Motorcycle owners know that maintenance is a key to saving money, and an important facet in avoiding motorcycle accidents. In an effort to help motorcycle owners decide where to apply their attention when maintaining a bike, ConsumerReports.org has compiled a list of the parts that are most likely to be repaired.
Ranging from lights and meters to frames and chassis, the report covers a wide range of repairs. According to Consumer Reports, accessories had the highest repair rate at 21 percent. Accessories include items like lights, meters, switches, radio, etc. Shockingly, brake repairs came in at a very close second at 20 percent. Experts from Consumer Reports suggested that most brake problems are due to maintenance and owner negligence. These kinds of statistics show that motorcycle owners need to take extra care of their vehicle, as its components are more exposed than a passenger vehicle. Neglecting repairs could lead to a leisurely afternoon turned tragic when a vital component of a motorcycle breaks, leading to an accident that causes severe injuries.
While not all motorcycle accidents are caused by a motorcycle needing a repair, a faulty part could be the difference between stopping, or contact with another vehicle.
