  • Basic Motorcycle Maintenance 101

    Many times I find simple questions about maintenance by new riders or for riders with limited resource or knowledge to do simple maintenance ridiculed and lambasted.

    Do you want to know how to:
    1. Change / check oil
    2. Change Oil Filter
    3. Change and Check Air filter
    4. Change and Check Fuilds
    5. Adjust chain
    6. Check and adjust torque settings
    7. Preform Visual Check of Bike for Pre Ride and Post Ride
    8. Plug check and change

    These are some of the basic tips and maintenance I would like to teach you. Working on your own bike is 50% of the fun of Motorcycle ownership. I am not a professional or certified mechanic. What I am is a person with 35 plus years of motorcycle ownership, working on my own street, dirt and race bikes.

    I started working on engines when I was old enough to be in my dads auto garage. I have been doing my own port work and race engine building since I was 14 years old. I worked at Bob Chaves Cycles in the late 70's early 80's and had the opportunity to learn and understand porting by John Hlebo. I was building my own dirt trackers and road racers, engine building, bike setup and learning more and more on under the tutelage of Bob Chaves, John Hlebo and Ed Bean.

    What I offer is a basic concept of maintenance for your bike, Oil change, Fluids, Torque specs, ergonomic adjustment to fit your ride and a fun time.

    You supply the Parts, I supply the Teaching, the Garage, the time. I enjoy teaching, it is a passion of mine to help fellow riders to understand setup, general maintenance and most of all Safety inspections of your bike.

    The Cost $25 per session or if a group we can work that out. What Better way to understand and get knowledge on how to maintain your bike. This alone can save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars.

    My Shop is clean, my tools are appropriate and I have the knowledge of 35 plus years working on and preping my own race bikes from a 50cc step through Honda 50 (1st Bike) 60 HP R5 TD Specked Twin, YZ250a dirt tracker to a Yamaha R1, dirt, street or track readiness I would be happy to help.

    If your interested, feel free to PM or respond to this thread. I live in Hollister, Calif.

    You never have to change the oil on your shoretel system. It runs forever on the same sludge!
