I am certain that you agree on the fact that consumers are entitled to the right to choose where and how their motorcycle, car or other type of vehicle is maintained or upgraded. The point of “The Vehicle Owner’s Right to Repair” is to protect your freedom to choose how you take care of your vehicles, be it your private garage, your driveway or a trusted independent shop , and to ensure that everybody has access to all the information required to complete service and repairs.
Vehicles, including motorcycles, are becoming increasingly complex with the addition of more and more computer technology, and that is only going to increase in the future. Ready access to accurate service and repair information from the manufacturers is essential to the safety and well being of the entire American motoring public.
The Motor Vehicle Owners’ Right to Repair Act, which was introduced by Reps. Edolphus Towns (D-NY), Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and George Miller (D-CA), would require vehicle manufacturers to make the same service information and tools capabilities available to independent repair shops that they provide to their franchised dealer networks. At the same time, the legislation provides vehicle manufacturers with strong protections for their trade secrets unless that information is provided to the franchised dealers.
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) encourages its members and all motorists to visit RIGHT TO REPAIR or to send a letter to each of their congressional representatives, urging them to support the Right to Repair Act (HR 2057) by adding their names to the list of co-sponsors.
