 This July 18-19th at the Hallett Motor Racing Circuit in Jennings, OK will coincide their Motorcycle Lapping Days and MCRA Racing. It’s a great opportunity to race your bike, improve your skills, and watch the pros in action. Before you do, you’ll want to make sure your bike is in top shape. Here are some motorcycle performance tips for getting you there.

Tire Inflation & Tread

If your tires are too full, it makes the bike harder to handle. If they are too low on air, it affects handling and fuel efficiency. For most purposes, 34 to 38 psi (Pounds per Square Inch) is ideal. Check tread for heavy or uneven wear, which will also hinder handling.

Throttle Cable

Adjust your throttle cable’s length for optimal performance. If it’s too loose, there will be response delay to your motor. If it’s too tight, your motor will respond too quickly and make it more difficult to control.

Lubrication

Frequently lubricate control pivots and cables, replacing any that are worn. Also clean, adjust, and oil your chain. Dirty chains cause poor handling and lower horsepower. Loose chains break easily.

Balance Suspension

To improve handling, make sure the front and rear suspensions are balanced.

Use the Right Oil

You will want to use a synthetic oil that is motorcycle-specific to protect from the harsh conditions of racing. Use a high-grade filter as well to keep the engine running cool and clean. 

If you’re taking your motorcycle out to the track this summer, or just riding around town, you will want to contact USA Synthetics in Oklahoma City. They offer AMSOIL synthetic oils, filters, suspensions, and more. Shop for all of these products online or give them a call at (405) 388-6170.
