 Q. Who do I contact to get a payout on my YMF loan.?

A. Phone 1800 123 100 and follow the prompts to get a loan payout

 

 Q. Where do I get information to find out when the next trail ride is on.?

A. Check the trail updates section in the trail ride and event news.

A. Subscribe to our e-mail trail database to receive information on rides and cancellations 2 to 3 weeks before every ride.

 

 Q. How often should I change my oil.?

A. On motocross bikes, unless otherwise specified at least every 10 hours, 5 hours under extreme use.

A. On 4 stroke Enduro bikes, at least every 500kms, less for extreme use or fastidious owners.

A. Most larger capacity adventure bikes are every 5000 km.

 

 Q. What fuel should I use.?

A. Every motorcycle including all small engines should use premium unleaded, preferably 98 octane if available, as the motor starts easier, runs cooler and cleaner and has more power. Low octane fuel makes your motor run hot, harder to start and loses its octane level the longer it is stored. We have seen several instances, where with low octane fuel that has gone stale, the bike has run so lean that it has burnt a hole in the piston.

 

 Q. What tyre pressures should I use.?

A. MX and Enduro bikes usually are from 14 to 15 PSI, this will keep your rims straight and minimise punctures especially if you use ultra-heavy duty tubes. In really wet slippery conditions 8 to 10 PSI on the rear will allow you to get upmost hills that people are failing on, really good little trick to remember.

 

 Q. How long should I keep my bike or at what stage should I sell it.?

A. For dirt bikes, you may lose a little too much if you trade in one year but that depends on the circumstances of condition and kilometres , in most cases the standard changeover period for motorcycles seems to be every 2 to 3 years. With the late-model high-performance enduro bikes, 4-5000 kms seems to be a distance that people will still pay reasonable money for the bike, obviously less kms is better and can attract higher dollars, and more kilometres will see the trade-in and resale price start to drop significantly.

 

 Q. Where do I go to obtain a motorcycle license or to get driving lessons.

A.  There is a link to GC Driving School on our interesting links page, they are the Dalby  Q Ride provider for the Darling Downs, contact Grant Arnold on 0428 631 061 or go to Grant's Driving School Website. Grant operates Q Ride from Dalby Moto.

Franco Ambrosio on Dalby Moto :

For fear of adding another email to your inbox, it must be said that you're an exceptional human being. 
I must be one of thousands upon thousands of customers/riders demanding your time/expertise and you have never failed to deliver: 

(1)discussing my dream 690 setup for hours in person at your shop and the bike show as well as by phone/email; 

(2)spending your day off seeing if the 950SE tank would fit the 690R frame without my even having bought the bike yet; 

(3)delivering my 690 in the middle of the night all the way from Dalby gratis then still giving me a complete handover; 

(4)sorting out my warranty claim pronto; 

(5)giving me an awesome itinerary to Barossa via Wilpena I wouldn't have otherwise tried.

I'll say it again: Dalby Moto is the very best!
