How Much Does it Cost to Repair a Motorcycle?

Every motorcycle owner should know that a bike requires routine maintenance. Such servicing can cost around $1,000 per year, plus more for routine part replacements or if you have a premium motorcycle, such as Ducati. However, aside from maintenance, motorcycles might need repairs, which can range widely in price for parts and labor.

If you are constantly paying to try to repair the same issue with your motorcycle, you might have a lemon. Discuss your options with a Lemon Law attorney who can assess our rights under California law.

Common Repairs and Costs

The cost of parts and labor for common repairs will vary depending on the repair shop you frequent, the type of bike you have, the economic climate and costs, and other factors. That said, the following are some common motorcycle repairs and what you might expect to pay for them.

Fuel tank replacement – If you believe you have rust in your fuel tank or a possible leak, you might need a replacement. This might cost you $300 to $400 in parts and labor. 

Carburetor issues – A carburetor is essential to your bike’s performance, and it is a complex motorcycle part that combines air and fuel to ensure the engine runs smoothly. Wear and tear can warrant a replacement or a rebuild, and this can cost several hundred dollars. Always get your carburetor addressed by an experienced motorcycle mechanic.

Vacuum leaks – A vacuum leak causes extra air to get into your carburetor and carburetor holder, often due to dried-out or degraded seals. Depending on where the leak is located in the vacuum system, you might pay anywhere from $150 to $1,000 to get the problem fixed. 

Fork oil leaks – If your motorcycle forks have a leak, it can cause friction and result in damage to your bike. Fork leaks often develop due to a lack of fork servicing, though they can happen even on a well-maintained motorcycle. Leak repairs can cost several hundred dollars depending on the fork assembly on a particular bike, as some are more complex than others.

Engine oil leaks – The engine can also leak oil, possibly due to a gasket problem on the oil pan, crankcase, or cylinder head. Some faulty plugs can be easy and cheap to replace, but if more complicated parts are the source of the leak, such as the cylinder head gasket, it can require an engine disassembly. Depending on the specific issue, you might pay $150 to over $1,200 for a repair.  

Like any vehicle, things can go wrong with motorcycles and require repairs. However, if you purchased a motorcycle under warranty in California and have repeatedly tried to repair issues covered under the warranty with no success, you might have a motorcycle Lemon Law claim.

"Pleased with the Service"

Happy to hear from you. I was very pleased with the service you provided. I couldn’t be happier. The timing was excellent. I retired June 1st and didn’t really need the car anymore. I didn’t go out and buy another car. I decided to hang on to my money for a while.

"Beyond Satisfied"

I am beyond satisfied. After being told that I did not have a case by other attorneys, I was referred to Ms. Campbell and I am so glad I called her. During the initial consultation, Ms. Campbell was very thorough and answered all of my concerns. She assured me that this was not an overnight fix, however, it took less than three (3) months to resolve. Ms. Campbell was available every step of the way. I rarely called or emailed her because she always kept me in the loop. Every case is different but I am glad mine was quick and painless.
