Motorcycle Frame Straightening & Repair
Damaged motorcycle frames are one of the worst situations an owner can experience after an accident. One always asks the same questions.
- Should I replace the frame?
- Should the frame be straightened or repaired?
- Will my insurance cover the repairs?
- What about a salvaged title?
- Will my motorcycle handle properly?
At Velocity Calibrations, we believe our motorcycle frame repair system addresses all these questions. In addition, we use the latest technology to straighten and repair your frame back to proper factory specification. This helps keep your downtime to a minimum and more cash in your wallet!
Analyze the Frame.
The first step in our process is to measure the motorcycle to see if there is any damage and where. This process is done using the Scheibner Mega-M.A.X. system. This system is repeatable and highly accurate.
What does this mean to you? The system takes out any human element which controls unnecessary errors and allows us to the repeat the process and get the same measurement results. And when we say “highly accurate” we mean it! The systems measure in 1/10ths of a millimeter and 1/10ths of a degree.
Once measured, the system compares your measurement against the factory measurements for your motorcycle. The system has a reference database of over 1200 motorcycle frames to compare to. This tells us if your frame is bent and if it should be repaired.
One thing to note is sometimes a frame is too far out of alignment to repair or straighten. Our experience and training allow us to give you an accurate assessment on whether the repairs are an option or not.
And best of all we provide you with a Certificate for your motorcycle.
This information includes what your motorcycle specs are, what the factory specs are, and the deviation between the two.
This provides great documentation to prove the motorcycle frame is straight.
Straightening Your Frame.
Straightening a frame requires finesse, brute strength, and the know-how to get the motorcycle back in alignment. For this we use Globaljig’s highly accurate universal system called the “Motojig”.
The Motojig is a great compliment to the Mega-M.A.X. that allows us to know exactly how to straighten the frame and where. Think of the Mega-M.A.X. as the measuring tape, and the MotoJig as the hammer.
Using heat and hydraulics, we push and pull the frame back into proper specs using the measurements we originally took. This gives us a guide to know how to fix your frame without overextending the metal.
Once the motorcycle is back into alignment, we take a final measurement to verify your motorcycle is back to factory specs. Once completed, your motorcycle is assembled and is ready for pickup.
The best part about the process? From start to finish your motorcycle is completed in a matter of days and average bills are $500 to $800 depending on the severity of the damage.
