Tires Inspection for motorcycle
Tyres are a vital part on a motorcycle, let alone used during rainy days. To get maximum performance, tires should be treated properly.
Worn tires will lose its ability both in durability and function traksinya. We recommend that tires be replaced if the tire has been living as deep as 0.8 mm. Do not wait tire completely bald. Because we passed the standing water will flow Tires channel water towards the side of the tire. If there is no plot. Water can not be distributed towards the side of the tire as a result lifted above the water surface. This will make the motorcycle shaky. Consider the following things:
1. Use the right type of tire in accordance with the conditions of use, loading capacity and speed.
Tip: If you do replacement tires, should use the same brand and type of tires Front and rear. Different type of flower will cause the performance of different tires. How to safely use the type of tire recommended by the motorcycle manufacturer that you use because the manufacturer would have done the test with a variety of weather conditions.
2. Tire pressure must be maintained according to manufacturer specifications. Although this is very important and easy thing to do, but many users do not notice motorcycles.
Wind pressure checks on tires, should be standardized (Read the specs on the factory owners manual.) If too low pressure heavy motorcycle while driving and would easily leak because Ban The inside will rub and cause overheating. If too tight the pressure will be felt not stable in the medium and high speed because the surface of the tire that touches the road surface is too small.
3. Put Close valve, because it will prevent entry of dirt and also serves as additional insulation.
4. If you use tubeless tires (without tires), try to time replace it with a new tire, replace the nipple because the nipple also have O ring made of rubber which will change the nature of hardness and elasticity with time of use. O ring that has been used to harden will crack causing leakage.
5. It is recommended when replacing tires, tires also replaced simultaneously. Tires in the long-used, will easily leak. Especially if it is too much tambalannya.
Inspection Fuel Systems & Carburetors income
When the rains cause the air content (02) as mixing the fuel sucked by the carburetor contains a lot of water so that if conditions such as Fuel Systems Fuel Tanks, Valves, Fuel and fuel pipes are rust or water content will result in the performance of the engine stalled. It would be more troublesome in wet conditions. Coming to the Official Workshop for regular maintenance.
Checking Engine Oil.
When it rains the condition of the air which contains water and there is standing water on some roads more than 30 cm in height (the size of an adult's knee) will certainly facilitate the entry of water into the machine and mixed with oil.

Immediately do the oil change if the flooding has passed the road which is quite high. This is to avoid further damage to the machine.

Water can also enter through the air filter. Especially if you pass a pool of high water or flooding. If water is not too tinggipun potentially get into the machine, especially if a four-wheel drive vehicle in addition to a motorcycle or in the opposite direction. Will create a wave of water and hit the front of the motor as a result of water entering through the air filter. If the amount of water is too much to enter, will result in a more severe of Water Hammer. Water hammer is a hard blow on the engine which caused severe damage to the engine such as: crooked rod piston (Connecting Rod), etc. Broken Piston.
Braking System Inspection.
Check the functions of front and rear brakes are working, do the simulation of braking before driving a few times to make sure the function works well, besides the function deteksilah whether there squeaking sound if yes, which means that the surface was slippery Brake Lining Canvas and need treatment. If the function was less well check the thickness of the brakes by looking directly thick Pad (Disc Brakes) and see indicators of thickness on the drum type brakes. If too little soon to do the replacement in the Official Workshop.
Steering System Inspection
Lastly, check the steering system, because it needed a good stability when driving during rainy days. Besides it is difficult to predict road conditions such as holes, rocks or while avoiding other riders who suddenly quit. Ask your mechanic to check the Official Workshop. Or you can do the following tips for initial examination:
