Motorcycle Problems That Happen Very Often . Now there are some things that almost ever motorcyclist or mechanic around the nation has run into. There are some things that happen to almost every motorcycle at some point or another. Here is a list of motorcycle problems that we compiled when we spoke to mechanics about the most common problems that motorcyclists come to them with: Fuel contamination: This was named as one of the most common problems related to motorcycles and scooters. This problem occurs when they are not used enough (basically used less than 25 miles per week) – that means that the gas will just sit in the engine and begin to get clogged. A good way to avoid this problem is to add fuel stabilizer to the gas when you refill, so that it prevents clogging.. Premature tire wear: This occurs when you fail to do regular checks and run the appropriate tire pressure. A good idea would be to consult your owner’s manual for information concerning this. You should also be concerned about riding with load and with passengers too. It’ also a good idea to have your tires replaced every 3 years, no matter the mileage.. Forgotten batteries: Insufficient usage of your motorcycle may cause you to have to do a battery charge up. You may have to do this if you don’t use your motorcycle for at least 5 hours a week (or 25 miles). Every time you’re finished with the machine, within the first day or two you should hook it up to a tender or a charger.. Failing to read the owner’s manual: This is a big deal, though you may not think much of it, because of your history with motorcycles or your knack for figuring things out on your own. Follow the operation instructions and the maintenance schedule given by the manual and you’ll have a better idea of how to care for your motorcycle.. You can come to us for help.
