A Puget Sound Safety Exclusive!
Being able to properly maintain and care for your motorcycle is more than just about saving money or the joy of spending time with your bike, it is also about safety. Our care and maintenance courses are essential to staying safe on the road by avoiding mechanical failures that could result a crash. Stay safe and don't let a roadside breakdown ruin your next ride. For less than the cost of a single tune-up we can teach you what EVERY rider should know about their motorcycle.
Priced at only 1 1/2 hours of shop time this one day course includes expert instruction and classroom labs using a training motorcycle and discovery labs with personal motorcycles. Personal motorcycles are not required but encouraged for comparative reference. We will not be disassembling personal bikes. The course is for beginners and experienced riders (no mechanical experience necessary).
This level is designed to give basic knowledge and skills such as:
The level I course you will learn how to do essential service and inspections in your driveway or garage using common tools. You will be able to identify the most needed repairs & perform detailed pre-ride inspections that can help avoid a dangerous accident or costly breakdown caused by disrepair. Keep your bike in top running condition or ensure that service performed by others is done correctly. As a bonus you will learn how to properly prepare your bike for winter/long term storage.
The level II course is a one day course for riders wanting to go the next step. Going beyond inspections and basic maintenance this course dives into the mechanics of what makes your motorcycle work. It explains how the systems interact and lets you get inside the things you can't see such as the pistons, clutch assemblies, suspension, brake calipers and more. Level I is highly recommended even for those with some mechanical experience. With the course tuition at only 2 hours of shop time you will save money the first time you pick up a wrench.
These are some of the topics Level II covers:
Level II explores how all of the parts work together to form complete systems. By learning how things are put together and interact you will be better able to identify and repair problems before they leave you stranded. Level I is the "do it" class level II is the "how does it all work" class. Don't even think about starting that complex job on your motorcycle without taking this course.
Level I is recommended before taking Level II.
How much does it cost?
The Level I course costs $187 and includes a copy of the book Motorcycle Owners Manual by Hugo Wilson. The Level II course costs $250 and is a couple hours longer than Level I.
Courses scheduled at non-PSS locations may have an increased cost to compensate for instructor travel time and setup.
How do I sign up?
You are not required to have your own motorcycle with you at the class but it is highly recommended. The instructors will be able to tailor the content of the course to fit your make/model of motorcycle.
If you have a group of people (i.e. a club) we can take the course to you. Call our office for information about a custom course date and location.
