Motorcycle Mechanic School for the DIY'er
« on: January 18, 2010, 09:32:05 AM »
I think it would be great if there were a motorcycle mechanic school that offered a shorter version of their course for those of us just looking to be a better home mechanic.  Anyone know of such a thing?

i believe there is some online courses through small private schools, but i cant vouch for any of them. i'm an MMI grad, but chose not to go out in the field so i guess i paid for the education to be a home mechanic.

I found the best way is to pull it apart and then put it back together again and a good repair A manual will help.
I started with a 1957 K Model  , Harleys are a lot easy-er to work on than a Jap bike .
so easy a caveman could do a Harley.
