Monsoon Checklist for your Motorcycle.

Updated: Aug 24, 2023





  • Tires:

Check tire tread depth and overall condition. Inflate tires to the recommended pressure. Consider using tires suitable for wet conditions.

  • Brakes:

Inspect brake pads and replace if worn out. Check brake fluid levels and top up if necessary. Ensure the brake system is functioning correctly. Use both brakes at all times to prevent loss of traction.

  • Chain and Drivetrain:

Clean and lubricate the chain for smooth operation. Adjust the chain tension as per the manufacturer's specifications.

  • Body and Paint:

Inspect the motorcycle's body and paint for any scratches or dents. Apply a protective wax or sealant to protect the paint from rain and moisture.

  • Electrical System:

Test all lights, including headlights, taillights, indicators, and brake lights. Check the battery's charge and terminals for any corrosion. Inspect all wiring and connections for any signs of wear or corrosion. Spray WD40 on all connections and behind switches to lubricate them and prevent corrosion.

Test all electrical components, including horn, indicators, and switches.

  • Fuel System:

Ensure the fuel tank is clean and free from rust. Maintain fuel tank atleast ¾ full at all times to prevent water condensation.

  • Toolkit and Emergency Gear:

Verify that your toolkit is complete and includes essential tools for roadside repairs. Carry an emergency puncture repair kit and a portable air pump.

  • Rain Protection:

Install fender extensions or mud flaps to minimize water splashes on the engine and rider. Consider using waterproof covers for the seat and any luggage.

  • Riding Gear:

Make sure you have appropriate riding gear, including a waterproof jacket and pants with reflective strips for better visibility.



Completing this monsoon checklist will help ensure your motorcycle is ready for the challenges posed by the rainy season, providing you with a safe and enjoyable riding experience.
