Royal Enfield has just released a series of videos which break down basic maintenance tasks for its Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650.
It’s not always easy to work on modern motorcycles – but with the increasing popularity of Royal Enfield’s retro-style machines and a return to comparative simplicity, the Indian factory has released a series of video to help you look after your 650 twin.
The DIY maintenance videos aim to help owners perform a range of basics tasks to keep their pride and joy running in tip-top condition. If you’re replacing a blown bulb, removing the front wheel to fix a puncture, cleaning and lubricating the chain, troubleshooting, adjusting the throttle cable, cleaning or replacing the spark plug, removing the rear wheel, inspecting the oil or adjusting the clutch cable – Royal Enfield has got you covered. In addition to explaining the process, the videos also detail the tools you’d need to carry out the maintenance job.
We think it’s a brilliant idea from the Anglo-Indian brand which has undergone a bit of resurgence over the past few years with its range of stripped back, retro-styled motorcycles. And instead of making a grab for cash and sending punters running to a dealer when a bit of work needs doing, it’s equipping RE riders with the skills to look after their own bike. Credit to them.
