Change the engine oil:
Your motorcycle has an owner's manual where you can find out the frequency of engine oil change. Generally, technicians advise changing the oil after riding 2500 kilometers. Sometimes, this figure varies as per the type of oil used (mineral, semi-synthetic, fully synthetic). So you can change the oil using a wrench. It's not that difficult.

Check tire pressure:
You just need a tire gauge to check the pressure. Generally, manufacturers recommend an ambient temperate I.e, when the tires is cold to check the pressure. Pressure recommendation varies based on the specific model. These details can be found in the manual. If the pressure is low, consider filling air. If you have a personal compressor or simply a bicycle pump at home does it now.

Clean the air filter:
Whether it is a paper filter, cotton filter, or foam filter inspect the cleanliness every time you change engine oil. Remove the filter from its housing and clean it properly following the manual. If it is a paper filter, you can't clean it. For satisfaction, blow air for cleaning. If it is a foam one, use airflow and in case of cotton, cleaning fluid can be used. It will help your engine get plenty of fresh air.

Check the battery:
Battery performance depends on quality and maintenance. If the battery is older than 3 years, it's time to be cautious. You must inspect and change it immediately if it doesn't keep a charge. If you face dim light, the problem in the start, etc. check the voltage scale test using a multimeter.

Grease cables and chain:
It is very important to oil and grease cable housing, chain, and some other jerk fittings. Consider greasing in points like sliding points, pivoting points, and rotating points. So lubricate whenever you find these places dry.

Clean the body:
This task should be performed in a regular interval to protect the motorcycle from dirt, and to protect the original paint. Regular cleaning also helps avoid junk in iron parts and maintain a shiny look.

All the above needs a little effort to upkeep the vehicle and enjoy a worry-free ride. These maintenance efforts require little automotive technical knowledge. Once you start doing them, everything will be easy. Read an interesting blog with some exciting topics of your choice. (Shakti Prakash Nayak - EzineArticles.com)
