Apprentice Motorbike Technician
Motorcycle technicians undertake repairs, maintenance and testing of motorcycle engines and related mechanical components. Motorcycle technicians are generally responsible for the up-keep of motorcycles and can perform a series of tasks that include detecting and diagnosing faults in engines and parts; dismantling and removing engine assemblies, transmissions, steering mechanisms and other components; checking, repairing and replacing parts, and reassembling mechanical components. Motorcycle technicians also perform scheduled maintenance services such as oil changes, lubrications and engine tune-ups as well as testing and diagnosing parts and faults often with the assistance of computers. The use of chemicals and machinery is involved, so an understanding of, and ability to adhere to safety requirements is very important.
