Hot Weather Riding

 


HOT WEATHER RIDING PLACES HEAVY DEMANDS ON YOUR MOTORCYCLE.

HEAT PUTS A LOT OF STRAIN ON YOUR BIKE'S POWER TRAIN, THEREFORE IT'S IMPORTANT TO DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO PROTECT YOUR BIKE. 

HARLEY TOURING BIKES ARE AIR COOLED SO ONCE THE AMBIENT AIR TEMPERATURE REACHES 60 DEGREES FARENHEIT, IT'S RECOMMENDED TO REMOVE THE BIKE’S FAIRING LOWERS TO ALLOW FOR COOLER AIR FLOW.

DURING HOT WEATHER RIDING, BE SURE TO CHANGE THE PRIMARY CHAIN CASE FLUID MORE OFTEN BECAUSE THE OIL HELPS COOL THE STATOR WINDINGS.

CHANGE THE OIL FREQUENTLY:  OIL CONTAMINANTS CAUSE OVERHEATING.  CLEAN OIL COOLS BETTER.

USING AN OIL COOLER IS RECOMMENDED AS IT CAN REDUCE ENGINE OIL TEMPERATURES AS MUCH AS 25 DEGREES.

CHANGING THE ENGINE OIL TO A SYNTHETIC HELPS BECAUSE THIS TYPE OF OIL BONDS MOLECULARLY TO ENGINE PARTS, THUS REDUCING FRICTION AND THE RESULTING HEAT.

DURING HOT WEATHER IT'S EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO MONITOR TIRE PRESSURE SINCE HOT ROADS & LOW TIRE PRESSURES INCREASE TIRE HEAT.  CORRECT TIRE PRESSURES WILL HELP INSURE THAT TIRES OPERATE AT THE TEMPERATURE RANGES RECOMMENDED BY THE TIRE MANUFACTURERS.

REMEMBER TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF AS WELL:  HOT WEATHER RIDING CAN CAUSE DEHYDRATION FASTER.  STOP OFTEN ENOUGH TO DRINK PLENTY OF WATER.  BESIDES, STOPPING & TALKING WITH OTHER RIDERS IS PART OF THE FUN OF RIDING.
