London bike mechanics?

Any recommendations on someone for basic work? Ive never worked on a bike before so just prefer someone with more experience or if anyone who has done it wants to pop buy this weekend i can feed you and get your bike washed nicely

change oil/filter
install brake lines and flush fluid
flush coolant
change battery
remove tank, drain fluid and clean

CBR600rr-7. Im located walking distance from Ace Cafe.

London bike mechanics?

It's all easy stuff and ready info on here. And if you were to run into some trouble there is always someone in here willing to help out the big plus is it's cost saving.

And it nice to learn and be independent.


My simple build.

it's all basic stuff, even i have taught myself to do these things and before i had never worked on anything. just make sure you read a good manual and there are loads of guides on here, just do a search.
good luck

Good to tinker with your own bike, especially the maintenance stuff. Get a Haynes Manual, they are worth their weight in gold trust me!
