What is the Difference Between
Maintenance and Repair
When you take your bike to a service center you often hear the terms maintenance and repairs. Maintaining and repairing your bike is essential for performance and longevity, but many are unsure of the difference between the two.
Maintenance is the services required to ensure your bike’s longevity. These services include oil changes, tire balancing, brake pads replacement, and more. Most manufacturers have a certain maintenance schedules recommendations that will tell you what needs to be done and when. You can find this recommended maintenance schedule in your owner’s manual.
Repairs are services that are needed when a part is not working correctly. Either the part has malfunctioned or it has become worn to the point where the part needs to be replaced in order to maintain the performance of your bike.
