It`s that time of the year, where bikers prepare to ride their motorcycles all-day, all-night. Spring is the most desired season of the year for the motorcycle enthusiasts. But, before you go out and grab the sunlight, there are few tips to follow in order to be 100% ready with your motorcycle.
1. Read the Manual
Doesn`t matter what motorcycle you own, there is a manual with maintenance that need to be followed and done. Don`t forget, you bike wasn`t used for a few months during the winter. Starts with the simple things like: change of the oil, change fluids, chain maintenance etc.
2. Battery Check
Like cars, motorcycles also have weak spots and that`s the battery. This is the biggest problem that you can have after a long winter. The best think you can do, is to check the fluid levels and try with a very slow charge (don`t push on this one). The second alternative, is to get a new battery.
3. Refuel The Gasoline Tank
There`re two sides of people opinions: one advice to empty the tank before the winter, and another who prefer to fill it up before the winter. In both cases, you have put a new gasoline in your motorcycle tank, before you go out riding.
4. Change the Oil
Leaving your bike during the winter with unchanged oil is a problem, if continue riding in now. It`s important here to change it immediately. Also, remove the spark plugs and check for gaps, this is helping you also to decide, to change them or not.
5. Brakes Check
Let`s say it this way: you can drive a little without changed oil, but you can`t without a brakes. Check the level of the brake fluids and the pads.
6. Clean It Perfectly
For sure, during the cold months your bike got a lot of dust on it. This is the time, to give your bike the desired look.
7. Buy an Extra Motorcycle Gear
Last, but not least is to check your motorcycle gears. If you need to get a new motorcycle helmets for example, go and take it, because security is also an important topic.
A lot of things to finish before you catch the first wind waves and sunlight of the spring. Spend your time, improving your bike.
