things to check before you take your Yamaha YBR 125  out for a ride .

ok so i do not do this myself every time tbh , i should but i am pretty sure my bike is in very good overall mechanical condition , but if you have a long journey or use you bike everyday for commuting it might be wise to check you bike regular .
or even after a long holiday when its not been used often .

Start engine and let it idle for 2-3 minutes .

Check oil level  - do not screw in dipstick just test by pushing in not screwing back or you will get wrong readings

i use C

if you are losing engine oil or topping up regular youll need to find source of leak/loss , engine joints
oil seals , gasket failure if not the engine itself could be burning off oil , check for white smoke .

check tyres for correct pressure (cold)  , correct tread depth and overall good condition no tears to side wall
etc , check the valve condition also as this is major cause of flat tyres .

Brake fluid checks  ( DOT 4 )

this is something that a lot of people neglect , change your brake fluid regular i hate seeing bikes
with filthy brake fluid , flush it out keep it clean ! .

if your fluid is low check brake pads as they are most likely worn , do not top up fluid until
new pads are fitted.

if you are having to top up fluid regular , then there is a leak and this will need to be found and repaired.

check operation of the brake both of them before riding the bike on the road .
