All motorcycle owners should be familiar with the replacement parts for their motorcycle.

Knowing the parts of the motorcycle implies knowing what functions the parts have, what parts and spare parts are suitable depending on the motorcycle model and driving habits, as well as the maintenance of the parts.

Proper motorcycle maintenance is not only crucial for safety, it can also save money by extending the life of certain parts.

A malfunction of a part can cause an accident or cause a breakdown.

Some tips you should know about motorcycle maintenance

Here are some parts to check regularly, as well as maintenance tips:

Brakes

Brakes are obviously one of the most important components of the bike. Your motorcycle can use one of two types of brakes, drum or disc. Disc brakes tend to be used for larger bikes.

A motorcycle has two brake fluid reservoirs, one for the front and one for the rear. As in a car, both tanks need to be checked regularly.

It is also important to check that the brake pads do not wear too much. Thin pads can damage the brake disc and result in an expensive trip to the repair shop.

Chains

The motorcycle chain should never be too tight. Always leave a clearance of approximately one inch between the two sprockets.

Chain maintenance is essential for any motorcycle and keeping it clean is of the utmost importance.

You have to lubricate it regularly and try to remember to do it every time you fill up with gasoline.

Tires

Tire pressure is the most common cause of motorcycle breakdown.

Under-inflated tires tend to generate more heat, which wears them down more quickly and can cause a blowout.

When the depth of the tread wears down to 1-2mm, it's time to replace the tires.

Oil

Proper oil maintenance keeps the bike in good working order.

Regular oil and filter changes can extend the life of many parts, as well as the motorcycle itself.

An insufficient oil level can lead to disaster, which means that the oil level should always be kept at a high or maximum level. However, it is important to note that the air filter can fill with oil if the oil tank is too full.

Oil checks should be carried out when the motorcycle has not been used and the oil is cold.

In addition, the oil filter must be replaced with every oil change.

Drums

The batteries do not need to be checked as often as the other parts, only once a month, but they are often neglected due to their inconvenient position.

The fluid level in each battery chamber should be checked and filled if low. Only distilled or deionized water should be used. Tap water is contaminated with minerals that can damage the battery and cause it to stop working.

Conclusions

You have to avoid a breakdown or an unnecessary invoice from the mechanic by keeping the bike in good working order and having quality motorcycle spare parts. Same goes with the cars. However, if your vehicle is too old, it might not be the best idea to spend a fortune on new parts. It would be better to sell them for cash while you can. Getting cash for cars is easier nowadays and you can sell your vehicle easily.
