Dates for your Diary.....
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
For further information and to book please click here (will open in a new page)
Terms and Conditions:
As spaces for each course are limited to 4 people, maintenance class payments are non-refundable.
It may be possible to change the date of your workshop, or for someone else to take your place given at least 7 days notice before the date of the class.
In the event that you cannot bring your own motorcycle, we will substitute it for one of our motorcycles. However please give us as much notice as possible.
Please arrive with your motorcycle at 5.30pm to get checked in. If you don’t have a motorcycle and still want to attend, we can provide a motorcycle for you to work on for the course.
The course will start from 6pm, finishing at 8.30pm (based on a full workshop of 4 people). If you arrive late you may be refused entry due to disruption to the other attendees.
Bring your glasses or lenses if you need them for close up work.
Please advise us of any medical conditions which we should be aware of in a workshop environment; and bring any medication you may need (eg inhaler).
If your motorcycle is from a manufacturer that we don't service in our workshop, we will provide a replacement Yamaha or Suzuki 125cc machine for the duration of the workshop.
