Motorbike Repairs

Regular servicing will ensure any mechanical or electrical problems are ironed out ahead of your MOT and of course before they affect the safe operation of your motorbike. Your motorbike may also be more efficient and more pleasant to ride when all the components are in optimum condition.

How much is a service for your motorbike?

The cost of a service depends on the size of your engine and type of machine. With your motorcycle registration number, mileage and service history we can give you an exact price.

Full Service vs Interim Service – What’s the difference?

We also offer “interim checks”, which go into less detail than full services, but still ensure the vital components of your motorbike are working as they should be. As the name suggests, this service should keep your bike in good condition between full services. The service will include an oil and oil filter change, as well as checks to brake callipers, pistons, cables, levers, pivots, wheel bearings, headlights, chain function and tyre pressure, among others. It will also include a road test.


We offer a wide range of repair services:

  • From general maintenance to custom builds, fabrication (Mig and Tig work)
  • Suspension services and set -up
  • Braking modifications and enhancements
  • Spares and parts both genuine and upgrades
