AUT-5200 Basic Motorcycle Mechanics

The complexity of motorcycles, as with all motorized vehicles, has increased dramatically in recent years. In the past, many motorcycle mechanics have been self-trained, but recent technological advances have created the need for formally trained motorcycle technicians. This course will serve as a first step in obtaining that formal training. It will also provide the information that a motorcycle owner needs to properly maintain his/her own machinery. Job opportunities in the motorcycle industry, measurement systems, internal combustion engine theory, and riding safety will be discussed. The basic, "pre-flight" checks that should be performed will be demonstrated and a routine maintenance schedule will be presented. Basic tune-up service will be discussed and the various systems on modern motorcycles will be explained. Textbook required.
