    How to maintain the Motorcycle brakes?

    The safety of the bike rider depends upon the condition and the functioning of the bike. Bikes have two wheels that are separately controlled by two braking units. Let us know all about it.
  • Disc Brakes - Motorcycles have front and rear disc brakes. You need to check the remaining braking fluid in the brake fluid reservoir. This fluid reservoir is usually near the handlebar (for the front disc brake) or behind the heel plate near the rider's foot peg (for the rear disc brake). Make sure that the brake fluid is always on the correct level.
  • Brake Pads- You should check the brake pads regularly. Immediately change the brake pad if it is thinner than 3mm.
  • Drum Brakes - The modern bikes today do not have drum brakes but some of the older bikes still do. It is much needed to get it regularly serviced and to change the brake liners to maintain the grip.  Drum brakes start accumulating the dust particles after some time. Cleaning the same would prevent damages to your motorcycle.

    Get your motorcycle checked at a regular interval if you think that they aren't up to the mark. Take Safety measures, before leaving, wear your helmet, and drive safely.  ​
