To keep your tires at peak performance and to drive safely, it’s important to have your car aligned regularly. This has been common in cars for many years, but it hardly ever happens in the motorcycle world. While you can save a lot of misery when purchasing a used engine. We take a look at the Lunterse Motorcheck to see how that works.
There are many things to consider when buying a used motorcycle. The assessment of the external condition is simple. You can see the quality of the paint, chrome and aluminum at a glance, just like the tire wear. That already gives a good indication with regard to the maintenance of the engine. Hearing the running and driving of the engine can also be an important indicator of the condition of the machine. It is in particular the hidden defects that can break you up, however, and they often concern the bicycle part, as many motorcycle enthusiasts will have experienced to their damage and shame. Jeffrey Zeggelaar encounters it often enough: “A short test drive often does not say everything. It is often extreme situations that reveal such hidden flaws. A sudden change of course, misjudgment of a bend, where the engine reacts differently than it should. But then it is often too late.” With a 3D geometry check, the hidden defects in the bicycle part are revealed.
But how exactly does that work, and what are the benefits? Of course you can read that in MotoPlus 11/2022.
