    Pauli363 :

    Assuming the MOT is conducted to the same standard on your side of water as it is on mine,
    I have attached a copy of the Motorcycle MOT Checklist - downloaded from the .GOV website today ....

    Cheers  :821:

    I think our tests are done slightly differently.  The first major differences are that NI vehicles only get their first test at 4 years.
    The second major difference is that we have dedicated MOT test centres run by the DVNI, local garages cannot carry out an MOT.

    That MOT list you listed looks like a manually filled in form?  Ours is computerised.

    From the list I'll indicate what was not done:

    no check on headbearings
    only spun front wheel, but never shook side to side to check bearings, and never checked the back wheel at all.
    only had a cursory eyeball around the bike, but never handled the exhaust, final drive, frame, footrests, nor checked the fuel system.
    Never checked wheel alignment.
    I never got off the bike and the examiner never got on it.

    Did check brakes on rolling road, lights, horn and indicators.
