Cleaning Your Motorcycle Chain: A Step By Step Guide

Posted on 29 Oct 2018 in Powersports | 0 comments

Before we get started… Before you get ahead of yourself and put your nose to the grindstone, we want to make sure that a cleaning is what your motorcycle needs, and not a replacement. If your chain has become loose and has too much give, it might be time for a new one. If your sprocket has been worn down to round little nubs or is shaped like a wave, you probably need a new one. If you are going to be replacing either of these parts, there is no reason to clean them first. So, assuming that you’ve got that checked and you still plan on cleaning your current chain and sprocket, we’ll continue.   Step 1: Grab your Tools When we say tools, we mean […]

Prepping Your Motorcycle for Cold Weather Riding

Posted on 19 Oct 2018 in Motorcycle, Powersports | 0 comments

For much of the USA, motorcycling is something of a 3 season activity. But, that doesn’t mean that people don’t try to battle the elements each year. Plenty of bikers would ride 365 days a year if they could. This pushing of the limits means less than ideal conditions each winter for all but the southern reaches of the continent. As the air chills, it goes from a warm, refreshing breeze, to a harsh, freezing bite that will leave your hands numb and your cheeks burning. If you are going to be out riding in the harsh conditions that fall and winter bring, then you need to be prepared. And guess what, it’s your lucky day; we’ve taken the first step for you. We’ve taken everything you […]

Posted on 24 Sep 2018 in Harley-Davidson | 0 comments

We know that Harley sells their bikes as a finished product, but if you are anything like us, that’s not how you see it. When we see a Harley, we see something closer to a block of clay. It serves its purpose, but beyond that, it’s lacking. It needs a sculptor, a person with a vision and a strong hand to shape that clay into something one of a kind. Luckily, HogWorkz has spent the years designing parts that will transform your Harley bagger from a block of clay into the “David” of motorcycles.
