Default Recommend repair shop/person in Vancouver?

Hi All,
My 2003 Kawasaki KLR650C is currently on route from Far Eastern Russia to Vancouver. The bike will go into overwinter storage in Vancouver and I plan to resume my RTW next June. The Russian roads have taken their toll on the bike. Whilst I have the technical ability to make the repairs I don't have the compliment of tools on-board to carry out the repairs and so I wish to seek the services of a repair shop or an individual who is competent in making such repairs.

The main work needed is replacement of the steering head bearings and whilst at that to strip and rebuild the forks. There are some additional minor works also.

Would really appreciate recommendations for someone in the Vancouver area who is competent and priced reasonably for doing these kinds of repairs.

Kind Regards...
Declan

Not sure Dave is the guy you want at this time. He is currently preoccupied with trying to get a new house built and is busy at work. He is domicile challenged right now. Not sure he has time to work on his own bikes let alone someone else's. My $0.02.
