Many people often only pay attention to the maintenance of motorcycle mechanical parts, but ignore the maintenance of motorcycle tyres. They often encounter punctured and blown tires while driving, and they frequently change new tires due to premature wear. Most of the above phenomena are caused by not paying attention to the maintenance of tires. These abnormal phenomena not only cause a lot of trouble and harm to the cyclists, but also bring unnecessary economic losses. Today, I summarized some practical experience and experience in maintaining motorcycle tyres for everyone to learn from.
Motorcycle tyres are rubber products, so they are afraid of the tide and heat. Avoid long-term storage of the car in a humid place, and avoid long-term storage or exposure in high temperature environments. Tires should not come into contact with oils and other items. If such items are accidentally stuck on, they should be cleaned off as soon as possible. Otherwise, these factors will cause the tire to age prematurely. The load-bearing capacity of tires has a certain range. Overloading will inevitably lead to increased tire deformation, increased ground contact area, and accelerated wear. Being accustomed to frequent use of braking, especially emergency braking, makes tire wear even worse. Therefore, when driving, you must control the speed of the vehicle smoothly, and use the brakes as little as possible. When decelerating, try to use the throttle to control, which not only reduces the wear of the motorcycle tyres but also reduces the consumption of brake pads. Tire punctures during driving are probably something every rider has encountered, especially in unmanned areas in the suburbs. Tire punctures can be a headache. To avoid tire punctures, first try to walk the motorway and follow the wheel marks of the car.
