Description

Motorcyclists say that driving a motorcycle is like flying and makes you feel alive, powerful and free. While wheeling your new bike out of the shop, you were probably more focused on riding than maintenance but experienced bike owners agree that to do the exciting stuff, you first have to know how to take good care of your machine. We begin by explaining the type of tools commonly found in a workshop that are usually bought only when needed. While working with tools, it is very important to be aware of potential safety risks so we will unpack the most common concerns and solutions.

As you become familiar with your bike's components, you will start to appreciate how the various parts work together to achieve their intended design, starting with the engine and its ignition system. If its timing is off, you can follow the easy steps outlined in this course to adjust it correctly. In addition to its body and moving mechanical parts, a motorcycle also consists of electrical components. Electrical checks can tell you if a specific piece is working correctly or if there is a faulty connection. During an electrical replacement or repair, special care must be taken to prevent short circuits and injury.

We also offer helpful tips to help you make your bike look good and turn heads. While everyone has their own approach to cleaning a motorbike, there are recommended procedures to avoid as they can damage sensitive components. If your bike doesn't turn on after washing, we offer troubleshooting tips to help you identify the problem and possibly save you some money. This course is for first-time owners, potential buyers or aspiring mechanics as we show you how to keep motorbikes safe, well-tuned and running at optimal performance. This will help you spend more time on the open road and less time in the workshop.
