Fixit Motorcycle Mechanics offer a cost conscious workshop labour rate of £37.50 per hour plus VAT for servicing and repairs.

The service times below are a guide only which may vary due to factors such as the type of bike, fairings, fitted luggage systems, etc. They are based around a four cylinder 600cc sports bike. For scooters and small motorcycles the times would be roughly half of those stated. If you would like a quote, please call us on 01275 217020 or use the contact form.

We can also tailor servicing to your requirements. If you are following the manufacturers own schedule or just need certain items such as valve clearances or throttle balancing carried out, we would be happy to quote.
