No Nonsense Servicing

Motorcycle Servicing With A No Nonsense Approach

Routine and Bespoke Motorcycle Servicing

Service Schedules for All Manufacturers Are Covered

No Nonsense Motorcycle Servicing

The approach we take in our workshop is one of "no nonsense motorcycle servicing". We give honest advice and transparent pricing. No upsells. No surprises. Simple as that.

Each bike manufacturer outlines a different service schedule or list of checks / routine replacements. Don't worry. MD Racing can cover any service schedule - from your annual fluid changes and checks to your major 12,000 mile service.

It's worth noting that MD Racing conducts several extra checks and modifications during any motorcycle service. These are undertaken in common problem areas that can be eliminated by preventative maintenance.

For anything more than routine service schedules, we can start you off with an hour in the workshop and full use of our diagnostic tools to pin down the problem. If we can fix your bike within the hour, that's all you pay. No extra "diagnostic fees".

If the fix requires more time or replacement parts, we won't start work without your say so. We'll let you know what we find and give you a clear cost for any OEM parts (and the aftermarket alternatives). It's your bike and your choices.

Those of you who are members of the Ducati Sporting Club are welcome to a 10% discount on labour. And don't forget we also offer a collection and delivery service to and from the workshop.

Price Guides for Scheduled Servicing

Typical Motorcycle Service Schedules and Costs

Each motorbike has a different servicing requirement. The manufacturers will recommend a unique service schedule and attention for particular components for every model. The price of those components can vary significantly. The age, condition and the specific model will also affect the time required to the job properly.

As an example, the service costs for a post-2006 Ducati can be as much as 50% cheaper than earlier models. At MD Racing, we only charge you for the time required to service your bike, not a pre-defined average price.

You'll find us cheaper than the main Ducati dealers (some of which are charging more than £90.00 plus VAT per hour for their workshop labour! Compare that to our standard workshop labour hourly rate of £50 excl VAT / £60 incl VAT and it's easy to see how you can get better value with us. And don't forget, we're also factory trained and have all of the diagnostic and specialist manufacturer tools in the workshop to carry out any servicing tasks.
