Keeping up with dirt bike maintenance can make a huge difference when it comes to your dirt bike's lifespan. If you're new to this, these simple maintenance tips can help you get off to a good start.

Dirt Bike Maintenance Tips for Beginners

For a new dirt bike rider, maintenance for your bike may seem a little overwhelming. In reality, maintenance is something just about anyone can do properly with a bit of research and some practice. Chances are you want to keep your bike riding strong for a long time, so don't neglect these basic maintenance tasks.

Wash Your Bike Thoroughly

After a day out riding, it's very likely that your dirt bike is covered in dirt and other debris. This is the nature of the sport, but this doesn't mean you should store your bike as it is. In fact, neglecting to wash the dirt and mud off your bike can actually lead to premature wear that is easily preventable. Before this has a chance to happen, grab some water and brushes to get your bike clean. If you notice there's still wet mud stuck in your bike's chain, you're better off waiting for this to dry completely before working on removing it. Dry dirt will be much easier to brush off than wet, sticky dirt, so wait this one out. Once your bike is perfectly clean, dry it so that it doesn't develop any unsightly water marks.

Give Your Dirt Bike an Oil Change

Next up, move onto taking care of some of your bike's internal parts. Your dirt bike's engine will need superior protection, just like your car's engine, in order to continue running strong for a long time. If you already use synthetic oil for your car, then there's no reason not to do the same with your dirt bike. Giving your dirt bike a synthetic oil change will help it run stronger and stay cleaner than if you were to use conventional oil. Oil change intervals won't be the same as with your car. In fact, when it comes to dirt bike, you will need to change your oil more often. To get the most accurate information regarding how often to change your dirt bike's oil, consult your manufacturer's recommendations. Keeping your dirt bike's engine protected can be much easier with the help of a synthetic oil change in Fayetteville. A quality synthetic oil like AMSOIL's 10W-40 Synthetic Dirt Bike Oil can help ensure your engine is well protected under all conditions.

Check on Your Dirt Bike's Tires

After getting your bike clean, checking your wheels and tires will be a lot easier. Start by checking on your bike's spokes since these are known to come a bit loose during a ride. This makes sense because your bike's wheels and tires will be absorbing a lot of the action on the track or trail. Grab the proper tools and get to work on tightening up all of the loose spokes. Failing to do this can cause your wheels to misalign which can lead to future problems with your wheels and can even put you in danger. After that, check on your tire pressure. For the same reason, your tires will likely be low on air. Fill them back up to the recommended pressure before storing your bike. Next time you're heading out to the track, make some time to check on your tire pressure again just to be sure they haven't lost pressure.

Tighten Loose Parts

Your spokes aren't the only thing that may come loose during a day of riding. Because of this, it's important that you take some time to check on other, smaller parts that may be loose. Check all of your bike's nuts, bolts, and cables. If any of these are looser than when you headed out for the day, grab your tools and get to tightening. While this may not seem like a big deal, this small step can ensure you don't come across any unexpected surprises next time you're out riding.
