It does take time. Here is a pretty decent tutorial.

The other thing that I would suggest is small engine repair in shop school. I didn't live in a rural area so we didn't have a Agruculture class. It was called CVAE and was basicly small engine repair. Then in highschool you could go to the Technology Center and they taught you auto mechanics. Its was actualy a realy fun class.

You don't need nothing flashy che. All you need is a little common sense and you will pick things up. Just watch other a people and you will learn a lot. Over time you will become more confident. Remember, motorbike mechanics are very basic so it shouldn't pose t much of a threat!
