Winter Bike Maintenance

December 8, 2012 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Its time to get your bike ready for next years riding. If you have never seen a bike with all the important parts removed come on down and have a look. We’ll go over the swingarm, wheel and steering head service.

We will serve coffee & doughnuts in the morning and hot dogs for lunch, along with the Happy Trail bottomless coffee pot.

Happy Trails Tech Days – a good way to stay warm on a cold day and learn something valuable for next year’s riding.

 9:15 Presentation

12:00 Lunch (hot dogs and coffee)

Some points to consider:

Every year we use our motorcycles from early spring till late fall. Some with little to no maintenance, others doing little more than lubing the chain, cleaning the air filter, changing the oil and filter.

Over the years we have put on several clinics in the early winter to cover the things that most riders fail to take care of. We have seen KLR, DR and DRZ swing arm bolts that had to be destroyed to remove them, water and grime causing corrosion which made removing them impossible.

The rear suspension needs to be cleaned and lubed; wheel and steering head bearings should be checked and lubed. You might say, “Hey my bike is new and does not need it for awhile.” It is our experience no matter what the bike, is there is a universal lack of lubrication from the factory.

Most every bike out there has the same general points that need to be covered. So no matter what bike you ride the information that you take away will be good.
