Motorbike Maintenance

From keeping your motorbike clean to keeping it up to check during the winter months; below are a few tips and tricks on keeping your motorcycle in its prime condition.

Things to always keep your eye on

There are lots of different things to keep your eye on but here's our list of key checks to make:

  • Battery
  • Oil
  • Tyres
  • Brakes
  • Chain
  • Fuel

All of these checks can be done in under 10 minutes and the difference can be huge!

Brakes

Letting your brake pads go down to the metal is a quick way to spending lots of money for something which could have been replaced and a much much cheaper price.

We go over brakes in more detail in our Performing an emergency stop article.

Regularly Cleaning

Regularly clean your bike, It keeps muck and dirt from setting on your bike and stops it from becoming hard and who doesn't always wants a clean bike?

Drive Chain

A key part yet often neglected by riders when checking their motorcycle, Incorrect tension on your chains can cause unnecessary sprocket and gearbox wear.

Look at your motorbikes' manual to see what the tension for your bike should be

Riding Your Motorbike in the Winter

Winter is a main time to keep your bike in shape. Punctures are more common in winter so be prepared in case this happens to you!

Tyres take time to warm up, and in winter this takes much longer. This can cause less traction, so watch out on bends!
