Inspect Your Bike
Updated On: Jan 14, 2010
While more detailed inspection and maintenance practices can be found at  motorcycle maintenance, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's T-CLOCS method is an efficient way to inspect your bike before traveling:
  • T: Tires.
    Make sure both tires are properly inflated, using an air pressure monitor that you bring with you on rides. Don't risk riding on tires that might need replacement; if suspect a tire will not last long enough for a ride, have it replaced.
  • C: Controls.
    Are your cables (clutch and brakes) and controls intact and working?
  • L: Lights.
    Make sure your headlights (high & low beam), turn signals, and brake lights work.
  • O: Oils & fluids.
    Check everything from engine oil and coolant to brake fluid.
  • C: Chassis.
    Ensure that the frame, suspension, chain, and fasteners are all secure and intact.
  • S: Stands.
    Make sure the center stand and/or side stand isn't cracked or bent, and that springs properly hold the assembly away from the pavement when stowed.
For a more detailed, downloadable inspection checklist, go to the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's website.
