When you are out taking a ride off road, your weight and your motorcycle weight will put high pressure on your motorbike’s tires. So it is really important to ensure your motorbike’s tyres are in the best condition. Use our instruction to examining and servicing motorcycle tires.
Whether you are taking a ride on streets or on dirt, one important part of your motorcycle gears is your tyres. Under the pressure of your weight and your tire’s weight, your tire’s condition can mall the big difference between riding off-road and taking an interesting ride.
One thing you should bear in mind is to inspect your tyres before taking any ride. It takes only a few minutes to do that job. It also helps you find some important problems that can place you in danger on your ride. As examining your tires, there’re 4 essential things you should take into account. Let’s take a look at those things:
1) Checking the air pressure
At any time you are taking a ride off road, you should maintain the pressure of air in both tires. The followings are what could occur in case you are not riding with right tire pressures:
- Tire or tube failure
- Over inflation decreases the contact field of your tyres, as the tires couldn’t stick to the ground that can reduce traction.
- Premature or irregular wear of tires
- Under inflation can lead your tires to slide out of the roads, resulting in more air loss, eventually leading to pinching flats.
