Full Answer

One way to find a good motorcycle mechanic is by talking to other people who own a motorcycle of the same type and manufacturer. Employees at motorcycle dealerships also usually know all the best mechanics in the area. In addition, they can say which mechanics to avoid. Sometimes, motorcycle dealerships have mechanics on staff.

Looking at reviews on customer review websites can also help to find out more about a particular mechanic. However, it is important to remember that customers post information about bad experiences more often than good ones. Meeting a mechanic in person and asking him a lot of questions can also help you determine whether he is worth hiring. During the interview, inquire about whether he is properly certified and insured.
