Basic Maintenance Tips for Your Dirt Bike

Keep Your Dirt Bike Ready to Ride

Maint Techs Sales and Services Basic Tips

Keeping your dirt bike ready to ride isn't as difficult as you might think, but it does take a little bit of elbow grease. To get you started, Maint Techs Sales and Services has put together a few tips to keep your bike in good shape.

1. Keeping the right tire pressure may seem like second nature, but many riders maintain one pressure, despite the change in ride conditions. Plan ahead for your ride, and if you're heading to an area that's heavy with mud, adjust your tire pressure accordingly to make sure you don't get stuck.

2. Whilst we're talking about tires, before each ride inspect your tires to make sure they have enough tread to keep you safe. It's important to tend to any issues or damage that you notice before you get on the bike so as not to ride unsafely.

3. With so much thought about your bike going forward, don't forget that it needs to stop. Check your brake pads and if they're looking a little low, change them. If you're going track riding then you're likely to need to slow and start, so make sure that you aren't left behind without any brakes.

4. Keeping your bike clean isn't just for looks, it also prevents the built up of dirt, water and other contaminants that can cause damage to not only the paint on your bike, but its engine.

5. Check your fluid and oil levels before you head off on your ride, making sure that you have topped up anything that looks a little low. If you are concerned, bring a bottle with you for the ride in the event yours or a fellow riders bike needs it.
Dirt bikes can provide you with great amounts of fun, as long as they're maintained and ready. Speak with Maint Techs Sales and Services on (843) 224-1454 about how using a high quality AMSOIL Oil in Charleston, SC can keep your bike performing on the track.
