Do You Need a Motorcycle and Scooter Service and MOT?

Taking care of your motorcycle is vital for maintaining its performance and extending its life. Like any vehicle, motorcycles and scooters require regular oil changes and proper fluid maintenance to keep them functioning correctly.

By taking your motorcycle or scooter for regular servicing, and having proper safety checks carried out by a professional, you can prevent expensive breakdowns and keep the engine of your motorcycle or scooter running as efficiently as possible.

Whether you have a puncture and need a new tyre, or you require an MOT for your motorcycle or scooter, a motorcycle service and MOT specialist can help.

What Does a Motorcycle and Scooter Servicing Specialist Do?

A motorcycle and scooter service and MOT professional will carry out a number of tasks, including:

  • Motorcycle and scooter MOTs: Specialists can cater to all makes and models of scooters and motorcycles. They can also provide full engine rebuilds and comprehensive general motorcycle and scooter servicing.
  • Motorcycle and scooter repairs: A specialist can also provide a repair service — which can cover anything from a blown bulb to significant engine work — and can perform bodywork repairs, such as paint jobs and plastic welding on damaged panels.
  • Motorcycle and scooter inspections: A motorcycle and scooter servicing expert can check tyre pressures and inspect the tyres for cuts, abrasions or uneven wear. They may also check the spokes of the wheels to ensure there is no damage to the rims. A specialist can also ensure your battery acid is at the proper level and inspect your vehicle for cracks or problems caused by vibrations.
