When it comes to looking after your KTM, there are a few steps you need to take to have it ready for your next adventure.
It starts with a good clean. Part of maintaining a motorcycle is about keeping it clean. This prevents the dirt and grime from getting into places it shouldn’t, which will only cause rust. Pressure washing your KTM will ensure you don’t have to replace parts more often than you absolutely need to and this alone will save you a ton of time and money.
Check your tyres. Check your tyre pressure regularly – this not only prevents wear and tear, but it will also save you money on fuel. If you’re going off road on softer sand, you’ll be reducing your tyre pressure of course so that you have more of a contact patch to work with.
Your brakes. Replace your brake pads when they need to be replaced – don’t try to make them last longer or you could be putting yourself at risk just to save a few bucks. When the time comes to replace them, invest in good quality products, like our KTM power parts brake disks and pads. Don’t forget, though, that it’s not just the brakes themselves that need replacing every so often – you also need to ensure you top up on brake fluid when the situation calls for it.
Chain it right. Your chain should never be too lose or too tight. You might notice that some riders pay little or no attention to their chain and this not only reduces their mileage but could also result in the chain coming off entirely or snapping due to the increased tension. Always check the owner’s manual before deciding how much tension your chain requires. If you’re looking for an upgrade, you can also opt to alter the gearing ratio by changing the size of the sprockets – either the rear or the front – and this will increase the power output.
Short term purchases for long term benefits. Your comfort can be greatly increased by taking a few simple steps, like opting for a quality KTM seat cover. A durable seat cover protects your actual seat, preventing it from cracking and falling apart. In the long, a small investment will likely end up saving you quite a bit of money.
Air filters. Checking and changing air filters is something you need to do every time you check your oil levels, and when the time comes to replace them, you’ll likely find that you have a wide variety of options available, including paper, foam and cotton filters. Each of these needs to be handled somewhat differently, so if you’re doing it yourself, make sure that you are prepared for the task at hand.
Taking care of your ride is simple when you know what parts you need and where to get them. Remember, the more you put in, the more you’ll get out of your ride.
