Over the past few months, people have relied on motorcycles to help them travel to obtain their essential goods. Indeed, motorcycles are now seen as an important investment as a means of transportation or as additional livelihood. But like all motorized investments, these maintenance need for it to stay reliable and efficient.
To ensure that your motorcycle remains in its tiptop condition, Honda Philippines Inc. (HPI), the No.1 motorcycle manufacturer in the country, lists down some reminders on how to maintain your steeds while ensuring your safety while on the road.
Change Oil Regularly. The frequency of each bike’s oil change depends on age and oil used. Make sure to use recommended Honda genuine engine oil and follow oil replacement schedules to prevent breakdowns.
Keep Your Brake Pads Fresh. Regularly checking your brake pads’ status helps you stay aware of its condition, and never overestimate the importance of brake pads since it can literally save your life.
Give Your Motorcycle A Wash. Washing your bike frees it from dirt and gunk built-up from countless hours of use.
Maintain the Air filter. The air filter does an important job of protecting your engine’s more delicate internal parts from dust and other particles.
Replace Your Engine Coolant. The coolant’s job is to manage the engine’s temperature to keep coolant level at reservoir up to the upper limit line and prevent overheating. Always change the coolant according to your usage or its recommended change schedule.
Keep the Chain Clean and Lubricated. Your bike chain needs to stay well-oiled to prevent excessive mechanical wear and then adjust its chain to standard free play.
Charge Your Motorcycle’s Battery. Most batteries last for two years before dying out. However, if you maintain its standard voltage, you can maximize its lifespan longer than expected.
