No matter what the car, the daily maintenance is the driver's essential common sense, the car run in maintenance is proper, often greatly prolong the service life of the locomotive, reduce the failure rate. Motorcycles and cars need to be repaired and maintained on time, after all, motorcycles are consumables, parts use for a period of time will have a certain degree of wear, so, how to maintain, adjust the car state to the best, has been the ultimate pursuit of motorcycle friends who love cars.
Many netizens asked why the maintenance cycle of motorcycles should be set at an interval of 3-4 thousand kilometers.
When we look at motorcycles, the maintenance distance is really about 3,000 to 4,000 kilometers. This is mainly because many motorcycles use single-cylinder air-cooled engines. The engine, by contrast, is much less efficient than water-cooled cooling. The oil temperature of an air-cooled engine is higher than that of a water-cooled engine, its durability is tested, and it is not at all comparable to that of a fully synthetic oil, so the maintenance interval is relatively short.
So, the question is, do water-cooled engines have better cooling conditions and longer maintenance intervals?
Of course, the cooling performance of the water-cooled engine is indeed very good, but more use of the wet clutch, oil will also become the lubricant of the clutch transmission system, the engine will start the clutch and gearbox itself will also generate heat, so, cooling time is easily insufficient.
The speed of a motorcycle is higher than that of a car. To pay attention to the medium and low rotation output of torque like a car, a motorcycle must realize high output with high speed. The higher the speed of a motorcycle, the higher the temperature of oil, the higher the pressure, so the motorcycle oil change frequency is higher than the car.
If it is a normal air-cooled scooter, the maintenance interval is short, requiring about 1500-2500 km of oil exchange. Motorcycle engines emit more heat, CVT transmission is inefficient, and the number of rotations during takeoff and acceleration is significantly higher than the saddle type, so the oil working environment will be worse.
Admittedly, the daily maintenance of motorcycles is not static, but also must be treated differently according to the specific model, anything is not so absolute. Generally speaking, buy a motorcycle will bring the maintenance manual, there are specific maintenance details, the owner can be based on the above mileage maintenance, maintenance time cut do not miss, otherwise it is very likely to bring different degrees of damage to your car.
