Bike care in Monsoon

keeping your bike tuned in rains is one of the preferred ways through which you can have less maintenance issues with the bike. Heavy rains can spoil the engine within seconds.

You also need to ride the bike with extreme care and precaution when it’s raining heavily. Headlight and brake lights must be working so that you are visible to others. Servicing plays an important role in keeping the bike safe and ready for any type of climatic change.

Tires and engine parts

Change the tires of the bike if they are worn out. If the tires are out of grip you need to change them to avoid slipping. Keeping the right pressure in the bike will increase the life of tire. Right pressure also avoids slipping and skidding chances on wet surfaces. Avoid speeding on concrete roads, any road which shines at night should be avoided as chances of slipping are more. Synthetic oil can be used to increase the life of engine and other parts related to piston chamber. High rpm might arise when you are stuck in water. In such condition use of synthetic oil will protect the engine and will reduce the wear and tear. Tire retreading can be done to get the grip back. If the tire is worn out completely then there is no point in retreading. Tire treads are important for griping the bike on wet surface.

Brake light must be working properly. High and low filament should be in top condition. Whenever you are planning to change lanes correct indicators must be given. At times during heavy rains it is essential to show electronic indicators instead of hand signal.

These are some of the bike tips which can be used during monsoons. Always keep your bike clean and check the brake liners before riding out. If the brake liners are damaged you need to replace them immediately.
