  • I Need Your Help... PLZZ

    Heya Guys,
    Its been well to long before i finally joined your group. But i've reached a time in my life where i need to know more about bikes rather than just knowing how to ride them. i've been on bikes for 10 years (mum didn't allow such fun when i was a kid, so had to wait til i was 18), but thats all i know
    The point is mechanically i don't know shit bout bikes, its rather pathetic as i love my bike so much. i want to get educated but don't know where to get it. TAFE doesn't seem to offer courses and i don't wanna take up a apprenticeship as i work already. i just want to be able to fix small problems if they should arise rather than forking out 300 bucks for a quick fix at the local dealership, and do it as a hobby in my spare time.
    Any help would be great.
    Cheers

    There are a lot of much more experienced people on this forum, but if you're desperate I'm glad to help - just don't ask me to work on modern bike electrics or anything

        Hi and welcome to PSB
        There is some good info in the how to area.
        One option if you are really keen is to find an older bike that is in need of TLC and use that as a learning platform... Find a workshop manual and go for it.
        Being an Australian is not an excuse for being dumb and racist.

            I don't know whether you noticed Marjory, but the criminal fraternity sometimes indulge in practices called pretending and lying.

              google is your friend in these situations, if you want to know how to do a particular thing just search it. take for example an oil change, how to change oil on a motorbike - Google Search

              Also pick up a service manual for your bike from your local kwaka dealer as they have just about everything covered.

              if after all that you are still stuck just come and ask PSB, make sure you include as much detail as possible and the guys here will be more than happy to assist

                PSB is a great place to start... I have learn lots. Also good to join a forum about you respective bike to get more precise info about your bike when a problem arises or just to learn about people issues in general so you improve you knowledge base.

                        Bit unrelated, but I think that statement should be written 'who me?'.
