Jakarta – Entering the rainy season, a number of cities are often hit by floods. This can certainly endanger the condition of your motorbike, and there is a risk of water entering the engine or cylinder, causing a water hammer condition. Reporting from several sources, a motor that is submerged in a flood can have an impact on engine oil which leads to engine damage. Not only that, the axle parts of the motor also have the potential to be damaged if the axle oil is contaminated with water. Here's an easy and effective way to take care of your used motorcycle after a flood so that it stays in prime condition:


  1. Clean and wash the motor with clean water and special soap.

  1. Check the battery and electricity or motor cable lines.

Do not immediately turn on the main switch or ignition, you must make sure all cables, electrical systems and batteries are dry so that there is no short circuit when the motor is turned on.
