How to make your bike go better on the cheap

Nothing is ever free is it? No – but some things come pretty damn close. After laying out for the price of a bike and all the associated riding gear, anything which helps boost the bike’s and the rider’s performance with the investment of a few minutes’ time, or a few quid, has to be worth it. Are we talking ...

How to keep your tyres in good health

But there’s nothing to look after on a tyre… Not true. Imagine what would happen if one of your tyres failed to work at 70mph. Anything that keeps tyres in tip-top condition is worth every penny or second of your time. Taking a good look at both tyres when you lube the chain is an easy way of maintaining their ...

How to buy riding kit that fits

What should I look for when buying gear? When it comes to leather, it will eventually break in to become comfortable. It becomes so because it stretches or the material breaks down from continual wear. So if a pair of gloves are loose in the first place then they can soon become uncomfortable. In the case of helmets, a loose ...

How to prepare your bike for winter

Make an early start Winter roads gritting and low temperatures that cause condensation and allow moisture to hang around is a perfect recipe for corrosion. Your bike will constantly be under attack from the elements – unless you mothball it for winter. But that’s too dull to contemplate, so instead fight back. With a little preparation, it’s possible to protect your machine from ...

How to check & replace brake discs

My discs look OK, so why check them? Looks can be deceiving. It’s not only high mileage bikes that will suffer from worn or damaged discs – today’s sports bikes can suffer just as badly if regularly used to the limits of their design. Trackdays, for instance, are killers of discs as constant hard braking exaggerates wear and tear, leads ...

How to keep warm in cold weather

Wrap up well, ride well Staying warm while riding is important. Cold affects concentration; it also induces tension and inhibits mobility. But if you’re warm and comfy, it’s possible to enjoy year-round riding, whether commuting to work or taking an out-of-season tour. Good vision is equally important, so you’ll need to address the issues of visor misting and crud accumulation. ...

How to balance your wheels

Do modern wheels still need balancing then? However precise the manufacture of wheels, tyres and discs is, mass-production means no item is perfect. Tyres and wheels can be out of alignment, out of shape, or have heavy spots on the rim of the wheel or tyre. How can I tell if my wheel is unbalanced? The problem is unequal weight ...

How to lube and protect your bike

Why bother? The importance of this job can’t be overestimated. Over a period of time – not long with the UK’s weather – various components and controls stiffen and then seize. It could be from dry, wet, and winter conditions, or simply from overuse. Anything which can and should be lubricated needs to be. Regularly. Remember: prevention is always better ...

How to service your brake calipers

Why bother? Because it could save your life. Most routine services don’t include cleaning and servicing the calipers unless the brake pads need changing or there happens to be a problem with them such as a partially sticking piston, or worse, a totally seized one. It pays to look after not only the shiny bits the eye can see, but ...

How to change your engine oil and filter

Why bother? Oil breaks down, it loses its viscosity from excessive heat. It also gets contaminated from unburned fuel and debris such as clutch plate material and swarf from meshing gears. The oil filter is there to remove as much of this rubbish as possible and therefore needs changing, too. What you’ll be dealing with An oil filter which in ...
