I Would Need...
I would need to go to the Associate of Applied Science Program (A.A.S.). The A.A.S. is a 2-year program that offers students in-depth preparation for becoming a motorcycle mechanic. Students enrolled in an A.A.S. degree program will get the chance to have hands-on experience with motorcycles. One or more general education courses are also required in topics such as English, Chemistry, and Mathematics.
A Motorcycle Mechanic makes from $24,000 and $36,000 based on experience and knowledge. Motorcycle Mechanics earn a pay level of about $34,000 each year. Of course, if you were up high in the industry and say you worked for Kawasaki, the lowest paid mechanic earns $21,030 and the highest paid mechanic earns $51,650 a year.
Where Should I Live?
Motorcycle mechanics are needed all over the world, but the most common places are in California and Florida. Plus studies show that you will make more money working as a motorcycle mechanic in California than living anywhere else.
What are my responsibilities?
Motorcycle mechanics are classified as small engine mechanic. They are responsible for a range of maintenance and repair issues for motorcycles, motor scooters, all-terrain vehicles, dirt bikes, mopeds, and just about anything with a small engine.
