Choosing a Motorcycle Repair Shop You Can Trust

by | Jun 15, 2021 | General Motorcycle |

“On any mechanical repair job ego comes in for rough treatment. You’re always being fooled, you’re always making mistakes, and a mechanic who has a big ego to defend is at a terrific disadvantage.” ― Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values

While author Robert Pirsig’s seminal work is more focused on philosophy than actual motorcycle maintenance, this quote still applies from a practical standpoint. In order to keep your bike performing at its best—and subsequently keeping you safe while riding it—you need to find a mechanic who does more than talk a good game. The following are tips for choosing a trustworthy and knowledgeable motorcycle maintenance and repair shop.

Ask for references

One of the best ways to choose a motorcycle shop with confidence is to ask someone you trust for a referral. Ideally, this should be a friend or family member who is also a rider and knows from personal experience that a given mechanic does solid work. Here are a few questions you can ask your reference:

  • What kind of maintenance or repair work did the shop do for you?
  • Did the mechanic explain the work needed and get your approval before starting?
  • Was the mechanic clear and honest about how much each service option would cost?
  • Did you have to return more than once to get the work to come out right?
  • Were you satisfied with the value you received with regards to quality and cost?

Check the motorcycle shop’s certification

While personal references are great, you should also be certain that the mechanics who will work on your bike have the proper certification to do so. This includes certification to work on your specific make of motorcycle, particularly if it is a foreign or high-end performance machine. Not only is this important from the perspective of the mechanic having been correctly trained to service your particular bike, but it ensures the work will be covered by the warranty on your motorcycle.

Choose a shop with diverse capabilities

Your chosen motorcycle shop should be capable of providing a broad range of services. In addition to basic repairs look for a garage that also optimizes motorcycle performance and makes recommendations to improve yours. Your mechanic should keep up with all the advances in motorcycle performance and safety and offer suggestions relevant to your bike’s brand during regular maintenance consultations. By partnering with a knowledgeable and invested motorcycle maintenance and repair shop, you can look forward to riding a bike kept at peak performance and safety levels for many years to come.
