Time to get intimate with your motorbike

Whether you ride a cruiser, a sports bike, or a dirt bike, one thing is certain: you must maintain it on a regular basis in order to keep it safe and function well.

So some of you will find it more convenient to bring the bike to the workshop (or have them pick it up) and have a perfectly working bike appear out of nowhere. There will be no headaches, no soiled hands, and no time spent.

Sounds ideal?


It might be frightening at first to open and adjust anything on a machine capable of reaching speeds of over 100mph on those wonderful curving roads. However, knowing how your bike works and what you need to do to keep it in good condition is essential for all riders. And it will also help you ride better.

The last thing you want is to get your bike back from a sloppy technician who forgot to tighten that one screw or used the wrong oil. Knowing the fundamentals will undoubtedly assist you in maintaining the greatest levels of safety.

There are several motorcycle repair costs associated with owning a motorcycle. However, doing regular maintenance at the intervals specified in your service manual will greatly reduce total repair expenses for your bike and enhance your riding experience.

When you first start riding, you may not know how much care your motorbike need. You may save money on motorbike repairs if you learn how to properly care for the parts.

Parts might be pricey, but here’s a hint if you own a Japanese brand. We normally get our components from Partzilla, which has shown to be the greatest site for ordering parts at the most affordable costs. They do sell original and OEM components. I would always recommend ordering basic maintenance components in advance (brake pads, oil filter, etc.) so you don’t have to wait for them to be sent when you need them. Because all part numbers are given in your repair manual, you can’t go wrong.

If you go through the hassle of servicing your motorcycle yourself, you may use the money you save towards more vital repairs.

Be well and ride safe!
