5,000 Mile Service

The 5k service is the most critical of all scheduled services: the critical adjustments, accessible fastener torques, condition of drained fluids.

We follow service operation guidelines to ensure that when we finish with your motorcycle, it is in top condition. We reference a service checklist that is exactly the same as the one listed in your owners manual and use factory approved parts and lubricants.

Your bike is taken on a test ride to ensure it rides correctly and each point is checked off after inspection.

Oil and Filter Changes

Most motorcycle manufactures recommend to perform oil change services every 3000 miles to ensure longer engine performance. We use petroleum, synthetic blend, or full synthetic oils to suit any engines needs.

Did that pothole cause your ride to talk back? We’ll get it dialed in for you.
