  3. Avoid stopping in the middle of the climb. For that, look, analyse, plan, and ride.
  4. While descending, use the engine braking system, or for very slow descending on steep downhills, use both brakes by depressing the clutch to avoid stalling.

  3. Check that the spark plug is securely connected.

  5. Check the electricity by pressing the horn. beeps, the motorcycle has electricity.
  6. If a motorcycle is carbureted, check that the fuel supply switch under the tank is not in the “OFF” position. The fuel supply switch must be either “ON” or “Reserve” if less fuel remains in the tank.
