Recommended Posts

ive been on this site since 2004 and in 2007 i decided to change my career.i became a motorcycle apprentice mechanic.it was something i always wanted to do but life has a funny way of changing your path for you.in 2005 i bought a brand new drz400sm and this site soon got me addicated to modding my bike.the next thing i knew i was working on bikes in a small shop and it just went from there.i have to thank Eddie(Burned),Eric(Bronco) and a few others here on the site for there knowlege.so anyway as of nov 15/2011 i became a journeyman motorcycle mechanic..WOOHOOO!!

Outstanding... So few do well as motorcycle Techs, and from what I've seen, even fewer enjoy the job. Very cool you seem to be doing both...

As a second career I'd love to figure out how to work on bikes as a living, but it's just not in the cards.. Done right, your going to start at the bottom,,, and , well Im not willing to get paid crap for 10 years while I work my way up.

so ... which bikes dont you like working on ?

i used to have my preferences ... years ago

Some guys are selective on what they work on...A mechanic I know of ,won't work on anything that's more than 20 years old...He refers to them as pieces of sh*t.....:lol::)

funny you say that haha,im a suzuki tech and the one bike that i dread is a first service on a c50.the valves are a biatch and they have to be checked on the first service.ive done so many now that i just check the clearence by feel which makes the service go way faster.other than that i hate working on 20 year old bikes that are falling apart:bonk:
