mine is in storage this yr due to covid / no job. I did just come back from over on the island also, and I would say going to nanaimo on the 6:45 ferry then riding to swartz bay home is a good loop, if not, Nanaimo, check out few wineries and then mill bay-brentwood bay - swartz bay is a great route.

Finally got my bike back together and on the road after 6 months on my lift. Tranny is rebuilt with Baker parts and new exhaust is deep but I definitely need a tune. Booked a tune with Lonewolf in Nanaimo, he's known to be a guru with Harley Twin Cams.

ICBC rates have sure gone down - between my basic and Guardian 3rd party I paid $1800 for 8 months of road (and 1 year of Guardian). Insured on Saturday and it was under $1100 with everything through ICBC. Bike season is here again!

Hey guys, super new to the motorcycle scene... just bought a 2005 GSXR 600

I live close to Burnaby city hall, any local mechanic that you guys recommend for general maintenance?

burnaby kawasaki has always have had great service... but yes u do ride a GSXR

there are some smaller shops. since you have a 16+ yr old bike, just take it once for general maintainence tune up and then rest (oil change) u can do urself (assuming u can take off fairing).

call around, find a good mechanic and ask for a good diagnostic / tune up.

i know this is out of the way, but vancouver, SE / SW marine drive, and Oak, there is a very good reliable mechanic.

i have to google up his / her name..

No reason why Burnaby Kawasaki can't service the GSXR. They have a good service team.

Imperial Motorcycles is also a good alternative, albeit closer to Metrotown.

Many dealers do not touch bikes over 10 years old anymore, you need to find an Indie mechanic. This is largely due to their 'techs' being more of bolt-on and warranty repair monkey.
