How Well Ultrasonic Carb Cleaners Work

What I’m working on today is to show how to clean up all the hardware from the CFD 50. Now, I saved all that for last because it is not much fun for cleaning up bolts. I remembered I had that little ultrasonic cleaner that I haven’t used in a while so I’m gonna run all that stuff through this ultrasonic carb cleaner and see how it turns out.

I really haven’t used this ultrasonic cleaner that much so I can’t give a whole lot of feedback on it. I’ve got it heated up to 53 degrees Celsius. It’s full of degreaser in the tank. The degreaser I’m using is called safe to clean.

I know some of you guys are probably wondering how I organized all the hardware off this bike. I was pulling it off and just dropped it into ziplock bags that were labeled. I’ve got them marked fork from brakes flywheel side. The engine subframe air box intake manifold miscellaneous plastics list goes on and on.  So just a simple straightforward way of keeping track of the hardware. The first batch is gonna be the dirtiest set of hardware. Just take a look here, and I’m thinking it’s gonna be rear brakes. This stuff is looking kind of nasty. I wish I had a little basket to drop the stuff into it before I put it into the cleaner. I don’t, so it’s just gonna have to go straight into the degreaser before I drop it in though. Let’s take a closer look at this stuff and see how dirty it is before I start cleaning it.

How to Use Ultrasonic Cleaner for Carb Cleaning

how to clean carbI put all dirty carb parts into the tank for clean. I’m just gonna set this thing for five minutes. The five minutes is up and I’m excited to see how this stuff turned out. That’s pretty impressive stuff and actually looks really good. The cleaned carb parts definitely exceeded my expectations.

Now, the time for batch number two the stuff in the miscellaneous bag and it is pretty disgusting as well. I’m gonna drop all this in an ultrasonic cleaner and let it do its work. I am really happy with how this set of parts turned out as well. I’ll be checking back in a minute. Once I have all this Hardware cleaned up. I’ve got all the hardware cleaned up and this stuff turned out really good
pretty stoked with the job that the ultrasonic cleaner did. You will not find a speck of dirt on this stuff.

I was digging around through the bins that this bike came with. I found a bunch more hardware and the exhaust valve parts. I want to try running these exhaust spell pieces through the ultrasonic cleaner and see what the result is right now. They’re pretty caked in carbon buildup. I’m just gonna dump this whole part right into the cleaner here. Since these parts are pretty dirty, I’m gonna set it for ten minutes. It’s the moment of truth really really hoping these exhaust flaps cleaned up. They still got some carbon buildup on it, so I might need to give it a little bit of help and scrape some of this off and run it for another ten minutes. I guess it shouldn’t be surprising that the ultrasonic cleaner didn’t rip all this carbon off this stuff, as it is usually stuck on really good. After another ten minutes, this is what these parts are looking like. For the most part, everything looks pretty good but the exhaust valve flaps still have some carbon buildup left on them. I’m thinking this stuff is gonna have to be cleaned up by hand, so here is what I’m gonna do with these exhaust valve flaps.

Basically, ultrasonic cleaner for carb cleaning can deliver the really impressive result, as it does save much of manual work. During the cleaning process, workers can also do something else. If some parts really dirty, you can soak it in water rank for minutes for thorough cleaning. If you hate manual work on dirty carb cleaning, a portable ultrasonic carb cleaner is really must have one.
