About the Author

Charles Everitt has been riding and working on motorcycles for nearly four decades. His first bike, a 1969 Bultaco, provided an excellent apprenticeship in all the things that could go wrong on a motorcycle.

While getting his journalism degree, Everitt worked as a line mechanic in a variety of motorcycle shops. After graduating, he spent 25 years, on staff or as a contributor, writing tech articles, road tests, features, and other stories for virtually every major street-bike magazine in the United States, including Cycle Guide, Cycle World, Cycle, Motorcyclist, Rider, American Roadracing, Sportbike, and others.

Although Everitt currently shares a hovel in Beverly Hills, California, with his wife Kathryn, he hastens to point out he most definitely is not rich.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction for novices June 2 2010
Format:Paperback
I'm building up the nerve to tackle some upgrades and servicing on a new-to-me motorcycle after many years without a bike. I've read extensively in an excellent on-line forum dedicated to my model how "simple" it is to work on this low-tech motorcycle. Even after repeatedly reading detailed postings about how to perform some projects and studying the Clymer manual for my bike, I'm still not 100% confident. I got this book a few days ago and find that the text is very clear and the large colour photos are a real asset for a novice such as myself. The book is very well organized and should help me become a proficient amateur mechanic(which is quite a transformation for someone who didn't even know what a gear puller was last month!). This is probably the best 'how to' book I've ever read in any subject area.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motorcycle Repair March 13 2010
Format:Paperback
I was a little sceptical when I bought this book as it was so general. I have been maintaining my own bikes for ten years now. I was pleasantly surprised as the book is well written, with color photos, and has many useful instructions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this book! Nov. 5 2008
By Thomas Truthsayer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good manual. I did not have any background in motorcyle mechanics and wanted to service and maintain my motorcyles. This is a good manual to do that. As a newbie, clear pictures, instructions, and topics on how to do various things that are normally needed on bikes for service/ maintanance made me a happy camper! Now I have a better idea what is going on in the engine and on the bike and I am not tricked so easily by the garages any more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book for the newbie Oct. 5 2009
By J. Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Nice colored pictures and detailed explanations on how stuff works and how to do your basic mc maintenance.
The book is nicely laid out by related components/systems, explanations on what that specific system does and how it works are provided before taking on short projects related to that system's maintenance.
I just feel a couple of projects are not explained well enough.
