When you have a motorcycle, the best thing to do to make it last is to have it maintained and cleaned of course.

1. First and foremost, know what is the correct tire pressure for your
motor bike - this piece of information can usually be found under the
seat of the motor cycle or the user manual provided by the motor bike

2. Using the correct pressure recommended by the motor bike
manufacturer is very important as the pressure. This is in contrast to
the information that is stated (by the tire manufacturer) on the tire
sidewall, which indicates the maximum pressure allowed for the tire -
and it therefore does not take into consideration the other
characteristics of your motor bike, such as weight, handling
characteristics etc, information which your motorbike manufacturer will

Do note that the above information applies to OEM
(original equipment manufacturer) tires. If you are not going to use
the OEM tires, you will probably have to consult the tire manufacturer
for the right tire pressure to use.

3. It is important to check your tire pressure when it is 'cold' -
meaning it has been in the rested state for at least 3 hours. This is
because tire can 'heat up' quite considerably, especially when going a
high speed.

4. Unlike for cars, which the recommended interval of checking tire
pressure is once a month, motor cycle tire manufacturers recommend
checking tire pressure of your motor bike at least once a week.

5. Some professionals even recommend checking tire pressures daily,
especially if you are going on long a trip. Do note that every 1 psi
difference is equivalent to about sixty to seventy pounds of load
bearing capacity.

6. Another important factor to consider is that you will have to do a
check whenever there is a change in the temperature. A sudden drastic
drop in temperature will almost immediately make your motorcycle tires

7. Checking your motorcycle tire pressure right before making a long trip is also a good practice.

you may follow these tips or not, but i can assure that this will make you motorbike healthy
live to ride
