On all major servicing, it is necessary to check and adjust the valve clearances* on your motorcycle.
Sometimes it is necessary to completely remove the carburettors in order to adjust the valve clearances correctly. Should this prove necessary, we remove the float bowl, clean all jets and balance the carburettors to ensure perfect running.
Certain items like fork oil viscosity, steering head bearings and rear arm bearings need to be inspected as well.
This is in addition to everything you can expect from the Full Service.
* Should your valve clearances need adjusting, we replace all sealer washers and gaskets with new components.
Prices start from £230
Correct chain adjustment and maintenance is essential for a safe and long-lived road ride, preventing the chain from snapping or even slipping off the rear sprocket.
Regular maintenance can also significantly increase the life expectancy of your chain and sprockets.
From as little as £5.00 and taking only a few minutes, it’s worth popping in now and again to avoid heartache.
Daily checks on your tyres before setting off on a ride can greatly reduce the chances of ‘blow-outs’ whilst riding. Should you come across a nail or any other metallic object embedded in your tyre, it’s probably sensible to ride carefully to your nearest workshop for repairs.
Most modern vehicles run on tubeless tyres, which can usually be ‘plugged’ in a matter of minutes for as little as £15.00 for a loose wheel.
Free with any tyre fitting.
A standard check which we undertake whenever a new tyre is fitted, wheel balancing involves the fitting of small adhesive weights to the rim of your wheels in order to counter-balance the valve load. Occasionally, after hitting a kerb or pot-hole, these weights can be knocked loose, resulting in a speed wobble.
Should you experience a vibration from the wheels when travelling at speed, it’s probably worth bringing your bike to us for a quick once-over.
As a legal requirement, the annual MOT is a series of safety checks on your vehicle. Covering simple things such as the legal tread depth, correctly functioning and aimed lights through to safely operating braking systems and wheel bearings.
This check is also worth doing if you are considering selling your vehicle as it effectively increases the market value by considerably more than the £29.65 that it costs!
