There are only two ways I can think of to remove the dent. One is to put a certain amount of water in the tank (off the bike, of course), and freeze it. I don't know what that "certain amount" is, though. If you put too much water in it, it will split seams and such, so proceed at your own risk. A second method is to heat the area up with a blow dryer, ...
Either it's in there or it isn't. If you've taken the head off, you should see the top of the piston and know if it is there or not. You don't want to refine the thing without knowing if it is there or not. If it is in the cylinder it could rub on the side of the cylinder wall and cause damage. Scoring of the wall and damage to the piston are the two big ...
If you're not increasing the load on the engine then mileage(fuel-efficiency) remains unaffected. Primary source of electrical energy on Honda CD100SS is the magneto, an alternator that cuts magnetic flux from permanent magnets. This alternator generates AC following the principle of Electromagnetic Induction A battery is used as the source of DC. Battery ...
Maybe you're flooding the engine by hitting the gas pedal when it's off. Don't do that. If you're low on gas and you want to start it. You might find a chain of commands online for how to prime it. In a Honda and some other 90's vehicles, slowly, it's ignition on, ignition off x 3, pump gas pedal, off. Start.
If the fuel is less than about a month old, you're probably still ok with just pouring in a bunch of stabilizer and warming up the bike to get it well mixed. If it's a couple months old, you probably want to follow @Paulster2's advice and drain the tank.
I have a CBR600 F4 - which is essentially the same engine but with carburettors instead of injection. On cold start, just a small amount of choke adjustment will cause high revs (i.e 3000+) versus sitting at 1500-2000. As I have a manual choke, I'll warm it up at 1800-2000 RPM and then go easy riding it until temp gauge comes into the zone. Factory idle for ...
The last vehicle in the USA to use a carb was the Susuki Jimmy in 1993. Your air filter element is bonded together with petro-chemical adhesives, and a lot of filters have a petro-chemical treatment to enhance thier performance. Soaking the filter in petrol can only be detrimental to the filter. Your best bet is to change the filter to avoid any possibility ...
If it was just a normal paper filter it is fine. If it is a re-usable washable filter then then I would suggest a wash and oiling procedure according to the manufacturer instructions.
I've noticed in Australia at least, when a bike gets a bent frame from an accident, it usually turns into a statutory write off. Meaning, the insurance company must pay the policy out, and the bike is never allowed to be ridden on the road again, not matter what repairs are done. Probably a rule that came in from back yard operators doing dodgy fix ups on ...
Drain the fuel in the tank. Then fill it back up with gas which has stabilizer in it. Once this is accomplished, get the bike started and let it run until fully warmed up. This will ensure all of the old gas has been purged. After this, you should be good until spring.
This is a (rather annoying, imho) characteristic with this particular bike. It doesn't happen with "all bikes", although some may be slightly higher when turning the engine on after a cold night. The Honda CBR 600 F4i, particularly in cold weather, tends to rev it's nuts off for the first few minutes (it's the automatic choke) until it warms up and calms ...
