If you own a motorbike, then you know that regular maintenance is key. Regularly servicing your bike keeps it in tip-top shape and ensures that you get the most out of your ride.

All bikes bought in for any service work will receive a free motorcycle health check that covers all the major components of the bike and a free report given to each customer.
Regular oil changes are essential for keeping your motorbike running smoothly. Most experts recommend changing your oil every 3000 miles or 6 months—whichever comes first. This will help prevent the buildup of sludge and contaminants, which can cause serious damage to your engine over time. Before changing the oil yourself, be sure to consult your owner’s manual for specific instructions about how to properly dispose of used oil.
You should also check your tyres regularly for signs of wear and tear, as well as pressure levels (both tyre pressure and air pressure). Make sure that all tyres are inflated to the recommended level; underinflated tyres can reduce fuel efficiency and even lead to blowouts at high speeds. Additionally, check for any visible signs of damage such as punctures or tears in the sidewall. If you notice any issues with your tyres, take them to a professional right away for repair or replacement if necessary.
Check Your Fluids
Your motorcycle also needs regular fluid checks to remain in optimal condition. Check engine coolant levels before every ride; this is especially important during hot weather when temperatures are higher than normal. Also, be sure to check brake fluid levels at least once a month—more often if you do a lot of riding—as well as clutch fluid levels if necessary (depending on make and model). Finally, top up transmission liquid levels every few months or so (again depending on make/model) and monitor oil levels between full services.
Taking care of your motorbike doesn’t have to be difficult! As long as you stay on top of routine maintenance tasks like checking fluids, changing oil, and inspecting tyres, you can ensure that your ride will remain safe and reliable for years to come! Doing regular inspections yourself can save time and money by preventing potential problems from occurring down the line.
