Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki service and repair at mono motorcycles
We would first like to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended our impromptu Open Morning.
What should have been our last Breakfast Club of 2023 was looking in doubt as our usual caterers were unable to attend. A suggestion was made about having an open morning instead with free tea/coffee and cake donations to be made to SERV Wessex Blood Runners.
Our good friend Stu and T offered to make the teas and coffees and we reckon about fifty bikes attended, some people in their cars and we raised £87.57 from donations made for free cake.
Back in the mono motorcycles workshop and we started another busy week. We are really grateful for the fact that Oaklie worked his entire half term with us this week. Thank You Oaklie.
Earlier in the week we welcomed an immaculate Honda CB1100 to the mono motorcycles workshop for Interim Servicing.
We are seeing more and more bikes for pre-winter servicing from savvy riders making sure their bikes are road ready once the warm weather returns.

Yamaha MT-09 ’73 plate, MT-09 ’14 plate and ’21 plate MT 125
It’s been an MT kind of a week this week as we have welcomed three of the Yamaha MT range to the mono motorcycles workshop.
Next up we welcomed an MT125 for servicing and a tail tidy fitting.
Last up we welcomed a ‘14 plate Yamaha MT-09 for some new shoes. Those Michelin Road 6’s should certainly keep the rider upright this winter.
We may think that fuel injection is a modern thing on motorcycles, but it’s been in common use for over 25 years now and is often overlooked.
With this in mind mono motorcycles offer a fuel injection service like no other.
We welcomed a 2005 Kawasaki ZX636r with lack of power, struggling to idle and when holding up the RPM it would smoke quite badly. We drained the fuel tank and cleaned the fuel pump filter.
We then removed all 8 injectors, back flushed and cleaned them and tested the flow rates. We then cleaned the throttle bodies, refitted, and balanced. The Kawasaki now has a stable idle, revs cleanly and has stopped smoking.
Kawasaki Ninja 650
We welcomed another Kawasaki this week. The Ninja joined us for new chain and sprockets and to assess a very sporadic misfire.
As sometimes happens, the bike would not misbehave while it was in our care. However, when the panels were removed to check the plugs were alright, it was found that the main fuse box had broken away from its clip and was hanging upside down. This meant that the fuse box was full of water.
The fuse box was cleaned and dried, some of the fuses replaced and fitted correctly to the bike.
After Daniel had ridden the bike again it was noted that while it cooled down the tank was pressurising. When Daniel took the tank off he found that the breather was blocked. This was blown out with an airline.
Despite the Kawasaki not showing us the sporadic misfire, we are hoping that one of the two issues we found during our investigation might resolve the issue.
We have advised the customer that should the misfire present itself again, that we will need the bike back for a longer period of time to perform some more lengthy test rides under different conditions to try and replicate the fault.
On Tuesday we welcomed a very sorry looking Honda CBR125 to the mono motorcycles workshop.
Sadly, the lady owner had been knocked off the bike in June and it had been sat while she recovered.
The owners mother contacted us and asked us if we could repair the crash damage, service the bike, re-place the fork seals and arrange an MOT. We were of course more than happy to oblige.
The tank had sustained a considerable knock in the crash and although we couldn’t source another black tank, the second-hand orange tank was the most intact we could source at the time.
Oaklie completed the lion share of the repairs, supported by Daniel and I am sure you will agree it looks a 100% better than when it first joined us a few days ago.
Our good friend Stu or “Silverback” as he’s known, dropped by for a service and asked us to arrange an MOT on his v-Max last week. It still makes Daniel chuckle when the v-boost kicks in, I think even Nigel (the gorilla) cracks a smile.
