Winter Maintenance Motorcycle

To improve cross-use special tires e tread, use a special circuit, "bracelets" on the drive wheels. Winter maintenance motorcycle greatly hampered by heavy traffic conditions and low temperatures. Storing bikes in the open air or in unheated premises associated with additional activities, providing reliable operation of motorcycles. Possible disruptions in the supply of fuel due to the freezing of water trapped in the fuel tank and fuel lines. Declining performance batteries and reduced elasticity of motorcycle tires. Subcooling engine affects mixing, increases fuel consumption, reduces engine power and dramatically increases the wear of its parts.

Driving a motorcycle in the winter is complicated by the deterioration of adhesion to the road wheels, increasing the resistance to movement off the road and the presence of the snow hidden obstacles (pits, ditches, stumps, rocks, etc.).
