Ride Straight With ProBike
As a firm that specialises exclusively in the supply of workshop tools and equipment for motorcycles and quad bikes, ProBike Ltd is able to fully understand its clients’ particular needs. Therefore it is little wonder that the company has grown over a period of twenty years to become the UK’s leading workshop equipment specialist.
The latest alignment products available from the Northampton based firm are the Probat alignment tool for motorcycles and the Proquat, suitable for ATVs. These German manufactured laser aligners offer, reports ProBike, a very quick and accurate method of measuring motorcycle or ATV wheel alignment. Two separate laser line generator modules project vertical laser beams from the rear wheel forward, striking the screens attached to the front wheel. Viewing the position of these beams on the front screens provides the operator with instant, easily readable information about the vehicle’s current alignment and camber settings.
The front and rear assemblies can be easily fitted to the wheels by a sole operator using a simple spring tensioned clamping system, ProBike adds. This allows the user to fit these assemblies and carry out measurements in a matter of minutes.
The supplier states that the benefits offered by Probat and Proquat, both to dealers and vehicle owners, are numerous: For dealers, not only is new income generated through alignment services – the high tech nature of the equipment will enhance a business’s profile with customers and insurers, and the ability to check for alignment and chassis problems permits the negotiation of a better trade in deal. Customers receive the bonus of reduced tyre wear, improved handling, along with faster insurance assessments.
