IN FOCUS: Complete Motorcycle MoT Bay Package

Bay 1A GETECH Class I & II MOT equipment package incorporates a GE5418 double laser headlight beam setter, GE2 roller brake tester and an ancillary pack containing all the required signage, MoT notice board & tools, wheel alignment bars and hand held decelerometer with mounting bracket.


The GE5418 headlight tester has been developed to give testing stations the best accuracy possible when measuring beam patterns and this is achieved with a double laser system to align the setter to the presented motorcycle and to also identify the true position of the headlamp bulb itself. The unit is offered as standard within our MoT packages for its superior capability by comparison to other manufacturers mirror/visor models.

The GE2 roller brake tester has been specifically designed to test all motorcycle and sidecar combinations and is also capable of accurate measurement of standard and split braking systems and those motorcycles fitted with ABS and TCB systems. The roller chassis itself is bi-directional and includes as standard an integrated weighing system with large diameter resin bonded gritted rollers to minimise the effects of tyre flexing during the measurement test. Controlled by an infra-red remote control system data can be automatically assigned to each braking system (front/rear/sidecar) so that the data can be re-played to the tester on the large LED display for later analysis. This enables the tester to concentrate on conducting the test rather than noting down the test data as it is acquired.

The Bowmonk BrakeCheck is a fully self-contained, portable, battery-powered brake meter to test and report on vehicle brake efficiency. Designed to be self-compensating, the instrument will indicate on the LED screen when it is positioned level enough to perform a brake test. A generous tolerance ensures “level enough” is easily achieved. All operations are performed using only three buttons on the unit. Test results can be printed out if an optional infra-red printer is purchased.

The complete ancillary pack contains all the other minor equipment required for your test station to be approved including a full set of MoT tools, an MoT notice board, full set of signage and a set of aluminium extruded wheel alignment bars.
