5 Simple Tips for Maintaining Your E-Bike

5 Simple Tips for Maintaining Your E-Bike

GM Dai |

Basic maintenance will ensure a longer and more comfortable life for your e-bike. Like any other vehicle, an e-bike can retain its value if it is well maintained. Good maintenance will also help you avoid most mechanical problems. The following four tips will help you have the best possible experience as an owner.

1. Avoid completely draining the battery.
Even though battery technology is advanced, you should be careful not to completely drain the battery. In general, it is advisable to keep the battery full during normal use and bring it to about 60% capacity during long-term storage. This will help to maintain the condition of the battery for as long as possible. This also has the added benefit of preventing the battery from remaining uncharged.

2.Clean your brakes.
Brake squeal is a common problem on motorcycles because many people neglect to clean and change the pads. Loud noises indicate that the brakes are not holding the wheels properly. This can be caused by old brake pads or dirt on the pads. Remember that brakes are slowed by friction and will wear out over time, especially if they are not cleaned properly. Brake maintenance is necessary for a safer and more comfortable ride.

3.Check and adjust tire pressure.
Tire pressure has a significant impact on the performance of any vehicle. The correct air pressure ensures that the tires have the correct ground contact area. This means optimum handling and acceleration. In addition, the tires help reduce impact. In other words, good tires with the right pressure make cycling more enjoyable.

4.Store in a protected location.
Store your e-bike in a location that is protected from the weather: The components of electric bikes are waterproof and prepared for use in bad weather. However, like any other vehicle, they will eventually be damaged if exposed to the sun, snow or rain. If possible, store it indoors. If this is difficult, a protective cover is recommended.

5.Lubricate the chain.
As with most bicycles, it is the chain that transmits power from the pedals to the wheels. This chain needs to be lubricated to keep it running smoothly and without friction against the gears. Regular lubrication of the chain will keep your e-bike in top condition.

Lubricants also pick up dirt and contaminants over time. Occasionally, it is advisable to use a degreaser to remove dirt and re-lubricate the chain.
