Motorcycle Maitenance for Long trip - DIY Tips

Motorcycle Maintenance for Long Trips - Do it Yourself Tips

In this video I am going to show you what you have to do before your next long motorcycle trip. When I said
long I mean more 10,000km or more. The easiest way, is to drop the bike in the local garage and they will
make everything for you. That’s great, but here in Germany, this service will cost me more than 1,000 euro.
This is a lot of money, actually this is half of the budget for my next long trip. I know what you going to say now
"It’s easy for you, but I don’t know how to do it!" Just calm down, you don’t need to be real mechanic to make
some do it yourself maintenance. Most of the things I am going to show you are very easy to do it, if you just
read your manual.  Let’s go to the bike and I am going to show you what I mean.

Motorcycle Maintenance is not something we love, but we have to do it if we would like to travel without
problems. Most of you guys, imagine it as very difficult and expensive procedure. The truth is far away from
that. Actually, most of the things, you can do by yourself. In this video I will show you, how to change the
wheel bearings on your motorcycle without spending any money. To do so, you don’t need any special tools
or place. In fact, I am going to do it on the car parking, right in front of my building.


Motorcycle Maintenance - Fork Seals Replacement – How to do it?

In this video I am going to show you how to change the fork seals. I have plans to do it in the local garage.
Unfortunately they don’t have the seals. It needs to be ordered and the earliest time to have it was Tuesday.
Which is meaning that I can’t ride my motorcycle until Wednesday. I tried in two more garages, but was there
was even worse, they asked me to wait one week or more. I can’t wait so long and I decide to do it myself.
I research online for shop for seals. I found one, about an hour away from Berlin and immediately went there.
I was on hurry, because it was Friday afternoon and I don’t want to miss them. I was lucky, as usual to catch
them in last minute and bought the seals. I am not going to show you in details, because all motorcycles
have got different forks, but the basic is the same and yes, you can do it by yourself.
