Motorcycles require maintenance on a regular basis due to the short lifespan of components. This can include lubricants, fluids, tires, and other materials used on the bike.
Maintaining a bike properly will help it last longer and make sure it performs safely and efficiently. This can be important for anyone who enjoys riding their bike and wants to avoid issues that could leave them stranded, underperforming, or unsafe on the road.

Oil changes are a very important part of motorbike service. They help lubricate the moving parts of your bike, helping reduce friction that could cause serious damage to your engine.
The recommended intervals vary by manufacturer, but it’s usually recommended to change your motorcycle’s oil on a regular basis. It’s also worth noting that your mileage and driving conditions can influence how often you need to change it.
The first oil change is particularly important on new bikes, because of the engine break-in period. The metal parts of the engine are settling into their final positions during this time, so they’re wearing in and generating heat.
A filter is an important part of your motorcycle’s engine that prevents dirt particles from getting into the combustion chamber. It also ensures smooth combustion, which is what your bike needs to make more power.
There are mainly three types of air filters: paper, foam and gauze. All of them have their role to play in enhancing your bike’s performance and the type you choose depends on your riding style.
Foam air filters are often used on off-road bikes where they have the advantage of blocking dust and debris before it can get to the engine. They also come with a soaking feature that helps dry any oil leakage.
The brakes on a motorcycle slow the vehicle down by clamping against the brake disc which rotates with the wheels. This is done by the caliper, which has pistons that are pushed by pressure from the master cylinder which is filled with brake fluid.
Brake pads are friction materials that are fitted to the caliper from both sides and clamp against the disc. This decelerates the disc rotation, causing it to slow down and stop the vehicle.
The brake pads are typically replaced after they start to wear down. They can be replaced by a mechanic or you can do it yourself if you have the right tools and experience.
The tires that you choose for your motorcycle will affect its performance, grip and handling as well as how long it lasts. They’re a vital part of the bike and can be very expensive so it’s worth taking your time and getting to know what’s recommended for you and your specific machine.
Pirelli offers a variety of tires for use in various conditions and for different needs. For example, everyday riders who use their bikes on city roads will find that Pirelli offers a range of tire options that are perfect for them.
Transmission fluid is a vital part of your bike’s drivetrain. Unlike engine oil, which only protects engine components from wear, transmission fluid also helps facilitate gear shifts, cools the transmission and lubricates moving parts.
As your vehicle’s transmission ages, its fluid deteriorates. That’s why it’s important to change your transmission fluid regularly.
A good rule of thumb is to change your fluid every 30,000-150,000 miles. However, the actual timing of your transmission fluid changes will depend on the type of driving you do.
