Motorcycle Mechanic Schools

If you spend most of your free time in the garage tinkering with your scoot, maybe you're ready to do it full-time for pay! Motorcycle mechanics repair and service all kinds of bikes, from heavy-duty hogs to motor scooters (though many choose to specialize in a particular make or model). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicts job prospects for small engine mechanics who have formal training. In some cases, you may even enroll in a distance learning program and study at your own pace.

Making It as a Motorcycle Mechanic

The BLS predicts a steady growth rate to around 22,200 by 2020. Depending on your location, the work may be seasonal, as fewer riders go out in the winter. The median salary for motorcycle mechanics is about $31,980 (Source: BLS, May 2010) per year. This profession requires a training program that teaches you the most up-to-date technology and techniques. (Source:http://www.bls.gov/ooh/installation-maintenance-and-repair/small-engine-mechanics.htm#tab-4). In an entry-level job, you may spend your time on engines, brakes, transmissions, body repairs and ignition systems. If you like taking bikes apart and putting them back together, this may the career for you.
