Passionate for Bikes V

After buying bike what we must do is to keep tab on petrol consumption. This will save you a lot of money and also you will also contribute towards saving the world against Global Warming. Here are some things you can do to reduce petrol consumption and which will eventually result in healthy life for your vehicle.

1. At any speed try to stay in as high gear, avoid driving in low gear as possible without bike giving jerks.

2. As much as possible reduce the use of brakes. Or keep brakes as free as possible.

3. Always keep air pressure in tires as per the recommended level because lesser air in tires creates higher resistance and consume more petrol.

4. Sleeping of clutch also contribute in wasting of petrol so keep the clutch well adjusted.

5. Change Engine Oil on recommended intervals.

6. Use genuine engine oil so there will be lesser friction in engine.

7. Clean air filter regularly.

8. Keep drive chain and sprockets regularly and lubricate it with grease.

9. Clean the carburetor regularly.

10. Clean spark plug regularly in every 2000km.

In short keep your bike and bike parts cleaned and well lubricated in regular intervals.

Passionate for Bikes - III

Some months back I wasn’t aware how 100cc bike is better than 150cc or higher cc bike. And internet helped me understand what does cc means to bikes. The word “cc” stands for square centimeters of displacement. It basically means size of the engine, bigger the number bigger the size of engine and it is directly proportional to speed of the vehicle and inversely proportional to average or mileage of the vehicle. That simply means that 150cc bike will be faster than the 100cc bike, it will also be heavier and it will cost you more at the time of buying as well as for every day use, as it will consume more petrol than lower cc bike. Technically it means lower cc bikes will have better average i.e. distance it cover/liter of petrol. Higher cc bike will have better pick up i.e. it will have better acceleration. But beware it is not easy to control such bikes.
