Did you recently purchase your first motorcycle? What’s one way to ensure your safety on the road? The benefits of a motorcycle with regular maintenance will not only prolong the life of your motorcycle, but also ensure your safety on the road.
According to an article at collisioncenters.wordpress.com, “Motorcycle Maintenance Tips”
- Keep your tires inflated properly. If you are riding on the open road with low tire pressure you’re taking a big risk. Low air pressure can affect everything from fuel mileage to handling. Make sure you check your air pressure before each ride.
- Check and replace brake fluid. Over time brake fluid can become less effective as it absorbs moisture. Replace your fluid every one to two years to ensure the brakes are preforming the way they are meant to. Don’t forget to check the brake pads as well!
- Check your oil. If you are heading out for a ride always check the oil beforehand. Make this a habit, top it off if need be. This will ensure that nothing disastrous will happen while you are on the open road.
- Make sure you keep the bearings greased. Most are covered these days but there is always a place on the majority of motorcycles that goes without protection. If you happen to find these on your motorcycle, make sure you consistently grease them for optimal performance.” To read the entire article click here.
