A motorcycle is a two or three-wheeled dirt bike repairs vehicle steered by a handlebar from a saddle-style seat. Its gasoline engine converts reciprocating motion into rotary motion to propel the bike forward, much like a car engine does. A transmission system translates the rotational motion of the rear wheel to the front wheel, and two hand levers enable the rider to operate the clutch and the front brake.
What to change when servicing a motorcycle?
Many motorcyclists wear gloves to provide a firm grip on the handlebars and for additional protection from road debris. A helmet is also a good idea to reduce the risk of injury in an accident. A helmet should be of a size to fit comfortably and securely on the head, not too tight or loose, and should offer sufficient coverage around the face, ears, nose, and mouth.
Riders should make a thorough check of their motorcycle prior to riding. This includes checking tires, air pressure, general wear, and tread; checking fluid levels and oil; and making sure the horn is working properly. In addition, riders should be familiar with their mirrors and how to use them. Many motorcycles are equipped with rounded “convex” mirrors, which provide greater visibility but can make objects appear farther away than they actually are.
