Learn How to Maintain Your Bike

Exposure to weather, normal wear and tear, even minor tip overs – motorcycles require more maintenance than a car. Taking it to the dealer or an independent mechanic for minor maintenance and adjustment can be expensive.  Such “fettling” is within the abilities of most riders, even those that don’t consider themselves mechanically inclined.  Take the V-Twin Owner Maintenance (and winterization) Course to find out how.

Topics Covered

  • Controls
  • Tires and Wheels
  • Brakes
  • Drivetrain – chain, belt, or shaft – maintenance
  • Chassis
  • Engine – air or liquid cooled
  • Electrical
  • Fuel system

Hands On Course

This is a “hands on” course – come prepared to get a little dirty.  Hand cleaner, gloves, and shop rags are supplied.  We will also supply a motorcycle to work on, and tools.  Bring your owner’s manual, and your bike if it is on the road, and we’ll relate what you do on the “demo” bike to your own.

The course takes 3-4 hours on a Saturday morning, and costs $30 plus GST.  It will be the best time and money you spend on your bike.  Click on the register button for the course you are interested in to request registration, or call V-Twin at the local number listed below.  A partial schedule of locations and times is shown, but other courses will be added as the season progresses, so send us an e-mail if you are interested and don’t see one that meets your schedule:
