Based in nearby Redhill, Prime Factors Motorcycles are the premier local provider of motorbike repairs and motorcycle servicing for Reigate bikers. Common motorcycle repairs we provide include work on clutches, brakes, tyres and engines.

On this page, we look at some of the most common reasons for bikes breaking down, and how our motorbike repairs and motorbike servicing team are able to fix or prevent such issues. However, if your problem is not covered below, or if you have any other queries, please call us on 0203 727 5678 to speak to one of our motorcycle servicing experts.
Dirty Spark Plugs/Flooded Engine
While this may not be such an issue on more modern fuel-injection engine motorcycles, older models can experience flooded engines caused by dirty spark plugs. We cater for motorbike repairs on all ages of motorcycle, scooter or moped, including vintage models. We recommend Reigate motorists bring their vehicles in for motorcycle servicing at our garage. This provides full peace of mind to our customers, who then needn’t worry about their engine not starting due to fuel injection issues.
Whether it’s operated by cable or by hydraulics, the clutch can strike a Reigate biker down with even a relatively minor failure. While a worn clutch is likely to give plenty of notice that it requires changing, a broken cable or leaking cylinders (either master or slave) can render your clutch useless. If you suspect something is wrong with your clutch system, our motorcycle repairs team will be able to nip the problem in the bud, before it worsens.
Motorcycle gearboxes are simple but tough things, as any Reigate motorcyclist is aware. Over time and under stress, however, they’ll eventually wear and break. Bent selector forks from clutchless shifts, stripped gears or even something as simple as a broken chain may all leave you stuck at the side of the road. Regular or even occasional motorbike servicing at Prime Factors can rectify any problems in your gearbox, ensuring your bike remains in fine fettle.
This type of breakdown can be disastrous in terms of expenses; motorcycle repairs on a broken engine cost a pretty penny! Without regular motorcycle servicing, you could possibly find a piston coming out the side of your engine, or a cam chain snapping. Don’t leave it to chance! Help is at hand for Reigate bike riders at our local garage just a short drive away in Redhill. Don’t forget that if the part needed for your engine isn’t in stock, we can order it and notify you when it has arrived.
Faulty or punctured tyres are the number one reason for motorcycle breakdown. There’s sadly no accounting for a rogue nail in the road or a nasty pothole, but a lot of tyre faults come down to poor maintenance, or damage that could have been spotted early on if the vehicle was taken in for motorbike servicing.
Both our Minor and Major service packages cover a range of motorcycle repairs including a thorough check of tyre condition and pressure. We are #1 amongst Reigate bikers because of our great value motorcycle servicing and motorbike repairs, so come see our experts today and give your pride and joy the due care and attention it deserves.
