The short service consists of a change of oil and filter plus chain adjustment & lubrication as well as a thorough inspection of virtually all the items covered in a full service - almost everything we can check without actually dismantling your vehicle.
Chassis & Brakes
All motorcycles will be road-tested by a qualified technician to ensure all work has been carried out satisfactorily.
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.
Please note that, except for our all-inclusive £150 Short Service, all prices are exclusive of parts. As you can appreciate motorcycle parts prices can vary significantly according to model so please call for an accurate quote.

Plus, should your motorcycle break down unexpectedly, or you are unfortunate enough to have an accident and need your vehicle recovered, simply give us a ring with the details. We'll do what we can to help.
We stock and supply a wide range of competitively priced tyres. Please call us for cost and availability. Prices include 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.
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' reasonably cheaply so you don't have to fork out for a brand new tyre.
If your fork seals are leaking we carry most parts in stock to fix the problem. Please call us on 01664 49 44 44 to book in, or for a quote.
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 which can cause substantial damage to your motorcycle chassis or even engine casings. Regular maintenance can also significantly increase the life expectancy of your chain and sprockets and it will only take a few minutes if you pre-book.
Regular oil and filter changes can increase the life expectancy of your engine. It is advisable to consult your owners manual as to the frequency with which this should be done. However if you have your bike serviced regularly this shouldn't prove necessary as an oil and filter change is part of scheduled service requirements.
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.
As an approved repair agent, we can get you back on the road as painlessly as possible following an accident. We can collect your motorcycle from the scene and undertake all the necessary repairs, or simply provide you with an itemised quote.

If you are under 24 and therefore unable to take the DAS test but want to ride the latest Suzuki GSXR, we can help. By fitting a 35KW (47bhp) restrictor kit anything is possible. One certificate and you are legal.
Passed your test but can't afford a new bike? Get yours de-restricted and marvel at the extra horsepower we can unlock. The same is possible for many smaller 'learner legal' machines including many mopeds, although of course once de-restricted it immediately stops being 'learner legal'... If you are not sure, just ask.

In some circumstances we are able offer a storage facility for motorcycles at a rate of £15 per day.
