Dec 15: Off-season Bike Maintenance - Beyond the Track meeting

Most riders in the North hemisphere are currently in their off-season and can't get much track riding. With all the downtime, this is a great opportunity to do some bike maintenance and make sure it's ready to go when the next season starts.

Some riders may have just made up their mind and are decided to do their first track day. Others may have just finished their first season of track riding, started to get faster, and are looking forward to continuing their progress next year. And last but not least, there are the riders who are already pushing their bikes to higher levels, racing and/or riding in the advanced group.

Whatever the case might be, a bike needs maintenance for both safety and performance.

In this meeting, coach Shaun Nielsen is back to share his mechanical tips, so we all know what the common bike maintenance jobs are for the off-season.

Check out Shaun's great post on this topic!

And join us tomorrow at 6:30pm:

Great topic!
Suspension must get refreshed every year.
Brake calipers cleaned and replaced the fluid and pads if needed
Check the wheel bearings
Torque all the exposed bolts and use locktite on the ones that comes lose often
Lube and clean all parts and get ready to winterize it if needed
Check and test tire warmers, lap timer, Transponder, scanner radio and all the track tools such as compressor (empty the water), easy up tent, chairs, cooler, extension cords, mats, cones, gas jugs, trailer brakes and bearings, trailer lights and straps.
Get your suit washed!!! and repaired if needed...
Maybe be a good idea to put fuel stabilizer into the generator and change the oil!!!
