by 360power Sports 360 Power Sports

We all love our moped, particularly when they’re new and shiny. However, with continuous use, the performance of your moped will reduce and you might end up with a non-functional scooter if you don’t take care of it on a regular basis. Listed below are some basic maintenance tips which you’d like to take into account to make the most of your scooter.

  1. Keep it clean:

This should be your first priority. No doubt you can polish & wax it but that shouldn’t be a regular job to do. Nevertheless, keeping it clean is vital to avoid rust & other ugly builds. All you require is a water hose & some soap. Ensure to wash as scrupulously as feasible and avoid watering engine elements such as the air filter, etc. too much. However, one most important thing people often forget to do after cleaning their moped is taking a ride once they are done. When hosing down your moped, water ends up in the most awkward parts of your vehicle. When you take it for a ride the fresh air helps to fade away that water and prevents corrosion on the engine and frame.

  1. Replace your brake pads:

Always ensure that your brake pads are in good state and not below 1.5mm. Check after every 5000 kilometers ride & more often relying on your riding style.

  1. Maintain your air filter:

The air filter in your moped makes sure that your engine is fed the appropriate amount of air & also helps to keep this air cleaner. Approximately all air filters employ a special filter oil to keep dust out of your engine. Ensure to clean the filter regularly & apply filter oil if needed.

  1. Clean & replace your spark plug regularly:

The spark plug in a 2-stroke engine is a high-performance part, particularly when running a tuned engine it requires to ignite more 10,000 times per minute. Ensure to examine the spark plug on a regular basis (every 500-1000 kilometers) and clean it with a metal brush.

  1. Check your liquids:

Liquids include cooling liquid, engine oil, transmission oil, brake, and battery fluid. Ensure to check these fluids on a regular interval.

  1. Clean your carburetor:

Relying on the condition of your air filter you must clean your carburetor regularly. There’s special cleaner available for carburetor but you can also use soapy water & some alcohol. Never use lemon acid, as this can dry the cast and make it break down.

Whether you already own a moped or looking for Moped For Sale in Dallas, keeping these above-mentioned points in mind will definitely help you get the most of your investment.
