Hello everyone, So recently I bought intruder from 1988, it's in unbelievable shape, but there is some rust on chrome parts, just a little tiny bit around screws. It is really annoying to me. I never dealt with something like that before, so does anyone have any suggestions how should I deal with that? Thanks!

Quick Google search came up with this. http://m.wikihow.com/Remove-Rust-from-Chrome. I've had luck with WD 40 and Mothers chrome polish in the past on wheels

In the past, when I had a bike with chrome, I used naval jelly and or Simchrome (sp) polish on light rust with god success.

+1 Mothers or semichrome would be a good place to start

Rust is mostly around screws, tiny bit. Would it be easier to replace the screws ?

Honestly it's up to you. You can go buy some chrome polish and put some on a rag or buffer ball/wheel and go to work. Or buy new bolts. Myself, I would not want to start cranking on a bunch of bolts on a machine of its age if I didn't have to. You could start snapping them and create bigger issues than cosmetic.

Hell yea, I was gonna suggest that... I've used it in the past on some gnarly stuff and it does work... just dip it in some water and go to town... there's some sort of chemical reaction that happens that's a little over my head

You can also pour coke on it and use a sponge to clean it.

Hello people. Im having problem again... My fuel consumption is very high, I can do around 160km before reserve... It should be close to 200km, tried open road, city driving and its all around 160... sometimes 145... Was paying attention on my shifting and everything. No gas leaks, nothing. Is it possible that carbs are not working well ?

You need to check your carb mixture settings, sounds like you're running rich.

Definitely sounds like it I agree! But yesterday I did a bit of cruise into mountains and I did 180km before reserve, which makes things more interesting. Uphill, makes it even more difficult so I was expecting lower fuel range than usual. Every tank I filled up increases fuel range and that makes me even more confused. Bike was stored for years, so maybe it's fixing the problem itself... LOL
