MCN Fixes is available now for all your DIY needs. And while there is nothing more satisfying than getting the spanners out and working on your bike, you will also save money in the process.

Remember, every hour you spend getting your hands dirty is an hour you don’t have to pay a professional mechanic, leaving you even more cash to lavish on that new exhaust system, upgraded part or even a bit of new riding kit. So why don’t more of us attempt basic home maintenance?

To start with, working on a bike can be intimidating. There is always the nagging thought at the back of your mind: ‘What if I get it wrong?’ But it’s just nuts and bolts and armed with a good tool kit and a bit of patience there are loads of bits of home maintenance that even the most novice of mechanics can easily complete, which is where MCN Fixes comes in.

Throughout this special magazine we will guide you through a variety of simple to slightly harder jobs you can do in your own garage or shed, which should give you the confidence to pick up the spanners and give it a go. Our step-by-step guides are aimed to be as comprehensive, yet simple to understand, as possible while also outlining any potential pitfalls or areas to exercise extra caution. But remember to approach each job with care.

MCN Fixes contains literally hundreds of motorcycle maintenance tips from the team at MCN that will save you thousands of pounds. Covering the following areas; wheels and bearings, engine and drive, bodywork and electrics and suspension. Plus there’s expert help on buying and selling, top tips for touring and general hints and tips to help you get the most of owning your bike like how to lay up your bike over winter, fitting security to your garage and tips for cutting insurance costs.

MCN Fixes is on sale now in WHSmiths or order online and get free UK P&P.
