Motor Sports Technology

Prerequisite: None

The growing interest in ATVs, motorcycles, and snowmobiles has created an increasing need to maintain and care for these vehicles. In the past, almost every vehicle owner was his/her own mechanic. Today, the vast majority of owners have their vehicles serviced by technicians. In this course, students will learn about styles and designs of ATVs, motorcycles, and snowmobiles, along with the service and replacement process for defective parts. The systems of these vehicles and how they work, including four and two stoke cycle engines, engine power characteristics, fuel, electrical, cooling, lubrication, and exhaust systems are all areas covered in this class. Other featured areas are vehicle chassis, frame, suspension, wheels and tires, tracks, brakes, and the many new accessories that come out each year. This course will consist of lab activities, manuals and textbooks, and lab time to work on personal vehicles.
