Not sure how the aus $ compares to canadian or US but me and my buddy charge $35 an hour . Thats half of what most of the dealers charge. If you are doing good work I don't think anyone will have a problem paying that amount

Tell em what things they can do to make it easier for you--Depending on the repair---Like they could have all the plastics off etc---When they see your honest and trying to save them $ then word will get around quickly and you'll have a strong customer base in no time---Here there's nothing worse than having to take our bikes to the STEALERS.

I own a small engine repair shop (going on 4 years now) and I charge $55 an hour. I try to work on ATV, street/dirt bikes only but I get a lawn mower from time to time. Man I hate working on mowers.

Yeah mowers and lawn equipment usually arent worth working on. No one wants to spend much on them because its often cheaper to buy a new one
