Motorbikes are becoming increasingly popular with young people as a means of transport for speed and excitement.
However, many people know very little about motorbike maintenance techniques, and many of them are told by others, unaware of the fact that motorbike technology has progressed so much and many of the so-called techniques are no longer applicable. Do motorbikes need to be warmed up in winter?
There is still a lot of confusion about the issue of warming up a motorbike in winter, and there are different points of contention on the internet. Some motorcyclists think it is necessary, if the motorbike does not warm up, in addition to the difficulty of starting, may also lead to midway stalling, but also many enthusiasts said that warming up the car is purely a waste of time, adding fuel consumption and not much use, so about the motorbike winter start car, or not to warm up?
The answer to this question is yes. The answer to this question is yes. Nowadays, motorbikes are not warmed up in the traditional sense, but rather at a slow speed. What is a slow warm-up? It means that in addition to warming up in place, you also need to ride slowly for a period of time to warm up the bike at the start. In cold winter weather, if you start directly from cold, even though the throttle goes up, there is a chance that the vehicle will not be able to keep up with the speed, equivalent to the speed of the motorbike to keep up with the state, why is this?
Why is this? In the cold winter, the oil in the gearbox is in a relatively condensed state and the flow is not very good, so in order to protect the gearbox, the motorbike does not reach an optimal state and therefore needs to be warmed up for a while. So, why add a slow warm-up? It is mainly for the tyres, which are colder and harder at the start, and the whole motorbike drops a lot. The slow warm-up stage also has the function of heating the tyres, which can increase the friction of the car and prevent it from skidding.
Therefore, if you want to ride a motorbike in winter, you must warm it up, and you must do so at a slow speed. My experience is that when I ride a motorbike in winter, I warm it up for 5 minutes and then ride it at a slow speed for 5 minutes, with the help of a tire warmer. That way the bike is in good condition. What do you think of this?
