Spokane, WA area service

Tech section strictly for the FJR. Everything from oil changes & suspension setup's to removing sheep hair from hard to reach places on the bike so that your wife never finds out.

Spokane, WA area service

Post by RodBarnes »

I moved to near Diamond Lake, WA (USA, Zip 99156, North of Spokane) and wonder if anyone has recommendations for a reputable mechanic for servicing my 2012 FJR.  I do the general maintenance myself (oil, lube, tires, brakes, etc.) but often prefer to let someone else dig in to do more involved service.

Allsport completed the transmission recall on my 17 ES. Other than over tightening the oil drain plug, lower fairing bolt and the oil filter, I have had no problems. They did the work on time as promised. I suppose I will find more bolts too tight when I do more maintenance and if that is the extent of the problems I find I am thrilled.

WIll be next year do to the unpredictability of our Governor and his Covid policies. I have a lot of travel going this Fall, so I can't do it then. Probably be around the end of April, first week in May depending on how bad winter is so the east side folks can get across the mountain passes.
