really?? thats wierd. I fill my tires to 320psi with bel-ray waterproof bearing grease. it carries the same weight concept, but also acts as a damper, and it keeps a constant flow of fresh grease seeping through the rims into the wheel bearings.I fill my tires with oil. Heavier tires = better traction. Plus if they get punctured, the oil comes out much more slowly than air would.
There is nothing wrong with taking the bike to your dealer for maintenance, Kumzme.I was worried because its all new to me .. I filled an entire Mobil 20W-50 oil bottle[Suggested 15W-50]. Am not able to recollect how much, but it cost me 6$ in the gas station. This is apart from whatever Oil left from previous change - which I did not see. I did not know how to see, mistakenly assumed its empty by leaning the bike and saw the oil level as empty. Then I rode it for half a mile, kept on idling for few minutes to check oil level. And then stopped it and took it to the Dealer for oil change.
Thanks Mate !!!There is nothing wrong with taking the bike to your dealer for maintenance, Kumzme.
Ask them to show you how to check a few things like oil, tires, and chain.
I could be wrong but I get the impression you don't know a lot about motorbikes.
This is a good place to do research or ask questions.
You may PM me if you need to. As long as it's the simple stuff I can help.
