EMS and Imperial come to mind for maintanence. Bayside for local parts and gear. Or you can always buy online and ship to Blaine or Pt Bob.

Motomethod | Vancouver's Community Motorcycle Repair Shop

I've never been, but it looks decent and you have the option to rent the DIY facilities.

+1 imperial...mechanic was willing to chat even though he was busy working on stuff. Friendlyness goes a long way in my books. I was referred to him by Dat, partly because he is a certified Duc technician since he used to work at Richmond Motorsport before it closed down

Most of the guys here have modern fuel injected sport bikes but I prefer to take my 79 SR500 to Cypress Motorbike for general repair/maintenance.

That's Alfie. I used to work with him at RMS. One of if not the top Ducati mech in BC. Marv who also worked at RMS works with me at Holeshot now. Both of those guys know their shit.
