Tune-Up List
We think the Werkstatt Tune Up is the Best in Town…and here is why:

  • You will always get a copy of the list below with the technician’s notes
  • You get a chart of all measurements before and after the valve adjustment for your records.
  • It includes extra work not included at other shops like brake fluid change
  • We take extra care to let you know if there is anything else wrong with your bike that you should be aware of or that should be taken care of
  • We always perform a safety check, anytime you bring your bike to Werkstatt
We do this to ensure you have a safe ride and you know exactly what we do to your bike and so you can get a better idea of what you are looking at for recommended services in the future.
We have 3 levels of tune ups available: mini tuneup, general tune up and full tune up. The mini tune up consists of an oil change, chain adjustment, air pressure, general lube, and a safety check. A general tune up consists of everything on the list below except the valve adjustment, and full, tune up is the whole list below. Prices vary according to model, but start at $162 plus parts for the mini, $324 plus parts for the general, and from $540 plus parts for the full tune up depending on your bike.
