Nine maintenance tips to rejuvenate your off-road motorcycle
Most of the off-road motorcycles that were sent to the store for maintenance were because the owners did not carry out maintenance work on time. In most cases, the most basic maintenance that keeps the car running at its best is ignored. Therefore, the time that could have been used to drive a motorcycle and install cool accessories and parts was wasted while waiting for the car to be repaired. Regular maintenance can extend the life of off-road motorcycles. How can we extend the service life of motorcycles? Everything comes down to making sure your car gets the right routine preventive maintenance. There are a total of nine tips to get your motorcycle running at its best.
1. Change the oil frequently. This may be the most important preventive maintenance you can do. The oil is the blood of the engine. The oil can help internal components to lubricate, cool down, clean, seal, and rust, which minimizes friction. As time goes on, the oil will be contaminated with contaminants and moisture, and the effectiveness will be reduced. The oil can hold the top or bottom of the car.
2. Adjust or lubricate the chain. Lubricate the chain of your car to prevent it from rusting. A rusty chain will increase the difficulty of the engine driving the wheel, offsetting a large part of the engine horsepower. You should clean, maintain and adjust your car chain on schedule. Otherwise it will loosen over time and detach from the sprocket of the car. Cause unnecessary economic losses and personal safety hazards.
3. Check the size of the chain teeth. Check the sprocket to see if there is deformation or this broken sawtooth or other wear. You only need to pull it out from the back of the sprocket. If the gap is more than a quarter of a foot, replace the chain teeth.
4. Check the bearings and lubricate if necessary. The most important thing is that you need to lubricate every moving part of your car. Every year you need to give your swing arm bearing, steering and wheel lubrication once or twice, otherwise the bearing will get stuck and the slider and wheel will not drive.
5. Adjust the valve. The valve will tighten over time. If the valve is tightened, heat can cause the valve or piston to melt the cylinder wall and melt with each other. Therefore, adjust the valve regularly.
6. Keep the air filter clean. Just like you, your motorcycle needs fresh air to survive. Dirty air filters can cause the engine to absorb deposits, such as dirt. When these particles are caught in moving parts, the parts wear out or break prematurely. Therefore, it is necessary to clean the air filter, spray the oil filter, and then reinstall it. If you are playing with the desert, I suggest you install a sand control net!
7. Maintain the exhaust. Blocked pipes can make engine exhausting more difficult, which reduces power. This will also make the car difficult to start. Therefore, it is ensured that the pipe will not be clogged, rusted, oily, and the exhaust pipe packing is not damaged or leaked.
8. Pull the wire to lubricate. Rusty cables not only reduce the life of motorcycles, but also a significant safety hazard. Especially rusty brakes and throttle cables. Simply rust the cable regularly to prevent rust.
9. Clean your bike. Develop good habits and clean your motorcycle to prevent dirt from getting caught in moving parts. This is the simplest preventive maintenance that can detect some minor problems.
