As one of the most important components of the motorcycle, engine lubrication needs to be checked every 1,000 kilometers driven. This care extends the service life of parts, since the oil is intended to prevent excessive wear and reduce friction.
Follow your Harley-Davidson manual with the oil specifications for your model and the deadline for replacement.
Tires and wheels
Preventive tire maintenance should be done every 15 days at most. This care includes simply checking with the naked eye the surface conditions of each tire, such as the presence of nails, as well as the calibration, always with a cold tire.
In addition, checking the wheels is a way to prevent air leakage due to cracking or other damage.
Always be aware of the condition of the cables and if they are connected. The durability of these components can be increased by using fine oil.
