Looking for maintenance course


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know of a motorcycle maintenance course for new owners? I don't want professional qualifications I just want to learn how to change oil, maintain the chain, and that sort of general stuff.

there's no motorcycle maintenance course.. only professional qualification in some schools..

meanwhile, you can see how your mech does all these.. and ask them how to do.. what bike you riding first? Some bike shops may not teach you the technique and if you break your own bike, they will also not be liable for it..

I learn it at the servicing workshops.. but alot of stuff I dun usually do unless required..

Kindly read thru at least the intro section first before decide to post any comments.... thanks... :cool:

 

Please proceed to this website/web link if you guys have any technical issues on Kawasaki Kips/KR150, I'll update the 1st POST as and when there's a new question. Newbies questions on the top as well. :)

U can try Youtube 😂

one possible ways as well.. but anything goes wrong.. he's really on his own.. 

it's best to gain technical knowledge at workshops.. then once you are confident then can watch YouTube.. some YouTube is very very simplified.. that means.. you need to have basic knowledge or even advance knowledge to really do that.. 

some part on the bike might required airgun as well.. those heavy turning parts..

nah.. dismantling usually takes about 15min.. then cleaning about 5min.. check wires and etc.. add "stuff".. another 15min.. change plug 5min.. then ask this and that 30min.. hahahahahaha.. then put back another 15min.. so about 2 hours.. hahahahah...

I want to know what component do what and etc.. so after dismantling.. and I can learn from it.. 😛

sometimes.. the fuel "catch" can get struck cuz using fingers instead of specific tools.. that one about 10min again.. 😂

 

 

if it's on my previous bike.. 5min.. hahahaha.. unplug, unscrew.. put new one,, screw back, plug in.. settled.. hahahaha...

Also, consider where you’re going to dispose used engine too. It’s considered hazardous waste and cannot be dumped into the drain or into the regular refuse bins.
