The shocks and struts are components of your motorcycle's suspension system that help to absorb jolts and vibrations, improve stability, and maintain contact between the tires and the road. They work by dampening the up-and-down movement of the motorcycle's wheels in response to bumps, potholes, and other irregularities on the road surface.
How to Spot Problems With Your Shocks or Struts
When motorcycle shocks and struts are in good working condition, they help to provide a smooth and comfortable ride. However, over time and with regular use, they can wear out and lose their effectiveness. When this happens, it can lead to a number of problems, including:
- A rough, bumpy ride
- Your motorcycle is harder to control
- Uneven tire wear
- Increased stopping distance
To determine if your motorcycle shocks and struts are in good working condition, you can perform a visual inspection. Look for signs of oil leaks, corrosion, or damage to the components. You can also perform a bounce test by pushing down on the motorcycle's seat and releasing it. The bike should bounce back up and settle within one or two oscillations. If it bounces excessively, it could be a sign that the shocks and struts need to be replaced.
