As an essential part of motorcycle engine, oil mainly plays the role of sealing, cooling, cleaning, lubricating and buffering. However, the performance of the oil will decrease as the usage time increases. Under such a premise, it needs to be replaced, otherwise the engine will overheat, abnormal noise, power drop and so on.
The simplest and most intuitive criterion for oil change is the number of kilometers driven by the reference vehicle. Because when the vehicle travels to a certain number of kilometers, the performance of the oil will decrease, which can be queried with data.
Under normal circumstances, it is replaced once every 500km during the running-in period, and it can be replaced every 1,000 kilometers after that, and it is basically replaced once every 2,000 to 5,000 km until the end of the running-in period.
In addition to the reference kilometers, the replacement of oil needs to be judged according to the quality of the selected lubricating oil. This is the main reason why the number of kilometers replaced after the running-in period is different. Usually, the minerals must be replaced every 2000km, while the full synthetic can be extended to 5000km.
In addition, there is an important reference standard is the oil addition time. This item is not important for normal driving motorcycles, but for stop-and-go or low-frequency motorcycles, just looking at the quality of the oil and the number of kilometers used will delay the replacement time of the lubricant. Therefore, under normal circumstances, no matter what quality of lubricating oil is added, it is best to replace it once every six months, otherwise the most basic lubrication requirements of the engine will not be met.
As can be seen from the above introduction, to judge whether the motorcycle lubricant needs to be replaced, the main reference is the number of kilometers driven, and then the quality of the lubricant and the addition time. Only in this way can the vehicle be properly maintained.
However, there are some special cases in this process. If the oil is emulsified or increased or decreased, it is necessary to replace the lubricating oil in advance, because if it continues to be used, it will only cause unnecessary wear and tear of the engine, so it is necessary to regularly check the amount and color of the lubricating oil. Only in this way can the oil be normal protect the engine.
When adding oil, it must be added according to the scale displayed on the oil dipstick on the engine. Adding too much may cause the engine to be weak and smoking; adding too little may not improve the effect.
Taking comprehensive consideration and careful maintenance, your motorcycle can be more durable and reduce the probability of failure and maintenance costs.
