Knowing how to maintain your motorcycle is not only essential for saving money, but it also ensures your safety on the roads of Dubai. Keeping your motorcycle in prime condition is one of the best ways to ensure a safe and enjoyable riding experience in the UAE. Here are nine things you can check at home:

  1. Tyres: Your Connection to Dubai’s Roads Your tyres are the only things connecting you to the roads of Dubai, so it’s worth giving them a thorough check at least once a week. Inspect each tyre for imperfections and ensure they still have a nicely rounded profile.
  2. Lighting: Illuminate Your Path Turn the bike on and, moving from front to rear, check that all the lights are working. This is especially important for night rides in Dubai.
  3. Oil: The Lifeblood of Your Motorcycle Your engine needs oil, so be sure to check your bike’s oil level regularly. If the indicator shows low oil, be sure to do a top-up, using the recommended viscosity oil for your bike.
  4. Coolant: Keep Your Engine Cool in Dubai’s Heat Check your bike’s coolant level too. This is especially important in Dubai’s hot climate.
  5. Brake Fluid: Ensure Your Safety Next up is brake fluid. Make sure the bike is upright, before eye-balling the brake fluid levels in each reservoir.
  6. Brake Pads: Stop When You Need To Brake pads are another thing every Dubai rider should be keeping tabs on. If they’re down to a few millimetres, it’s time for replacement.
  7. Chain: Keep It Tensioned and Lubricated Now it’s time to check your chain’s tension and lubrication. Remember also to lubricate your chain regularly with a good quality chain lube.
  8. Keep It Clean: Prolong Your Bike’s Life Washing your bike regularly is a great way to spot anything that might need attention. Plus, it keeps your bike looking good on Dubai’s roads.
  9. Battery: Power Your Ride Last, but not least, you should be looking after your bike’s battery. Inspect the battery every few weeks to ensure there’s no corrosion forming around the battery terminals.

Remember, it’s important to always check your owner’s manual for the best practice for your specific motorcycle. And always consult a qualified mechanic if you’re unsure of anything. Stay safe on the roads of Dubai with XBYKE!
