Hands-on Workshop – Basic Motorcycle Service

SKU: KK-C-SERVICE Categories: , Tags: ,


All those moving parts in your engine will destroy themselves without good oil!
Generally you’ll want to change oil ever 5000km or so – Is it time for an oil change? Is your shifting feeling clunky?

Learn how to inspect, top-up and replace your engine oil. Keep the bike running smoothly and performing safely.

Bring YOUR bike in and complete a service- learn to do it the right way, what to look out for, and when to do it, alongside a professional.

This workshop will cover the following topics as required:

  • Learn about different types of oils, service intervals and warning signs of running low
  • Learn what to look for in old oil for symptoms of engine problems
  • Learn about oil filters and crush washers
  • Change your engine oil

You WILL need parts for this workshop, we can do this for you, or you can source your own.

Parts for a typical 80’s Japanese Motorcycle are about (give or take):

  • Oil (we stock Motul 5100 10W40) – $50-$80
  • Oil filter – $15
  • Crush washer – $2
  • KK Members get 10% off

This is an introductory, hands-on workshop, where a trainer will work alongside you and a few other riders to complete the service. Roll on in, have a coffee or beer, and get wrenching!

If you are not sure if your motorcycle is ready for new oil, most bikes require new oil every 5,000 – 7,000 km. Check your manual for specifics. Otherwise, please swing past and we’ll check it out! (at no cost, of course!)

Drinks and snacks are provided.
