DIY Motorcycle Repair
If your bike breaks down, you have to call the dealer & see if he can schedule in. Then arrange for a tow or trailer. Then you wait and finally you pay and boy do you pay. Then you find that the problems is not quite fixed & you do it again. Stop this madness and Do it yourself. You can do it with training & guidance from Gearheads. You can do quality work because you won't rush it and will do it right. Dealer mechanics are not gods, they started out just like you & many of them are just starting out, so why not you? What are you waiting for start your wrenching! Save money, save time & get quality work.
Have you ever spent 60 minutes working on your knees? Are you trying to figure out how to remove your front wheel without your bike falling on you? Have you ever dreamed to have your own complete equipped garage but the cost to own one is just too high? We have all the solutions here, right at “Your Dream Garage”.
To work on a bike safely and comfortably you need a lift table with a wheel chock. Just like the ones you see at the dealership. It makes you more productive and secure. We have them at Gearheads along with all the tools and machinery that you need to get your service done.
What Do We Have To Offer?
We provide spacious, clean and neat work environment, professional grade hand tools, air tools, electronic tools, the latest and most advanced scan tools, as well as the common vehicle service and repair machinery equipment, and a well-designed casual environment that you will feel very comfortable working here. We also offer low pricing rates and various discount packages to make our service affordable for any average DIY enthusiast.
We would like everyone who enjoys working-on-their own cars to have a chance to save time, money and even get a better quality of work. Most importantly, you will be able to completely unleash your passion. In Your Dream Garage, the customer experience is our first priority. Our goal is to make this place your second home.
How Do You Save
Money By Using Our Shop?
Let’s do some simple math. It would easily go over $10,000 for someone to set up an motocycle work-shop with all the necessary tools and bike lift table. That figure does not even include most of the basic machinery in a shop such as a air compressor, tire balancer, tire machine and hydraulic press. Some tools you would only use once in a few years, which is very cost inefficient. It would take you 400 hours (40 years at 10 hours a year) at our rates to pay the full cost of building the garage we have. You can use our shop one time or as many times as you want for a fraction of the cost. There is no minimum or maximum. It is pay per use.

I have never repaired anything in my life. Can anyone really learn this?
Yes! We all start out the same way knowing nothing. When you learn from someone that has been doing this for a long time, you benefit by their experience in learning about the system, tools and techniques to do the service properly. Not all the info is in a book or Youtube. In fact a Youtube my steer you down the wrong path and may cause you to damage your bike rather than fix it.

We offer several types of classes:
Safety and Basic Use (SBU) classes are designed to provide you with basic safety training on a specific tool or machine.
