The Importance of Dirt Bike, Quad or UTV Maintenance
Preventative maintenance is an underrated part of owning a dirtbike, quad or UTV but its importance cannot be overstated. This is particularly important after high-use periods such as school and family holidays, or mustering season.
Here are just some of the reasons:
1. Regular maintenance can help extend the life of your dirt bike, quad or UTV
If you’re a dirt biker, quad, or side by side driver then you know that the performance and life of your vehicle is highly dependent on how well it’s cared for. Regular maintenance not only helps to extend the life of your vehicle but can also help ensure a smooth ride every time out. If you want to keep going faster and further than regular maintenance is an absolute must.
2. Maintenance is important because it helps prevent problems like engine failure
There’s nothing worse than trying to ride a dirt bike that won’t start. Unfortunately, this is something we all have to deal with every once in a while. If you’re having problems with your dirtbike not starting up, it may be time for some maintenance and repairs. Fixing the problem now means less downtime and more fun later on.
3. When you take care of your dirt bike, quad or UTV regularly, you’re more likely to avoid costly repairs and downtime
For instance, checking tire pressure once a week can help prevent flats which inevitably slow down your riding time. Additionally, keeping an eye on the brake pads will ensure that they aren’t worn past their useful life before replacement is necessary—which can be costly if you’re out in the middle of nowhere! And finally, taking care of small issues now rather than having them become major problems later will save money over time.
4. Your safety depends on a properly maintained dirt bike, quad or UTV – that’s why we recommend keeping up with regular maintenance
Many people are unaware of the importance of regular dirt bike maintenance. Dirt Bikes are known for their speed and durability, but if they aren’t maintained, you could be putting yourself at risk without even knowing it. It may seem like a hassle, but periodic cleaning and oiling of the engine will keep it from seizing up on you when you need it most. You also won’t have to worry about things like broken chains or sprockets since all those parts are taken care of as well.
5. It’s also important to have routine cleaning done so you don’t risk damaging the frame of your vehicle by driving over debris on the road
A regular dirt bike cleaning regimen can help to prevent damage that may lead to frame failure. Dirt bikes are machines and all machinery needs some TLC, especially if it is ridden in conditions where mud and dust is prevalent.
Regularly washing the bike will remove any contaminants that may build up over time and cause rust or corrosion which can weaken the integrity of your machine. A well maintained dirt bike will last longer than one with neglected maintenance so it’s worth taking a little bit of time to clean it regularly.
