With autumn just around the corner, it's time to start adapting your motorcycle's maintenance to it. For a few tips on how you can do that, read this post by Superior Synthetics LLC in Waupaca County.

How to Manage Your Motorcycle During the Fall Season

Fall is a beautiful season in which the world changes color and the weather gets crisper. However, if you're a motorcycle rider, fall should also be the moment in which you start preparing for harsher conditions on the road. To ensure you can continue riding your motorcycle safely during this season, below you'll find tips that can help you.

Call Superior Synthetics LLC at (715) 823-6525 to inquire about how the continued use of AMSOIL products (such as the best synthetic oil in Waupaca County) can benefit your motorcycle.

Pay Attention to the Tires

Your motorcycle's tires have one of the hardest jobs around, since they need to keep up with a lot of weight, move a heavy object around, and endure the friction with the road. Additionally, they need to put up with the weather, which is why, now that the conditions are changing, you need to ensure your tires will be prepared to take on the challenge in a safe manner. Inspect them to guarantee they will!

Mind Your Battery

As you may know, your motorcycle requires a charged battery in order to function, since some of its features depend on its power. The thing is, that during the colder months, the lower temperatures can affect the battery. Moreover, since you may not ride your motorcycle as much as you do during the summer, it may get discharged without you noticing. To ensure you won't be stranded while you're out on the road, keep an eye out for your battery and charge it carefully if needed.

Lubricate the Chain Properly

The chain in your motorcycle may seem like a small and unimportant component. However, in all actuality, the chain has a very crucial job, as it is in charge of transferring power from the engine to the rear wheel, facilitating the movement of your motorcycle. Still, as the weather starts dropping, the chain becomes more vulnerable and the chances that it will break increase. That's why, if you want to keep that from happening, you need to clean it thoroughly and lubricate it as instructed in your owner's manual.

Visit a Professional Mechanic

Taking your motorcycle to a professional and reliable mechanic is something you should do each time the season changes (at the very least). This is because, as mentioned above, the changing conditions can affect how it performs. To guarantee that your motorcycle will keep you cruising through the fall season safely and effectively, have a mechanic inspect it, fine-tune it, and replace its synthetic oil to keep its engine in mint shape.

Keep your engine strong this fall with help from AMSOIL 20W-50 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil. Call Superior Synthetics LLC at (715) 823-6525 to place an order for the most effective motorcycle oil in Waupaca County. 

Change Your Riding Gear

While it is true that you should always wear your helmet and other protective gear while you're riding your motorcycle, you may have to adapt other components of your riding attire to the new season. For example, if you wore light fabrics during the summer to stay fresh, you will have to opt for thicker gear that can protect you from any impact and from the lower fall and winter temperatures.

Consider the Conditions Around You

Needless to say, when you're a motorcycle rider, you need to consider the conditions around you. That's why you should realize how those conditions change with the fall season. For example, the road may be slippery from rain, snow, or dead leaves, which is why you need to pay more attention than usual. Likewise, as the important fall holidays (e.g. Thanksgiving) approach, you may notice a surge in traffic, which means you'll also have to be more careful.

Prepare to Winterize It

More often than not, people store their motorcycles away during the winter months, as the cold weather and harsh conditions can be too much to have enjoyable rides. If you're one of those people, you should start preparing to winterize your motorcycle during the fall season. For instance, Bike Bandit suggests using a motorcycle stand to protect the tires; if you don't have one, this is the perfect time to work on getting one.
