Maintenance intervals for tune components
Our components are high-tech parts and require regular maintenance to ensure proper function. This article provides information on the required maintenance intervals.
The required maintenance intervals are largely depended on the conditions of use. Generally we require these maintenance intervals:
Thorough inspection of the component under normal operating conditions (depending on the component, cleaning, disassembly, replacement of wear parts, lubrication, adjustment)
1x per year
Thorough inspection in adverse operating conditions (regular rides in the rain, heavy pollution, snow & salt, dust)
4x per year
Check tightening torques
Every 20 operating hours
Thorough component inspection for defects
Before and after every ride
Service in the event of abnormalities (noise, deformation, limited function)
Cleaning according to care instructions
After every ride
Should spare parts be necessary after a defect or due to wear, only original tune spare parts may be used! Spare parts can be obtained from a tune dealer.
Maintenance work on tune components must always be carried out by an official dealer with the aid of the appropriate tune tools. The required tools can be obtained directly from us.
The safety requirements and test methods defined in the current standards for offroad mountain bikes and racing bikes for amateur use on public roads define a finite number of load cycles to be endured. This test method implies a limited service life of the tested components. We recommend replacing components after about 3 years of use. The time of replacement depends on the intensity of use.
Regular maintenance in accordance with the maintenance intervals and observance of the assembly instructions maximizes the durability of the components.
