Electronic bikes are a great way to get around. However, if you don’t take care of them properly, it could end up costing you a lot of money. In order to ensure your electric bike stays in good, working condition, it’s important to perform regular maintenance to reduce the risk of damages and repairs in the future.
Here are 5 maintenance tips for electric bikes:
1. Regular Cleaning
It’s important to regularly clean your electric bike. This will help to keep dirt, dust, and debris from getting into the engine. In addition, it also helps to keep all the mechanical parts moving properly.
You should also wash your electronic bike once or twice per week. When you wash your electronic bike, don’t use a pressurized house or stream of water, instead use a low-pressure water stream or a wet rag.
The battery is the most important part of your electronic bike. You should read the owner’s manual on how to properly charge your electronic bike. This will prevent you from damaging the battery and wearing it out a lot quicker.
3. Break Pads
You should check your brake pads every few weeks. They are easily and inexpensive to replace whenever necessary. It’s important to have effective breaks in order to avoid a serious injury and accident.
4. Tire Pressure
You should check your tire pressure to see what the current pressure by using a pressure gauge or inspecting the sidewalls of your bikes. If the tire pressure is too low or the tires can visibly sink when you push your finger into them, then you should inflate your tires with a bike pump to the pressure indicated on the tires.
Lubrication is important in order to keep all the mechanics in your electronic bike in working order. You should apply lubrication on the major moving parts such as the chain. However, before applying lubrication, you should use a special cleaning solution to clean off the chain. It’s recommended that you lubricate your electronic bike at least once a week.
