MOT - Test Criteria for Motorcycles

A place to bang on about subjects close to your heart that affect us all as 400cc riders. general banter is rife, however rudeness and abuse seem to be the norm, If a bit wet round the ears best go play elsewhere. Auto pruning of items 31 days and older

I use http://www.motuk.co.uk/manual/mc_contents.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; it's the official manual on line.

I've also printed out a page and waved it a garage who said a petrol cap has to be locking .. but with hindsight the garage were a bunch of to55ers anyway.

that one raised a giggle.

What's the craic with daylight MOT? Might as well keep it all in one thread.

You need a brake light and it switchgear indicators is fitted they must work but if you don't have the switchgear you don't need indicators?

It's best to ask your mot center how they want to do it but as a rule of thumb if it's on there it needs to work. Technically you don't need a stop / tail light but it's safer to have one, same with a light at the front.
