Maintenance For Dirt Bike Winter Season

If your bike has a carburetor, drain the tank, fuel lines, and carburetor bowl. To do this right, keep the gas cap off completely for 24 hours to dry everything out. If you don’t, there will be some leftover fuel. This usually turns tacky and just ends up blocking the jets which, of course, can affect the running efficiency or performance of your motorbike.

Remove old oil. Over time, a running engine’s oil changes from a clean, gold-colored fluid to dirty, black sludge. In just a few months’ time, the contaminants in old oil can corrode into some engine parts and do some serious damage. As such, don’t forget to change the oil and filter plug before storing your ride this winter season to avoid a troublesome situation later on.

Consider running the bike for a few minutes every week. By following this tip, you will prevent fuel from “sleeping,” and if you rev the bike up several times a week, fuel would course through the jets and this will keep the jets clean throughout the winter.

Look after the bike’s tires. If possible, store your bike with the tires off the ground. This is because taking the weight off your wheels is the best way to avoid flat spots or uneven wear. If this is not, possible, fill your tires to the maximum recommended volume, put your ride on its center stand, and rotate the front tire once a week to keep the flat spots away.

Wash, dry, and wax your dirt bike before storing it. In general, the metal on your motorcycle tends to accumulate moisture, which can easily cause rust if your dirt bike is left unattended for a long period of time. Washing, painstakingly drying, and waxing your dirt bike before putting it away for the winter will help prevent corrosion and other damage.
