We want to be on the road many years with our motorcycles. Therefore, we need take care of them very well. Also, it’s not easy to fine a lot of parts for the motorcycles in most West-African countries.
We check tire pressure every 2 days. If we pass really bad road we check them to make sure we don’t have any needles, small rock or something stuck.
Chain and Sprockets:
We clean the chain every 1.500-2.000 km. At the same time we control in front sprocket to make sure.
We look how much tide our chains is 3 times a week.
We oil the chain every 200-500 km. It depends on the weather and road condition.
Fluid, Oil, etc.:
We don`t have anything routine time for that. They are in front of us. When we stop on the road she always turn around the motorcycles and looking break fluids, radiator and engine oil.
General Control :
Maybe the most important one is that we listen to our motorcycles when riding, if we hear anything different we try to figure out what it is. Apart from the every week or after a bad road bumpy, rocky, dusty, etc. we look almost all screws, breaks, engine. To see anything we lost or has damage.
Following Technical Book:
Also, we look to technical book when we need to change parts or what we need to control.
Looking Our Notes:
We have been writing notes when we changed something (engine oil, oil-air filter, sprockets, chain…etc.) on our motorcycles. So, we check our notes and motorcycle km to don’t miss anything.
What we have been learning on the road we always like to share. You can find playlist to watch from our maintenance here :
