Advice for Beginners on How to Make Sure Their Dirt Bike is in Good Condition for a Safer Ride

Even though many enjoy the risk and more accelerated thrill that dirt bike riding provides, you need to keep in mind that one big accident can end it all in a matter of minutes. Many accidents can be prevented by being well prepared. That is why it is important that whether you are a beginner or an expert, you take the right precautions to make sure your bike is in good shape for a safer ride.

Select a Dirt Bike That is the Right Size

When purchasing a dirt bike it is also necessary that it fits you correctly. Size does matter and you don´t want a bike that is too large or very small for your body type. Riding a bike that is not the adequate size can result in great difficulty steering and maneuvering it. It will also make it hard to properly control in more challenging trails and will pose a hazard to your safety. Check that the bike you are riding fits you properly. You should be able to reach all the controls comfortably. You shouldn´t have to stretch for them and they shouldn´t be so close that you have to shrink down.  To learn more about how to make sure your bike is the right size, read Honda´s tips, here. 

Start Getting to Know Your Bike

If you have just begun to experience this fun and exciting sport then one of the first things you need to do is to make sure you get to know your bike very well. The first thing you can do is to get acquainted with every area of your bike, and all the parts. Start off by reading the owner´s manual and learning about the basic needs and important parts of your bike. There are two types of dirt bikes, two-stroke, and four-stroke. There are several differences between both, and it is important to recognize that each has a different operating system and therefore maintenance requirements may vary.

Learn What Type of Oil Your Bike Needs and Use Synthetic Oil for Better Lubrication

Depending on what type of dirt bike you have, you will need to use either 2-stroke or 4-stroke oil. Again, read the specifications in your owner´s manual. Four-stroke oil comes in different grades and two stroke oil can be either injector safe or pre-mixed. Your manufacturer will specify what grade your 4-stroke engine needs or what ratio of mix your 2-stroke bike requires. For more information on choosing the best synthetic oil for your dirt bike, contact Ken Reaser Enterprises at (321) 230-6958.

Make Sure You Keep Your Dirt Bike Well Maintained and Inspect It Before Every Use

It is crucial that you keep your bike well maintained and that you regularly inspect it to prevent any last minute surprises that can cause an accident. Things that you should regularly check are the brakes, that the tires are in good conditions, that the wires are in good shape, and that all fluids are at a good level. The oil in your dirt bike needs to be checked frequently and changed often. Using a synthetic oil can help to prolong the lubrication duration and will increase the performance of your bike. However, it is still important to check the oil every so often to ensure there are no other problems that may be causing a reduction in levels or contaminating it.

Take a Course on Dirt Bike Riding and Continue to Learn More Safety Information

Constant practice is very helpful when you are just getting the hang of this sport but it is also necessary to get some more professional guidance. Taking a safety course and another dirt bike riding classes is a very important step. Even if you have already learned the basics and are doing well, taking a course can widen your knowledge. You will likely learn some new techniques and valuable bike handling information.

The Best Products for the Synthetic Oil Change of Your Dirt Bike

Remember that having fun is important but the most important thing is to keep yourself safe. Stay on top of your synthetic oil changes and make sure you complete all regular maintenance in a timely manner. This, along with the other tips we mentioned, can start you off on the right path to keeping a safer bike. Try AMSOIL products today and experience the exceptional performance they provide.
