For men and women who have the will to service their own bikes and lack only the know-how, this book has it all: basic, easy-to-use information about repairing and maintaining pushrod V-twin motorcycles from someone who really knows the nuts and bolts. Sara Liberte's primer begins with the fundamentals-from wheel size and tire pressure to knowing your shop manual and the tools you'll need-then moves on to the basics of maintenance. Changing oil and other fluids, replacing gaskets, gauging normal wear and tear, inspecting chains and belts and adjusting tension: these are just a few of the topics Liberte covers in complete and clear detail. She also discusses the charging system, battery charging, terminal maintenance, and simple wiring techniques-and, critically, troubleshooting, whether on the road or at the shop.

”What a great time for a book like this to be published. With more riders owning a one-off custom V-twin motorcycle, there’s a need to learn about the repair and maintenance of that motorcycle. Sara Liberte is one of the few female wrenches who really knows her stuff.

“Riders with some technical brain-power will appreciate the 21 project descriptions that include how to change a tire, how to install an upgraded starter and how to install a performance exhaust. Riders like me, who’d rather leave it to the experts, will still learn a thing or two from this book about the workings of their motorcycles.”

“Sara makes her knowledge your knowledge in easy-to-understand language. If you’ve never changed a spark plug before reading this book, you will have an understanding of what spark plugs do and what their condition can tell you about your engine after reading the ‘Change Your Sparkplugs’ section. This gal knows what she’s talking about – and knows how to tell you ...
“I couldn’t find anything but good advice in this book. If you’re new to motorcycling or just need a good place to begin your learning curve, this is the book for you.”

“Finally a basic motorcycle repair and maintenance manual for the masses. Sara Liberte, a female motorcycle artist and bike shop owner has given us a concise, photographic and common sense guide to owning a motorcycle. Although Liberte is every bit a woman, this is no ‘girly’ motorcycle handbook. Liberte has cut her teeth in the hot rod and motorcycle world.”
