“A little prevention is worth more than a cure”


“A little prevention is worth more than a cure”. This is a piece of advice that applies to things like our health, security, and of course, dirt bike tyresMaintaining dirt bike tyres regularly can prevent accidents, injuries, and costly repairs.

While there are lots of perks to owning a dirt bike, dirt bike owners also have to ensure they focus strongly on maintenance, to ensure the longevity of their bikes. Although tyres are one of the most fundamental parts of a dirt bike, the tyres are often overlooked when it comes to maintenance.

Ensuring that your tyres are regularly maintained can extend the life of your dirt bike. Keeping your dirt bike tyres in good condition is the most crucial step you can take to avoid hazards when you least expect it. Investing your time in checking your tires before leaving for a ride could not only save you time and money in the future, but could also save you from a serious accident.

Here are some tips you should keep in mind when maintaining dirt bike tyres. Going through this checklist will allow you to take care of your tyres and ensure that they last longer.

Tyre Pressure

Tire pressure is a very common problem with dirt bike tyres. Variations in the temperature can cause tyres to lose pressure and it is important to maintain the tyre pressure.

Why is it so important to keep them inflated?

If the tyre is not fully inflated, it can cause undue stress on the tyre, which could cause it to fail. Apart from a higher failure rate, an under-inflated tyre can lead to a lack of control for the rider and possibly lead to an accident. Also, faster wear and tear of your dirt bike tyres come with a hefty price tag.

Tyre Alignment

One of the causes of irregular wear and tear is your tyres working their way out of alignment. Because of this, people have to replace the tyres before they should need to and an irregular wear pattern can also make tyres unsafe. A worn tyre can lead to a lack of control when riding, as it doesn’t hold to the road as well, especially in bad weather conditions.

Tyre Rotation

You cannot use the same tyres forever as they will wear out over time. In the case of dirt bike tyres, rotating tyres is different from cars. Here rotating means moving the less-worn tyre, i.e., front tyre to the back and replacing the rear tyre which is usually worn down faster.

This way, you won’t have to replace both of your tyres at the same time. However, the best and safest option is to replace both of your tyres, if necessary.

Tire Tread

The tread of the tyre is what holds you on the road and the damage on the tread can make dirt bikes unsafe to ride, especially in poor conditions. Most tyres will have wear bars on them, and if these are no longer visible, then it’s time to change your tyres.

Without the tyres beneath it, your dirt bike is nothing. Paying attention to the condition of your tyres can save you from both accidents and some huge repair costs. The real trick is to remember to check your tyres regularly and do not take them for granted.
