The motorcycle test stand is a tool that can significantly affect workshop efficiency if it is strategically integrated following a studied design.
Read on to find out how.

Motorcycle test stand and space planning

Integrating a motorcycle test stand into the workshop is a choice that can prove decisive in increasing efficiency and profitability.

To achieve these results, however, there must be a solid design at the base, tailored to the concrete needs of the motorcycle workshop and mechanics.

To understand how best to integrate this tool within a space, it is first necessary to know how it is used.

The motorcycle test stand allows us to verify the mechanical characteristics of the vehicle so that we can make tailored modifications where necessary.

This allows us to understand that in order to make the most of a test bench, it would be best to place it in a dedicated area but still near the workbench area, so that the equipment needed to carry out interventions is always at hand.

To precisely define the dedicated area, with the help of experienced designers, it is important to conduct an analysis of the space to be renovated or set up, identifying the workflows and where in the path of the vehicle through the workshop it would be best to place the tool.

Another important element to consider is the possibility of installing a fume extractor next to the motorcycle test stand.

The combination of these two tools can be very important: as tests are carried out on the dyno regarding the proper functioning of the vehicle, it is very likely that the engine will also be turned on, producing exhaust gases.

Equipping the test stand with a fume extractor, perhaps with a magnetic nozzle to elevate efficiency even further, allows emissions to be sucked out immediately when they are emitted, nearly zeroing the amount of fumes in the air and making the environment healthier.

Just as lift decks that reach high maximum heights help reduce and prevent mechanics' back problems, fume extractors help combat respiratory problems.


Improving efficiency thanks to the motorcycle test stand

Thanks to this tool, it is possible to monitor:

  • the friction generated between the wheel and the rollers
  • the friction of the secondary belt
  • the friction of the primary or secondary shaft of the gearbox
  • the power of the wheel
  • the consumption

By having access to this whole range of information, mechanics will be able to carry out targeted and workmanlike interventions, guaranteeing the workshop a high level of customer satisfaction.

For us at KIRO, end customer satisfaction is the priority, and we implement each of our projects to achieve this goal.
