Pre-MOT Check?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Since upgrading to my SV650, my 2012 YBR125 is no longer in use and am planning to MOT (First MOT) and sell.

Metal has rusted in some areas since I have not been using it, so I plan to sand that off and repaint where necessary. But that is just cosmetics.

What should I be checking before the MOT?

How do I pick up any faults myself before taking the bike?

I would like to note I have always serviced the bike myself so MOT will be first official check.

Brakes are fine, back one squeaks a little but works just fine. Recently replaced brake shoes/pads. Fluid levels are fine. No binding on brakes.

Chain has a couple thousand miles on and has about that remaining, well lubed and conditioned.

Steering stem rotates freely from lock to lock, no snagging cables.

Oil replaced, no leaking.

Engine runs fine, starts instantly, no problems.

tyres are fairly new, plenty of tread.

all lights working correctly.

Is there anything I have missed? Not a lot to a single cylinder 125.

Thanks in advance for any replies
