Diagnose complex faults in motorcycle engine and transmission systems

Assessment tool

Version 1.0
Issue Date: September 2018


This unit describes the performance outcomes required to diagnose complex faults in motorcycle engine and transmission systems and determine the repair action necessary to restore system performance. It involves confirming the existence of a fault, choosing the diagnostic procedure and tools, applying the diagnostic procedure, reporting conclusions and making repair recommendations.

Complex faults are outside the normal scope of a technician’s diagnosis and repair work. They include intermittent faults, multi-system faults, faults introduced as a result of system repairs, and indirect faults caused by the influence of external systems, requiring the application of complex diagnostic processes to resolve.

It applies to those working in the automotive service and repair industry. The engine and transmission systems include those of motorcycles, motor scooters or all-terrain vehicles (ATVs).

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

You may want to include more information here about the target group and the purpose of the assessments (eg formative, summative, recognition)

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.

Competency is to be assessed in the workplace or a simulated environment that accurately reflects performance in a real workplace setting.

Assessment must include direct observation of tasks.

Where assessment of competency includes third-party evidence, individuals must provide evidence that links them to the motorcycle engine and transmission systems that they have worked on, e.g. repair orders.

Assessors must verify performance evidence through questioning on skills and knowledge to ensure correct interpretation and application.

The following resources must be made available:

automotive repair workplace or simulated workplace

workplace instructions

manufacturer motorcycle engine and transmission system specifications

three different motorcycles with complex faults in their engine and transmission systems

motorcycle engine and transmission system diagnostic equipment

tools, equipment and materials appropriate for diagnosing complex faults in motorcycle engine and transmission systems.
