Basic motorcycle maintenance is essential to keep your machine in top top condition, safe and to reduce the possibility of being stranded. It pays to know your way around your motorcycle, even just the weekly / daily basics.
We are delighted to offer basic general motorcycle maintenance workshops, where we will cover the basics with the guidance of our master technician Tommy.
The evening will consist of a brief intro into the pros of checking your motorcycle regularly, followed by a 30 minute, 1 to one session with each customer with their motorcycle on the bench finished off by a question and answer session.
Due to the nature of this workshop numbers are limited to 4 per session to ensure that everyone gets the most out of it.
Things covered in the Basic General Maintenance workshop includes:
Lights and Electrics
Wheels and Tyres
Chains and Drive Belts
