Most motorcycle owners love their motorcycle more than anything else they own. If you just got your own, it makes sense to take the best care of it possible. To achieve this, use these tips.



How to Care for Your Motorcycle

If you're a new motorcycle owner, you may be worried about how much work it'll take to take care of your new ride. The truth is there are plenty of easy tasks you can take care of to ensure your motorcycle stays at its best. To help you learn how to take care of some maintenance tasks, check out these tips.

Change the Air Filter

To let your motorcycle breathe properly, you'll need its air filter to be squeaky clean. Over time, your air filter will fill up with dust and debris, making it more difficult for it to breathe. Many people don't realize that this can really affect the performance of their motorcycle. To know how often to change yours, check your manufacturer's recommendations. Keep in mind that if you drive through very dusty conditions often, you may have to change it more often. To change your air filter, first find a replacement one that is clean. Next, check your owner's manual to find where the air filter is located in your motorcycle. Carefully open this up, remove the dirty air filter, and replace it with the new one.

Give Your Motorcycle an Oil Change

Giving your motorcycle an oil change may sound like a huge challenge you won't be able to conquer, but that's not true at all. In fact, changing your motorcycle's oil is quite easy so there's no reason not to give it a try. Start by grabbing a drain pan where you will catch the oil as it comes out of your bike and avoid making a mess in your garage. Next, warm up your motorcycle which will help the oil flow out faster. Once it's warm, remove the oil cap and the drain bolt to allow the oil to drain out on its own. Don't forget to also remove the oil filter and replace it with a fresh! Once the oil is all out, fill it back up with the right amount of oil according to the manufacturer's recommendations and put the oil cap and drain bolt back in their place. Keep in mind that oil can't be disposed of like regular trash, so look for an oil recycling center in your town to dispose of it properly. To ensure your oil change is as effective as possible, be sure it's a synthetic oil changeClick here to buy AMSOIL's 20W-50 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil which can help your motorcycle's engine stay cleaner and in better shape.

Check Your Motorcycle's Tires

You may not think to check on your motorcycle's tires very often, but this is a must. They may not need to be changed often, but you should be checking on your tire pressure regularly. To do this, grab a pressure gauge and use this to get a reading of your current tire pressure. If you're not sure what your air pressure should be, check tire walls. These will often have the recommended air pressure printed on them. If your air pressure is too high, simply let some of the air out until you get it right. If the pressure is too low, head over to your nearest gas station and use their air compressor to fill up your tires. After this, it's time to check on your tire tread. Most tires will have wear indicators which make it easy to tell when the tread is too worn. If the wear bars are almost even with the tread, you should be getting ready to replace your tires.

Keep Your Chain Clean

Finally, take a look at your motorcycle's chain. You won't have to do this often, but it is important that you do remember to do this. Check your manufacturer's recommendations to know how often you will have to clean it, but if your chain is looking very dirty, don't wait. Grab a soft bristle brush for the job and put your motorcycle on a stand so that the back tire is elevated. Put your motorcycle in neutral and carefully brush the dirt off the chain. Once it's clean, grab your chain lubricant and get an even coat on the entire thing.
