Spring is coming! You’re probably itching to get back on the road with your bike. But before you set out, you need to get your motorcycle road ready again. Read our guide to prepare your bike for spring.

Spring Has Sprung for Your Bike

We covered a guide to help you prepare your bike for the winter months. Well, winter is almost over, and spring is right around the corner. It’s finally time to bring your motorcycle out of storage. Assuming that you haven’t been riding your bike due to the weather, there are some things you need to do to get it ready for the new riding season. It should only take you a couple of hours to get your bike in top shape for a safe ride.

Refresh Your Knowledge

Your owner’s manual should have most (if not all) of the answers to your motorcycle maintenance questions. So if this guide doesn’t cover the specifics you need to prepare your bike, check your owner’s manual. In fact, go over it before you start working just to refresh your knowledge.

Power up

Start your spring maintenance by checking your bike’s source of power, the battery. Remember you’re dealing with a box filled with corrosive acid and fumes, so you need to be cautious.  Carefully disconnect your battery and remove it from the bike.  Wash the battery with fresh water and remove any corrosion with a wire brush. Check the water level, if necessary top it off with distilled water. Charge it for a bit and reinstall it.


Fuel can go stale and lose many of its properties during storage. After only a few months many of the combustible elements evaporate, which can potentially damage your bike next time you run it. Also, while your fuel sits in the tank, it can react with oxygen and create varnish deposits which can clog areas in your fuel system. Lastly, condensation can occur thanks to the weather, and mix with the gasoline, causing even more problems. Hopefully, you used AMSOIL’s Gasoline Stabilizer before storing it, or you drained the fuel. Now all you need to do is empty the tank (if you used a stabilizer) or check it for rust, condensation, or gunk (if you drained it).  Finally, you can refuel the tank.

Time to Get Oily

You probably got a synthetic oil change and a new oil filter when you winterized your bike last year. If not, it’s an excellent idea to change them now.  Some people believe that you should warm up your bike so that all the pollutants in the engine are suspended in the oil. Others think that all the contaminants are already in the oil filter, so you should just remove the filter instead of letting the pollutants back into the oil when you warm it up. Whichever your line of thought may be, an AMSOIL Synthetic Oil change and filter replacement can’t hurt. Don’t get stingy and try to use car oil in your bike. They’re not interchangeable! AMSOIL has lubricants for motorcycles and dirt bikes, as well as cars, racing vehicles, and boats. Call Mooresville Synthetic Oil at (336) 247-0212 to get all your supplies or visit their online store.

Check the Shoes

You should check your tires before every ride. These few square inches of rubber keep your bike safe on the road, so it’s essential that they’re in good shape. Consider that after a few months of rest there might be some flat spots, you will need to fill them up to the right pressure. Check the tire wear as well. It might be time to replace them if they’re too worn. Replace them before spring so you can have good tires for the whole season. Need some tips on choosing the right motorcycle tires?

Refill the Fluids

Oil isn’t the only fluid that your bike needs to stay lubricated. Motorcycle owners tend to forget the importance of the brake fluid. When not in use, the brake fluid tends to absorb moisture from the air and go bad. Needless to say, changing it this spring is a good idea. Ideally, you should flush out the brake system and refill it with new fluid. If you’re not willing to do that, at the very least refill it with AMSOIL’s brake fluid. You should also check that the coolant levels are as they should be. If you want to be extra nice to your bike, do a complete coolant flush as too.
