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!
Whether it’s for an insurance valuation following an accident, or you’re taking a bike for a test ride prior to buying it. Drop by and we’ll appraise it for you from tyres, through engine to a road ride, even providing a written report should you request it for a small fee.
Any problem, any time, just drop in and we’ll take a look. We’ll be able to give you advice on what the problem is and how to fix it. For a simple task we’ll even carry it out while you wait.
Diagnostics with us are free but, If We (Traxden Motorcycles ) find the problem And you decide not to go through and repair it yourself or with someone else we will charge you with and hourly rate starting from £55/hour+ vat, depending of what work is carried out.

Testimonials from our clients
Having slid my R6, these guys from the off gave sound advice on both parts & assurances that I needed due to damage sustained. Having collected my bike, the performance feels better than my first ride. Very knowledgable and realisable service which is strongly recommended
Excellent service. Great customer service. Alex is very friendly and I can definitely trust that my bike is in safe hands. Keep it up.
You’re doing great !
It’s very near to Ace Cafe. I would definitely recommend Traxden Motorcycles to anyone !
Website Design & Development
Great service ! Alex who run this place is a very passionate about bikes and I am always very satisfied with service . Well done !
Nice and Professional! I had a massive double puncture in my rear wheel of my Yamaxa XMas. They managed to repair it from the inside of a tyre using special rubber “mushroom”. It saved me replacing the whole tyre. Will see how long it lasts, but apparently it is 100% good and I kind of believe it. These guys are experienced and friendly. Something very unique nowadays! Recommend!
Very professional and reasonably priced. Got my 999 running like magic – cheers
Urgently needed a puncture repaired.
‘Alex’ was very polite and completed all the tasks without rushing. Asked for some advice on another issue, he appeared very knowledgeable & honest.
Excellent service, the mechanics there really know their stuff, no job to small or to big.
that’s why this is the only place I let touch my bike .
Went there to get a puncture repaired on my rear tyre. Was done very professionally and gave my bike a quick check over too!
Had a constant recurring front wheel bearing problem with two sets failing. Took it to these guys who within twenty minutes found the cause of the problem. After 4 hours of none stop work It was back together and running like never before. Very professional, dedicated team and it’s clear they love bikes and fixing problems. Had a tyre changed before by them and I would go to them for anything. Fantastic.
Great customer care! Service was prompt and fast. Pricing was competitive and overall quality of work was excellent. Thank you !!!

– Exhaust pipe repair for my CB1300
Thank you Alex and Team
Traxden went the extra mile to fix my exhaust. I know it was a difficult job especially that the downpipes had to be taken down to access the link pipe all way round for welding – the rusty and fragile downpipe gaskets made the job more challenging. My bike now sounds like before and I haven’t had any issues yet. All seems to be holding nicely.
—————— General Review———————-
Fantastic, honest and reliable!. Now my story: I’ve had great experience with Traxden since I first found them in January 2017. I had a brief chat with Alex (the founder I guess) and asked him for a quick fix of my fender bolt. Alex knows bikes inside out. He’s technically zealous AND at the same time humble enough to take your preferences into account. The last job he did for me was adjusting my chain which was fine technically, but I wanted it to be tighter. I watched him carefully and although he fitted me into his extremely busy schedule, he still measured the chain accurately and used his torque wrench. The whole job took him 4 minutes with zero compromise on quality and safety control. Traxden have great workshop and are fully equipped to take care of complex mechanical engineering work. In summery, Alex is great to talk to if you have problem with your bike. He’s fair, honest and friendly. And he doesn’t forget saying his “have a safe ride…’ when you leave him. Thank you all at Traxden! See you soon.
Alex has been my trusted mechanic for over 2 years now and I would never take my bikes anywhere else.My bike was recently booked in for a simple oil service, however on arrival at Traxler Motorcycles Alex pointed out my fork seals were leaking at which point I worriedly pointed out I had a track day booked for the next day. Alex assured me not to worry and sent me on way.My bike was ready with new fork seals and oil service for track day. Thank you Alex @traxlermotorcycles
Took my bike for an MOT today. On the way there the horn packed up but the guys there sourced a second hand one and stuck it on for me for just a few quid. Impressed with how reasonable and decent these chaps are. Will deffo use them again. Cheers fellas.
Fantastic little shop! Done a perfect job on my bike couple of months ago. Bike is running like a dream, had no problems with it at all, even though the repairs on it were immense. Cheers for the high quality work, keep it up because I see you going big.
It’s a place where you MUST go and have your stuff done with confidence!Thank you for your service guys and you will have me back in there soon enough for the second stage on my 916 project !!
I’m very happy and proud of Traxden motorcycle service . They did a great job with my bike and now
