Changing oil is easy. Why would I pay you to do it?

On many bikes changing oil is a simple procedure if you have the right tools and know how…but at Motorcycle Xpress Lube Plus it is much more. When Motorcycle Xpress Lube Plus completes an oil service, your bike will receive a full bike inspection including tire pressure, tire wear, critical fasteners, safety features, wear items, chain/belt tensions and many more checks. These checks can alert you to potential problems long before they impact the safety of the bike or lead to more damage.

Our staff will work with you to select the proper weight and type of oil to match your specific bike’s requirements.

Why does Motorcycle Xpress Lube Plus use K&N and HiFlO filters?

After evaluating many oil filters Motorcycle Xpress Lube Plus believes that K&N and HiFlO are the best filters available. K&N and HiFlO filters only use premium quality materials such as prime Tin-Plated steel end caps, special high temperature plastisol, and Microglass/Synthetic enhanced saturated filter media. These high quality parts combine to provide features you won’t find in other motorcycle oil filters on the market. K&N and HiFlO filters meet and exceed all manufacturer warranties and are specifically designed to fit your bike and application

Do I have to have my bike serviced by the dealer to maintain my warranty.

No. There is a federal law called the Magnusin-Moss act that states that a manufacturer cannot require a consumer to only use the manufacturers product or services in order to maintain a warranty unless, the manufacturer/dealer provides the products and services at no charge! The products used must ONLY meet the manufacturers published specifications.

How often should I change my oil?

Most manufacturers recommend oil changes between 2500 and 3000 miles. This varies with your riding style and the time of year. There are new long-life oils that claim to provide protection in the 5000 to 9000 miles range. These oils are specifically designed to promote a longer life. The issue is the contaminants that build up in the oil and the filter. The primary purpose of oil is lubrication but it also acts as a medium to remove sludge and harmful particles in the engine. Oil filters trap these particles and help clean the oil by trapping the particles in the filter medium. The manufacturer’s recommendations for oil change intervals are listed in your bike’s manual. Most often, such recommendations are measured according to “ideal” driving conditions, and in practice you should change the oil more frequently. Motorcycle Xpress lube Plus recommends that oil and filter should be changed every 2500 to 3000 miles.

Should I use synthetic oil?

This is a common question, and one that is dependent on your bike, riding style, what intervals you service the bike and of course…personal preference. Some bikes require synthetic oil to maintain manufacturer’s warranty while with others synthetic oil will impact clutch performance. If you are religious about regular service intervals (3000 miles or less, there is nothing wrong with standard oil. If you push oil services to 5000 – 6000 miles, you may choose to use synthetic oil if applicable to your bike. As always, check your manufacturer’s specifications prior to making a change to synthetic oil. Motorcycle Xpress Lube Plus provides Castrol as our base oil, Castrol Act>Evo – a synthetic blend – and Castrol VTWIN and R$ Superbike Synthetic oil. We also carry products and oils designed for ATV, dirt bikes and two-stroke engines.

What is the best tire?

Tires vary greatly by manufacturers, type of tire, compounds, radius, load capacities and many other factors. The best tire for you is really based on the bike and the way you ride. After you have the right size, aspect ratio and type of tire (radial or bias) for your bike, the actual tire that is best for you is based on how you ride. Come in to Motorcycle Xpress Lube Plus and our staff will work with you to find the best tire for you and your bike.
