Many people get a little lazy over time regarding motorcycle maintenance. Periodic maintenance is extremely important to keep your bike in good working condition. Keeping your bike up to its high point consistently allows you to go safely, quickly and comfortably. Many basic maintenance tasks are easy enough for you to do.
1) CHECK THE STATUS OF YOUR TYRES FREQUENTLY
You must adjust the tires if you note a change in the way the bicycle behaves, as stipulated by local legislation, or at the least when the surface is worn down to the wear bars. Under-inflated tires are going to overheat and may collapse. Over-inflated tires can give you less than maximum strength.
- Ideally, test the tire pressure before and after each ride. Commit to a daily routine check-up.
- Replace tyres when there is a sudden loss of air.
- Replace when there is nearly 1.59 mm (2/32 “or 0.063 inches) of foot left around the tire. Don’t hesitate until the tires become flat.
- Please switch the tyres of the packages. All tyres are prone to the same pressure and rigors of road riding.
2) CHECKING AND REFILLING YOUR MOTOR OIL
This lubricates the gears and engines; any switch to engine oil can cause damage to your motorbike. The owner’s manual should indicate how often the oil has to be adjusted, and this routine should be observed.
- Search for any potential leakage of fuel. Carbon particles thicken the fuel, producing a pull in the engine’s movement.
- Avoid running on dirty oil. This increases fuel consumption and reduces engine life dramatically.
3) KEEPING THE AIR FILTER CLEAN AT ALL TIMES
In particular, in a very short time, dusty conditions will block the filter.
- Change the air filter at the recommended intervals; increase the frequency of cleaning is especially dusty.
4) ADJUST THE CLUTCH PROPERLY AS NEEDED
The right amount of play should be available.
- Do not tighten your clutch too much – it can slip without noticing if the clutch is too close, fuel consumption also rises.
- Ensure that your clutch is correctly calibrated.
5) REGULARLY SERVICE YOUR ENGINE
Change it to keep the engine running like a clockwork and reduce fuel consumption. Wash and ensure valve clearance. Clean carburetor. Clean out the carburetor, you are driving for every 1500 km.
- Reinstall the spark plugs and inspect the distance for an old/antiquarian two-hour cycle every 750 kilometers (450 miles) and a four-hour bike every 1,500 kilometres (900 miles). As defined in the owner’s manual (or if a problem is suspected), spark plugs should be modified. The right grade and type of spark plug are critically important to use.
- Keep the shock clean and replace it if it’s damaged immediately.
6) RETAINING YOUR TRAMISSION
It may be fried due to excess heat or wear out if your bike chain is not lubricated. The combined wear of all the individual joints causes the chain to lose and the sprockets to fall. It can be very risky.
- Provide routine lubrication, washing, and configuration.
- To clean the chain using paraffin.
- To remove the dirt in the chain, wear a piece of cloth and soft comb. Do not use water to clean the chains, because the chains can rust.
- Wash the chain with a fresh, dry tissue after thoroughly washing the dirt.
- To lubricate the cord and the string, use your older engine oil.
- Ensure the right stress and free play of your bike chain.
7) REGULARLY CLEANING YOUR MOTORBIKE
It will not only look nice, but it will also lead to maintenance if it stays clean of dirt (and salt in winter). It is also easier to notice bolts and nuts that are missing or loose. Using plastic sheets to cover the ignition switch, the ignition bob, and silencer until you begin to wash your motorcycle.
- You can wash your bike using a microfiber cloth.
- Do not expose your bike to sunlight; try parking your bike in the shade.
8) PROTECT THE BATTERY OF YOUR MOTORBIKE
Perform regular maintenance to ensure a long battery life without problems.
- Search for any battery leakages.
- If the motorcycle is not used for a long time, keep the battery fully charged.
- Top up the battery with distilled water, whenever required.
9) MAINTAINING YOUR MOTORBIKE BRAKES
Check the brakes properly by gripping from the wheel. It can be too risky to crack if it’s too close or loose.
- Tighten brakes as required and according to your style.
- When noise is roaring, remove the brake pads of your bike in the front; this might also be due to a lack of fuel.
- Replace all brake fuel in front and rear with the required requirement (DOT 3/4/5).
10) CHECKING THE FORK AND FORK OIL OF YOUR MOTORBIKE
Replace the fork oil for a motorcycle, once in every twelve thousand kilometres.
- In the event of rust or injury, check forks and spring.
- Change your fork according to your convenience and comfort.
11) CHECKING YOUR SPROCKETS MOTORBIKE
If required, replace them. The usual limit for sprocket wear is 40,000 kilometers.
- Simultaneously, change the moving and operating pigments, and the string. Merely one element should not be changed.
