Motorcycle owners know that regular maintenance is key to keeping their bikes on the road. While tinkering with your bike in the shop can be fun, it’s not as enjoyable as taking it out on the road or off-road. With proper and regular care, a good motorcycle can last for decades. On the other hand, if a bike isn’t properly maintained, it can result in a litany of problems that all involve expensive fixes to get you back on the road.
If you’re looking for the best in motorcycle servicing in Melbourne, you want to bring your bike to Mid Life Cycles.

We are also the largest Royal Enfield store in Australia and can show you all the newest models in a variety of styles and looks.
One of the most important things you can do to keep your bike in top working order is to change the oil regularly. While many manufacturers recommended that you do it every 5000 to 8000 kilometres, it depends on the kind of bike you’re riding. Many bikes, especially older ones or custom-built bikes, benefit from an oil change every 4000 kilometres.
Don’t forget about your tyres. Since tyres can remain unused for long periods of time and sit through inclement weather, you should check them regularly including before going for a ride. Even with low-use and with the tread looking in good shape, tyres can crack and cause a failure which can have severe consequences for both the bike and the rider.
You should also check your brakes and lights before you take your bike out. Also, regularly inspect the motorcycle chain’s tension and level of lubrication. Getting a good workshop, like Mid Life Cycles, to do a complete check on your bike if it’s been long layoff is a smart safety measure.
