Why Do You Need to Lubricate Your Motorcycle?

 Many riders miss the importance of the chain by modifying the other components of the bikes just for looks and some fancy stuffs, so i would like to give first priority to the chains because we unable to ride a bike without the chains, if its ignored or not taken care it may cause a big problem to your motorcycle.

Chain lube helps to move the bike smoothly and you can feel it smooth after lubing. Below I have listed some tips to take care of your chain on any type of motor cycle.

It doesn’t matter whether you own an older bike, or have a newer, more modern machine, lubrication should be an essential part of your maintenance kit.

  • A dry chain cause bad gear shifting.
  • It reduces the chain noise if it's clean and lubricated.
  • You can save some money when your are taking care of your chains.        
I will not recommend or say that this lube is best, but each and every product quality will differ and cost too.

When coming to my Royal Enfield Himalayan I use kerosene to clean the chain and Vista Chain Lube or sometimes Liqui Moly, i can feel the difference by using both. the density and the stickiness differs on both. 

How to apply chain lube on motorcycle?

Here's a step by step guide on how to effectively apply lube,

  • Place you bike on a centre stand or if you don't have centre stand use paddock stand to lift your rear wheel up.
  • Then start your bike and leave it on first gear for few minutes to produce some heat on chains.
  • After that apply some chain cleaner or some kerosene to remove dust and dirt from then chains.
  • Use toothbrush or chain cleaning brush to clean dirt from the nook and corners of the chain.
  • Then take a clean cloth and wipe off the remaining dust from the chain.
  • Now shake well your chain lube and the start rotating rear wheel by your hands on anti clock wise and spray it on all different angles.




some peoples only clean and lube the bigger sprocket side and forget to clean the inner sprocket. You can clean the inner sprocket by every 3000 to 5000 kms. take a look at the picture of the dirt from the inner sprocket.

This is the end of the blog, dear fellow riders make sure that your chains are lubed every 500kms or every 10 Days once.

Central Government of India banned Non-ISI-Helmets.

On June 1st Central Government (The Ministry Of Road Transport And Highways) has banned the non-ISI helmets but why? They are claiming by there are more than 56,000 accidents happens because of non-ISI helmets. Most of the brands like Axor, LS2 , AGV are DOT, ECE certified and they are used for racing too and they have the international standards for it too. These helmets brands are more popular than the ISI-certified brands.  Most bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts prefer only these types of helmets because of safety features. Am not blaming the ISI-certified helmets but DOT and ECE certified are more preferred by all. We have popular brands like Vega , Studds are ISI certified brands in India. If the person rides using the other certified helmets rather then ISI certified means they can be fined from 500 rupees to 5000 rupees accordingly, but if you ride without helmet only 100 just joking 😜. If a seller sells an non-ISI-certified helmets means they will be fined up to 5 lakhs and

Dream Bike

The Dream Bike      Years went passing by using the discover 100 for more than 5 years, there are some inner feelings that I need a higher cc bike to reach the destination place a little bit early, and  adrenaline rushes sometimes to feel the speed of the bike. I didn't say that the speed of the Discover in not much slower somehow I needed much power and some offroading capabilities because of the Indian roads.     While in the thought of changing the bike my discover saved me from several crashes and accidents. I'll explain one incident that happed a few years back. I was at a speed of 60Kmph on a curve I thought of taking cornering at the training situation and in a slippery road on a fine rainy day moring while returning back home. I bent the bike totally to the left side of the road it ended in a crash. the left side of the leg is totally worse and the upper skin was fully damaged and the road full of blood. I don't know what to do at that situation some peoples gathere

My First Bike

Few years ago on a fine day I have decided to take my father to the bajaj bike showroom which is in my native. I had no idea what bike to buy. All Indian parents will never give us a chance to buy our first bike as we wish but that whatnot that their thoughts, neighbor and relatives will twist their mind and their thoughts like don't buy and give him a higher cc bike, I have seen your son riding bikes in an aggressive manner on roads, but the fact is I don't know to dive a geared bike then how can they see me riding rash? Bull shits. I finally convinced my parents to buy a bike with at least 100cc for God's shake and they agreed because we have a Bajai M80 at our home commonly called "The Load King", now you know why they agreed from 80 to 100 is not a drastic change right? So on another fine day of the same month I took him to the same showroom and showed him a pulsar 150, the sales guy ruined the plan and told the Cc and specs about the bike all collapsed, then
