A sprocket is a profiled wheel with teeth that meshes with a chain, track or other perforated or indented material. It is distinguished from a gear in that sprockets are never meshed together directly, and from a pulley by not usually having a flange at each side.

Sprockets are used in bicycles, motorcycles, cars, tanks, and other machinery either to transmit rotary motion between two shafts where gears are unsuitable or to impart linear motion to a track, tape etc.

Well, today’s motorcycle come with very high reliability which may leave you with no clue, how to maintain or repair it. But even your best motorcycle need some basic maintenance for safety and good performance.

Here is 5 basic tips to maintain your motorcycle:

  1. Breaks:Make sure your bike’s brake fluid reservoirs are checked regularly. To increase performance of the breaks, you can install new braided steel brake lines instead of the stock ones.
  2. Tires: Keep your tires correctly inflated and check the pressure regularly. Get a pencil-type tire gauge and use it regularly until you instinctively ‘know’ what your tires feel like when correctly inflated.
  3. Final Drive: what transfers the power from the transmission to the rear wheel is essential to the well being of your bike and can be very expensive if not maintain properly.

  4. Oil: Change your oil every 10k miles. Clean fresh oil makes the engine last for a long time. Check and keep your oil level close to maximum level all the time.
  5. Battery: about once a month, make sure the battery is charged to 100%. A motorcycle battery will loose 1% of its charge even if the bike just stands in your garage.

1. Find some good source of vintage motorcycle parts . See online stores where you can get all the parts for customization.

2. The size of your parts should be matching with the motorcycle parts. For example measure properly the seat diameter, frame size etc.

3. Before restoring, check the rust on the frame. Clean the rust properly, however some rust can be ok but more can cause pitting problem. Now coat the parts with the rustproofing spray so that you can prevent further rusting.

4. Buy all the new components preferably from the same manufacturer so that the parts are compatible because if you are restoring your motorcycle with different years and models may create some compatibility problem.

5. At the end some detailed research is needed of your motorcycle model before you give some finishing touch so that the motorcycle you have customized according to your style is not completely different from the original model.

light weight racing battery

light weight racing battery

Have you ever wondered how your motorcycle battery works? Motorcycle batteries are relatively expensive and small as compared to car batteries. To maintain your battery well, lets get to know how does it actually  works!

A motorcycle battery consists of six cell each containing positive & negative plates. The cell has 2 volts each, total providing 12 volts necessary to power your motorcycle.

The lead cells are submersed in sulfuric acids to generate electricity through chemical reaction.Sparked by the starter, the battery allows the engine to start and powers your peripherals–like CBs and satellite radios.

braille-light-weight-battery

The current is generated when electrons from the battery acid interact with the lead cells. Hydrogen particles from the acid provide the cells with protons while the sulfate ions provide negative electrons.

The residual sulfate begins to cover the battery cells and forms a barrier between the cells and the remaining acid–reducing the ability of acid to charge the cells. The charged cells pour out of the negative terminal of the battery and travel the motorcycle’s circuit, powering the motor and peripherals, and then they return through the positive terminal of the battery.

There are different types of batteries depending upon the motorcycle you riding. You may be riding a traditional motorcycle or a street motorcycle or your classic vintage motorcycle. If you are vintage motorcycle enthusiast and love to go for racing, then here is the braille light weight racing battery, best suitable for your motorcycle.
