Important words you need to know before riding a Dirt Bike for the first time

Getting to know and understand your bike requires some basic an understanding of certain words:

Throttle: The throttle is the control on the handlebar that regulates the speed of the engine. Twist to increase and release to decrease speed.

Brakes: Dirt Bikes usually have both front and rear brakes. The front brake is controlled by the lever on the right handlebar, while the rear brake is controlled by the pedal near your right foot. Learn to use both brakes effectively to control your speed and stop safely.

Gears: Most Dirt Bikes have a manual transmission with multiple gears. Learn how to shift gears using the gear shifter located near your left foot. Start with lower gears for slower speeds and gradually shift up as you gain confidence. Our Bikes at Bali Dirt Bikes mostly have 5 or 6 gears. 

Suspension: The suspension system of a Dirt Bike helps absorb impacts and provides stability. You can adjust the suspension settings based on your weight and riding conditions.
