MOTORCYCLE WINTER PREPARATION & STORAGE

by Rean 18. December 2012 12:48

If you live in an area that has cold, wintery weather, it is a good idea to store your bike if you don’t plan on riding it.  Here are some steps to help you through the process:

1)  Picking a proper place to store your ride is key.  Usually a smooth, dry, level place inside away from the elements is best.

2)  Take your bike out for one last ride before storing to heat the engine up.  This burns off engine condensation and heats the oil up which will make the oil change you are about to perform more effective.  Also, at the end of your ride add some gasoline stabilizer and fill the tank completely with fuel.  The stabilizer will keep sludge from forming while the bike is stored.

3)  Perform an oil and filter change while your bike is still warm.  Damage could result to your engine if you do not complete this step.  In addition, check all fluid levels.

4)  Place your bike on a centerstand or a pair of bike stands for storage if you have them. 

5)  Remove the spark plugs in order to spray fogging oil into the cylinders so that the rings do not stick. Start up the bike for a short time to coat the cylinder walls.  Reinstall the plugs taking care not to cross-thread them.  Using anti-sieze on the plugs to protect the threads is helpful.

6)  Apply a small amount of WD40 into each exhaust pipe after they have cooled down then cover them to keep moisture out during storage.  It’s a good idea to cover the air box’s intake(s) as well.  Make sure the method of covering both the exhaust and air intake(s) makes for an airtight seal.

BABY, IT'S COLD OUTSIDE

by Rean 28. November 2012 05:47

If you choose to ride your bike during the winter, several things should be considered. 

First, make sure your bike is tuned up and ready to go.  This includes adjusting air pressure in the tires.  Lowering tire pressure provides better contact with the road.  Better contact with the road surface facilitates warming of the rubber, which aids in better grip.  

Next, be informed of the weather conditions for the area and route you will be taking.  It can be dangerous to ride on snowy roads.  Be aware of hazards such as salt laden surfaces or black ice.  The salt that is laid down to melt snowy passages can be very corrosive to exposed motorcycle parts.

Another very important aspect of winter riding is investing in some quality apparel.  Cycle-Parts.com carries a wide variety of apparel that will keep you warm and toasty as the cold wind is upon you.  Consider having the following items on hand for that brisk commute or trip.

Balaclava/Facemasks - These can usually be worn under a helmet and provide much needed insulation.  Most of our heat exits from our head and feet so using something of this nature is crucial, especially in extremely cold environments.

Gloves - Although some may choose not to wear gloves when the weather is warmer, it is a good idea to don a pair when riding a motorcycle during winter.  When our hands are exposed to the cold for long periods, the muscles do not react as quickly or effectively.  Just make sure the gloves you purchase allow you to grip the handlebars without restricting your movement.

Jackets & Pants - We carry a plethora of jackets and pants that provide insulation, water resistance and armor protection.  You could also consider a heated jacket liner or heated gloves for additional warmth.

Boots & Socks - As stated earlier, most body heat leaves through the head and feet.  It is essential to preserve that heat while riding through winter weather.  Boots made especially for colder temperatures as well as specialized socks are available in our store.  Also, boot covers can be purchased that insulate and protect your current boots.  This may save some money as opposed to buying a whole new pair for the season.

Riding in the winter does not come without its risk or preparation, but if you take the time to get your bike and yourself in gear, you will enjoy riding that much more as a result.

Happy Riding and Stay Warm!

HELMET SAFETY GUIDE

by Rean 18. July 2012 07:40

When riding a motorcycle one of the most important things you should have is the proper helmet. Helmet requirements vary from state to state but very important in the safety of motorcyclist. The US Department of Transportation has issued requirements that will certify helmets after they pass a series of tests.  When you shop for a helmet make sure it has the DOT logo which means it is designed for impact protection, penetration protection and retention.

Helmets have save thousands of lives. According to NHTSA studies have shown that a motorcycle operator has a 37% and a passenger has a 41% great chance of surviving a motorcycle accident when wearing a helmet.

When making a purchase make sure the helmet fits snug. You should fill the padding against the front and top of your head. The helmet should fit tight enough that it can’t be pulled off easily.  Many helmets can also be purchased with adjustable padding to make it fit properly.
