Rider Basics

OHM Terminology: The Parts

Spark Arrestor:
Required by law, this is a small screen or object located within the muffler that traps or prevents the release of flammable debris.
Muffler:
Located at the rear of the bike, the muffler is a device that reduces the amount of noise that the machine produces. Mufflers are required by law with some exception for organized events and racing.
Footpegs:
These are located on both sides of the bike and are used as footrests when the bike is in motion. Bikes designed to carry more than one rider will have an extra set of footpegs for the passenger.
Headlights/Brake Lights:
Dirt bikes can be equipped with both front lights and rear lights. They should be turned on during night riding or anytime you’re riding during conditions when visibility is poor.
Fuel Tank:
The fuel tank or ‘reservoir’ holds the fuel and is located on the upper part of the bike, in the area in front of the rider.
Gear Shifter or 'Shift Pedal':
This is a pedal located on the left side of the machine and is used in combination with the hand clutch lever to change gears.
Fuel Shut-Off Valve:
This cuts off fuel supply from the tank to the carburetor when switched off. The fuel shut-off valve should always be turned off when the machine is not in use.
