Owner Maintenance

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. 

Learn How to Maintain Your Bike

Exposure to weather, normal wear and tear, and possibly minor tip-overs; motorcycles require more maintenance than a car.  With a few basic tools and some knowledge, you can perform most of the maintenance yourself.

  • Hands on course - come prepared to get dirty
  • Bring your owners manual, if you have one.
  • We'll supply the tools, and a bike for the group to work on
  • Small classes, generally 6 or less
  • Typically 3-4 hours on a Saturday morning
  • Winterization included with fall courses, and start up with spring courses.
  • Questions and discussion encouraged.


  • Learn to adjust controls and riding position to suit you.
  • What tools you need to perform basic maintenance
  • Inspect and adjust for wear, or replace parts
  • Preventative maintenance
  • Winterize, or prepare your bike for the riding season
