BASIC MAINTENANCE COSTS

 

Basic Labor Rates:

Typically I charge $40 an hour for misc. maintenance (clean machines get a $5 discount). (That's 1 hour of real work not 30 min working and 30 min something else) This typically will include things like welding (yes, I do steel frame repair)  and electrical troubleshooting and YES- WASHING YOUR DIRTY BIKE! :-p . (YES I HATE WORKING ON DIRTY MACHINES, SO BRING IT ALREADY WASHED AND I'll GIVE YA A DISCOUNT ON THE WORK I DO. If it's dirty, I charge $20 to clean it. Dirty means very oily, greasy, muddy, sand pouring out and making a sand castle on my garage floor. (yes all stuff I have dealt with)

Basic engine tune-up: $60 parts and labor (most models)
Includes the following:

  • NEW Spark Plug
  • Oil Change (and filter if applicable)
  • Air Filter Cleaning (replacement of filter is what ever part costs. no extra charge on labor to install new filter)
  • Basic Carburetor cleaning and adjust carb to tune it up (will change needle clip height if needed BUT no re-jetting included in this)
  • Adjust brake and throttle cables
  • Lubricate chain
  • Lubricate swing arms bearings/bushings (if applicable)

Carb Rebuilding and Tuning: $100 (most models)
Includes the following:

  • Complete carb rebuild (new gaskets, seals and jets)
  • Full carb tune-up (includes re-jetting and tuning for best possible performance)
  • NEW Spark Plug
  • Oil Change (and filter if applicable)
  • Air Filter Cleaning (replacement of filter is what ever part costs. no extra charge on labor to install new filter)
  • Adjust brake and throttle cables
  • Labor on cable replacement is FREE but price on parts are chargeable)
  • Lubricate chain
  • Lubricate swing arms bearings/bushings (if applicable)
  • Basic power washing of machine (gets it fairly clean. I hate working on dirty bikes)
