Maintenance Schedule

Maintenance Schedule

Your bike needs a regular tune up by an Authorized Tern Dealer. Below is our recommended tune-up frequency based on how often you ride, and under what conditions.

IMPORTANT!
All bikes go through a normal break-in period. That’s why we recommend all our riders get a quick tune up one month after purchase so that the dealer can adjust cables and other key parts.
