MOTORCYCLE MAINTENANCE 101
A pleasant, relaxed 3.5-4 hour evening, where I show you what you should and need to know about maintaining a modern motorcycle. All the questions you were too afraid or embarrassed to ask the service manager! The theory is, for $30, all I have to show you are 1 or 2 things that you didn’t know previously, and the rest of the course is a bonus.
Some of what we will cover;
- Basic maintenance of your tires, chain and sprockets, battery, cables, carburetors, etc.
- Adjustment of drive chain, cables, levers, suspension and foot controls.
- How to ‘boost’ a battery safely, change bulbs, check your oil, and change your oil.
- How to store your bike to avoid the springtime nightmare. And more.
We will go from the tires to the brake lever, and everything in between. It is a basic course, for those who aren’t sure how to care for their motorcycles, or would just like to learn more. I don’t teach you how to do a tune-up, but you will find it interesting.
I have been teaching this course for 4 years, riding for 21 years, a licensed mechanic for 12 years, and involved in racing for18 years. The class is relaxed, fun, and informative.
The students are allowed to laugh at me, but not each other! Groups are usually 10 in size
The cost is only $30, the courses are usually held Tuesday night starting at 7 pm. Imperial Motorcycles is committed to rider safety, and has donated the space so that I can teach it. The course can be given elsewhere (pre-booked groups), and occasionally I will hold ‘women only’ courses.
If you are interested, or have questions, please email me: email@example.com
and I will notify you when the next course is being held.
p.s you don’t need a bike, be an expert with a wrench, and there’s no test!
Private lessons and groups can be arranged, just ask!
Thanks, ride safe. Bernie
