Tip & How-To about Motorcycles
Ways how to extend your motorcycle life are always draining your transmission oil when you manual tells you to oil after a long period of time and use deterates. So it doesnt lubricate the parts inside as good as it used to always use the type of oil the manual says to use. Always warm your motorcycle up before changing the oil about 7 to 8 minutes should be good enough always keep your motorcycle standing straight when draining the oil so it gets all of the oil out. Spark plug- Change or clean your spark plug when your manual tells you to if cleaning clean all of the carbon deposits on the bottom of the plug if changing make sure you use the one your manual recommends failure to clean or change will result in difficulty in starting and lack of performance. Air cleaner- clean or change your air cleaner when your manual tells you to you can clean the air filter by putting it in motor oil but make sure you wring all of the oil out of the element before putting back in place a dirty element can cause early engine failure and lack of performance. Carburetor- its always good to have a clean carb but if you let gas sit to long inside your carb it can cause it to gum in your carb causing lack of performance and hard starting. If you happen to have a dirty carb it always good to take your bike into a shop to get it cleaned if you have never cleaned a carb before as you can do some costly damage if you dont know what your doing.
