Get Your Motor Running: Is Your Motorcycle Ready for Spring?

Getting ready to take your motorcycle out of storage? Here are some tips on getting your bike road-ready for the spring!

#1: Open the filler cap and look for gunk. If the fuel is questionable, it may be a good idea to drain the tank, fuel lines and carburetor.

#2: Before starting your bike, remove the spark plugs and pour two tablespoons of oil into the spark plug ports to lubricate the top portion of the cylinder walls.

#3: Oil degrades in the off-season – now is a great time to change it to keep your engine in shape.

#4: Check your clutch, brake and coolant levels and top off any that need it.

#5: Look over your suspension and tires. Check your tires for excessive wear, stress marks, cracks or flat spots and replace if necessary.

#6 Check your motorcycle insurance policy and call your agent with any questions or changes that need to be made.

Have a great ride! And remember if you are looking for motorcycle insurance, call Van Beurden Insurance today.
