Tip: It is a good Mechanic practice, to carry a tire pressure gauge on you at all times. A low pressure gauge is best for testing Motorcycles and ATV's.
It is best to check tire pressure when tires are cool. To ensure you put the correct amount of pressure in the tire, search on the side wall of the tire for the correct reccomended PSI (pounds/sq inch).
With regard to tire tread, it is good to change if you only have1-2mm of tread remaining. It's better to be safe than sorry.
Tip: It is a good idea to replace brake fluid every couple of years. You should check your brake fluid regularly. Be sure to cover all painted surfaces before you add because brake fluid is corrosive.
Brake fluid absorbs moisture over time, and becomes less effective, so it is best to use a new bottle.
Also check brake pads often to make sure there is still pad, if it gets down to steel you ruin your rotors.
Tip: It is best to lube a chain after riding, this way the chain is nice and warmed up allowing the lube to seep and penatrate into the chain links. Be sure to spray on the top inside of the chain on the area that will be touching the sprockets.
Chains should never be fully taught, you should try to have 3/4" - 1 1/4" clearance for when the suspension is engaged.
When sprockets or chains become worn, it is best to change them as a set because if you do one and not the other, one will wear the other out and vice versa.
Tip: Driving your vehicle frequently will help maintain a battery. If you ever plan on letting your vehicle sit without using it for any period longer than a couple weeks, it is a good idea to use a battery tender.
Battery tender's unlike a trickle charger will kick off after the battery is charged and maintain a battery's charge. The battery is usually located below the seat on ATV's and motorcycles. Hook the red to the positive, black to negative and make sure the contacts are clean and free of corrosion, a pice of scotch brite or a wire brush work great for cleaning contacts.
Tip: It is good to change the oil on your motorcycle, ATV or snomobile following the reccomended mileage in your owner's manual. It is best to first warm up the vehicle so the oil is less viscous allowing it to drain easier. Be sure to add correct type of oil also found in your owner's manual. Using a synthetic oil can help lengthen the life of your motor. Oil is essential for cooling and for keeping gears from grinding together, so always make sure to check your oil before each ride.
Be sure to add slowly checking the levels as you go, do not over fill.
Tip: It is essential to keep a clean air box and air filter. This ensures that dirt and dust doesn't enter the carburetor which would affect your vehicle's performance.
If a filter is dirty, be sure to clean it by washing it out really well with dish soap and water. Rinse and ring it out really well and then add oil filter oil to the filter squeezing it in to displace any remaining water. The filter in the picture is a nice clean filter, keep your's the same and your vehicle will perform better.
Tip: Fuel you get at a gas station today has a lot of alcohol in it. Fuel sitting in a gas tank can go bad in less than a month. It is a good idea to treat gasoline with a fuel enzyme or some sort of fuel treatment to keep fuel from varnishing.
With Startron fuel enzyme (shown in picture) 1 oz bottle can treat up to 6 gallons of fuel. If you ever plan to leave your vehicle sitting with out use for any period of time, it's best to use a fuel additive. This will help to prevent gasoline from varnishing and turning green in the carburetor.
Tip: If you ever plan on letting your vehicle sit without use for a period of 2 weeks or longer, it can be beneficial to either use a fuel additive, or shut off the fuel on the petcock valve and run the vehicle till it runs out of gas.
Another great idea, is to winterize your vehicle during the off season, or if you know you won't be riding. A simple method is, after following the step above, take a screw driver and loosen the drain screw located on the bottom of the carburetor. This gets any of the remaining fuel out, keeping your carburetor clean.
