Winter Storage Tips For Your Motorcycle!
If you have a motorbike, then you know how important it can be to store your motorbike in a reliable and professional manner. You need to make sure that you invest your time properly in finding the best methods to maintain your bike running properly and with the best results.
First and foremost, you need to make sure that you fill your gas tank, because not only will this prevent the tank from rusting, but you will also be able to determine if there are any water droplets, because these are very important to deal with right off the bat.
On top of that, if you are still at the petrol station, it would be a very good idea to further increase the pressure in your tires with around 0,5 bar above what the manufacturer has recommended, as this will provide you with some amazing results at the end of the day.
After you do that and get back home, it’s a good idea to change the oil. The idea here is that the old oil will usually include a multitude of aggressive substances and these can easily get damage to pistons, not to mention that they will also contact surfaces as well as bearings during storage. With this you will be able to avoid issues such as clogging, although it’s also recommended to replace the oil filter at the same time, as this is very important.
Of course, before you perform winter storage you also need to clean the bike properly. Make sure that you spray the bike with an anti-corrosion agent, all while making sure that your bike is cleaned properly and with the best results, since that is truly important at all costs. Cleaning the bike properly will help you a lot during the winter storage, because you will get your bike clean and ready to go right off the bat which is truly important.
Protecting against the elements is a necessity here, so you will need to spray the tank, windshield, tail and side cover with some hard wax paint conditioner as this will help a lot.
You need to grease all the levers and joints, as it’s a crucial thing to do if you want to make sure that your Kuwait motorbike is fully prepared for winter storage. A thing to note here is the bike needs to be cool before you place it in winter storage, otherwise problems can appear and you want to avoid that at all costs. A chain cleaner will remove the dirt and then you can prepare it properly for your desired winter storage routine. You will also have to spray the chain on the inside of the lower run, something that will help you a lot when it comes to actually performing winter storage, so keep that in mind.
