Spring is just around the corner, so it’s time to start preparing your motorcycle for riding safely in the spring. Keep reading this post by Advanced Filtration Technologies in Williston, ND, for all the information you need.

Preparing Your Motorcycle for Spring

After the cold winter months, riding in the spring can be exhilarating. Doing a bit of maintenance before heading out can be a great way to catch any issues that could come from keeping your bike in storage. Here are a few things we recommend you do.

Be sure to give your motorcycle a bit of maintenance before hitting the road this spring. Give Advanced Filtration Technologies, Inc. a call at (701) 572- 3780 to find the best products for your bike. Once you’re ready to order, visit AMSOIL’s online shop to place an order.

Replace Your Oil, Antifreeze and Brake Fluid

Depending on how long your bike has been in storage, it’s essential to change the fluids to ensure it's in the best shape possible. That means changing the oil, antifreeze, and brake fluid. These fluids are essential to help your bike work at its best. Remember that fluids are prone to go bad when your bike is in storage, so make sure you drain and change them for best results.

Do Some Chain Maintenance

An essential moving part of your motorcycle is its chain, so it’s necessary to check if it’s in good condition before taking it out of storage. As part of your chain maintenance, you should lubricate it correctly, check the tension, and if it has any worn sprockets.

Check Your Bike’s Battery

Checking your bike’s battery is also essential when taking it out of storage, and this is an excellent time as any to do so. If you hooked up your battery to a battery tender while your bike was in storage, you might be good to go. But if you didn’t, you’ll need to see how well the battery held its charge. If your battery is dead, you’ll need to get a new one in order for your bike to run. Lastly, make sure there isn’t any corrosion around the battery’s terminals. If you do find some, clean it with a cloth, warm water, and a bit of baking soda. Once it’s clean, tighten the terminals.

Prepare your motorcycle for spring with a bit of maintenance with excellent products like AMSOIL’s Signature Series 5W-50 Synthetic Motor Oil.

Once you’re ready, visit their online shop to place your order.

Ensure Your Riding Gear Is in Good Condition

Now that you’ve done a bit of maintenance on your motorcycle, it’s also essential to check that your riding gear is in good condition. Having the proper attire is vital to being safe on the road. Things like long pants, long sleeves, motorcycle boots, gloves, and a DOT-certified helmet can save you from serious harm in case of an accident. For spring, it’s also vital to consider warm layers as temperatures can still be quite chilly, especially at night. Warm layers can keep you warm and comfortable while riding.

Go Slow to Get Into Riding Shape

Another essential step in going back to riding in the spring is to be in the right shape to do so. It might sound silly, but after a few months off your bike, your instincts might not be as sharp as they used to be. It’s essential to take it slow and readjust to reaction times and road conditions. Also, avoid going too fast until you feel ready. Once you feel comfortable with your bike again, you’ll be able to go back to your usual riding.

Beware of Road Conditions

Lastly, take into consideration how road conditions might have changed during the winter. There might still be some issues on the road, like new potholes or rough stretches that haven’t been repaired yet. Another possibility is that there is sand and salt leftover from snowstorms. Keep in mind that chilly temperatures could still mean ice on the road, which could cause you to slip, which could be extremely dangerous.
