Motorcycle Diagnostics UPDATE
Many motorcyclists are enjoying extended riding days and sales of used bikes are hitting record figures. New bikes continue with healthy sales despite the supply chain suffering. Newer used bikes are selling like hot cakes. Most have complete service histories of these many will find their way for service, repair and tuning to independent workshops.
If you are going to be taking your machine in for work, don’t forget to ask whether they have motorcycle diagnostic equipment and the latest software to cover your bike. Some bikes will flash up a service light at the slightest movement of a body panel or twitch of an added electrical accessory. Getting an after market accessory? Make sure the bikeshop is able to implement the change and keep your electronics sweet.
The most savvy motorcycle workshops will already be offering a full diagnostic service, those that don’t will be missing out on your business. A recent survey revealed that once a new bike has undergone a couple of visits to the main dealer customers are more likely to seek out a local specialist, one that is able to offer a ‘one-stop’ workshop. The last thing they want is cost and time needed to revisit the main dealer just to get a dash light switched off.
