Tip & How-To about Motorcycles
When preparing a bike for a ride in the dirt, it is a good idea to pay attention to what holds your bike together. Cotter and Split pins can be made more secure with a zip-tie or wire.
Rocks, tree roots and even coarse grass can easily pull out hairpin cotters and split pins. To minimise this, place opening of pins to the least likely side to be impacted.
The Hairpin Cotter below, if placed the other way could easily be displaced if struck going over rough terrains.
