of reed valve gaskets.
3. Improper oil/fuel premix ratio.
4. Broken, pinched, or cracked fuel line.
5. Carburetor fuel passages clogged or restricted from stale fuel varnish, ethanol sludge, dirt, rust, or fuel level in float bowl too low.
6. Main jet size too small.
7. Air filter improperly installed, missing or not sealing.
8. Faulty or improperly adjusted oil pump and or cable.
9. Failure to bleed oil pump after running oil tank dry, rebuild of pump or replacement
10. Among the causes of lack of cylinder, lubrication is clogging of lubricator by dirt or waste, obstruction in oil pipes/lines, leaky check valves, leaky pump packing, broken oil pipe/line, oil too cold to feed.
11. Wrong type of oil used in premix or oil tank
12. Improper spark plug heat range (too hot) and or gap.
13. Ignition timing retarded, faulty CDI.
14. Excessive engine load, brakes dragging, clutch slipping, transmission lubricant level too low or viscosity to high.
15. Engine coolant level too low, too old, or improper mixture ratio.
16. Engine coolant pump failure, damage, or passages restricted.
17. Radiator clogged, fins damaged, or faulty cap.
18. Failure to follow proper break in procedures.

I Have A Dent On The Fuel Tank ,Suggest Me How i Can Remove Such Dent in Mumbai's which Service Center. Also My Engine's Paint is Peeling Off.


Hi
Insert a new or deflated inner tube inside the tank behind the dent & inflate. This will not work if there is a crease
If creased its easiest to fill & repaint it
Suction cups can pull out shallow dents
Otherwise braise a rod onto deepest part of dent & pull, cut off rod, smooth & repaint

Engine paint can be removed by painting Nitromores or similar stripper on then scrape of & be sure to rinse well
Bead-blasting is the best way but you have to remove the engine

I cant recommend a service centre in Mumbai as I haven't been there for years, I live in London UK

Once upon a time we used to pop them out with compressed air. Be sure to close the fuel valve and empty the tank if you try this. Likewise air out the fumes and don't smoke.
Or
Fill it with Bondo. Don't drill holes to try to pull out the dent, then you have holes in the tank.

A small dent in the fuel tank


Hello,
Depending on the size of the dent, it is possible to remove it by a couple of ways.
One way it can be done is with a suction dent puller. It is usually used on cars to remove hail damage and door dings. Some auto parts stores carry them in stock.
Another way is to use an air compressor to "blow out" the dent. You will need to drain the fuel first, then close the supply petcock once the tank is empty. If possible, remove the petcock and seal the opening. Too much air pressure can blow out the diaphram in the petcock. You can pressurize the tank with the petcock installed, just be very careful.
Then seal off the filler opening using a heavy rag wrapped around the air nozzle. Be sure the compressor pressure is around 50-60 psi and work your way up to 100-120 psi.
This method is crude, but will work most of the time.
Hope this helps
