Riding season is almost upon us, but you still have time to make a few upgrades before the weather is right. Use the last of this winter weather as an excuse to modify those parts on your bike that could use an update.
Whether it's checking for recalls, adding new parts, or any other form of maintenance, take advantage of the last bit of winter weather to work on upgrading your bike.
Hopefully, you're keeping an eye out for recalls all year round, but the off-season is a great time to double check the recall lists. If you have any other mechanical fixes, these winter months might be a great time to visit a mechanic.
Be sure to check the National Highway and Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA.gov) to find recent motorcycle recalls and other great information for safe riding.
As you add new parts to your bike, remember to understand the risks involved with customizing your motorcycle. By applying new or different parts, you might be changing the balance of your bike or possibly voiding its warranty.
Not to mention, the parts that you add have the risk of being defective or faulty. This can lead to serious accidents and injuries. Also, make sure to have a professional install your parts. They'll know exactly what to look for when adding new items.
"In like a lion, out like a lamb" – that's what they say about March. So take advantage of the last weeks of winter downtime and add some updates to your bike. However, it's always smart to consult a mechanic if you plan to change any of the key components on your bike.
