Got a motorcycle that needs a repair? You may be tempted to try fixing it yourself. However, before you do take a look at our helpful guide below. If you decide that this repair requires the help of a professional, feel free to visit our onsite service center at either of our locations in Mountain View and Livermore, California.


The first thing you’ll want to consider is your skill level. Even if you’ve never repaired a motorcycle before if you have any experience with car engines or something similar you may find motorcycle maintenance to be relatively simple. However, if you’re completely new to engine or vehicle repairs, we encourage you to take a look at the next step before trying to make any repairs.

Available Information

Motorcycle repairs can be costly. As a result, many owners try to fix their bikes themselves rather than visit a mechanic. As such, there is a ton of information on the internet detailing exactly how to complete various motorcycle repairs. We encourage you to take some time to research your motorcycle’s issues, repair options, and necessary tools. If the tools and parts involved are unfamiliar to you, this may be a sign you’re not ready to try completing these repairs yourself.


If your motorcycle is new and requires repair, you may want to hold off on completing it yourself. Check your warranty to see if your manufacturer will cover the service fee for a professional repair. If this isn’t the case, write a quick estimate of how much purchased parts and tools will likely end up costing you. If the number is a bit high, you might call your nearest mechanic for a rough estimate to see which option is more affordable.

If you’re located nearby in San Francisco or San Jose, California, and are in need of a motorcycle repair we hope you’ll visit us here at CalMoto. Not only do we offer onsite repairs at both of our locations, but we also have helpful parts departments for all of your at-home maintenance needs!
