Warmer weather means getting ready for motorcycle season

With spring just around the corner, many people start to get the itch for outdoor activities. If your preferred warm-weather pastime involves cruising on your motorcycle, you can start getting ready for that right now.

Before it is warm enough to go out for your first ride of the new year, you will want to make sure that your motorcycle is in top condition after having been in storage for several months. Handling the spring maintenance on your motorcycle can help you be ready for the first day where it’s warm and dry enough to safely ride.

Spring maintenance helps you catch issues before they affect your safety

Seasonal maintenance doesn’t just keep your bike running smoothly after a long stay in storage. It also gives you a chance to check for preventable issues, like problems with the brakes or burned-out light bulbs.

Making all the necessary repairs and performing routine maintenance before you start the bike up for the first time this year will help protect its long-term performance and keep you safer on the road.

Spring maintenance for motorcycles often includes:

  • Changing the oil and oil filters
  • Draining any fuel left behind from last season
  • Adding fresh fuel
  • Charging or replacing the battery after storage
  • Checking the brakes and electrical lines for damage
  • Checking the tires and filling them
  • Checking and refilling other fluids

Your bike isn’t the only thing that needs a little maintenance. Check your gear — especially your boots and helmet — for signs of wear and replace them if necessary. You may also want to spend a few hours reviewing traffic laws for motorcycles and safety articles online so that your driving skills stay sharp.

Being proactive about maintenance can help ensure that your vehicle’s condition won’t play a role in a motorcycle crash. If you are involved in a crash caused by a driver or another motorcyclist, be sure to seek the compensation you need to cover expenses and damages.
