First tire removal aloneThose of us that love riding and can’t get enough of it, also know how to make our motorcycle into the perfect machine for us. Wrenching you don’t learn over night, and you have to start somewhere.

I’ve been a wrencher’s assistant for 4 years now, and I’m ready to venture on  my own! I may get bumps and bruises on the way, and may pinch one to many tires, but I will learn, and I will share it with you!

This how to section will start very basic. How to change a tire. How to check chain tension. How to change oil, etc. It will specialize on the motorcycles I currently own.  Which means a Kawasaki KLR 650 and Suzuki DR350.  Though I’m sure more will come.

I will also make sure this section will be reviewed by people a bit more expert in wrenching things than me. And of course, if you see anything that I’m doing that is stupid, PLEASE let me know!
