Hello all,

I am hoping for a recommendation for a mechanic in WA state. I would like to have heated grips put on and ideally get a switch installed for the ABS. Please refrain from reminding me to do the work myself (apparently I am well aware of my limitations). Thanks, David

You might search the archives of WetLeather. https://www.wetleather.com/

Just noticed, you'd have to sign up first. WetLeather is an old school listserv centered on Seattle. I've been a member, but it's sort of like trying to sip from a fire hose at times with high traffic, (or used to be). I was a member of OBS listserv, more Portland centric, for many years. It's a very diverse crowd with a lot of great local knowledge. You may find it interesting enough to join and partake. I'm sure the collective knowledge there would offer several shops or indi mechanics of good repute.

Best wishes on finding someone to meet your needs.

Guessing your location, north central WA? Desert Valley in Prosser has a good reputation.

Whatever you do, stay away from Ride Motorsports in Woodinville. Their service department is not capable of changing air in tires.

I would highly recommend Wenatchee Powersports. They have Gold Certified Yamaha techs.

Anywhere in the US, if a Yamaha dealer has Gold Certified mechanics, then you have no worries about having the repair done right. These special group of guys and gals are master mechanics that can do any kind of diagnostic and repair with zero mistakes.

Ping Jeff Hobart Haar on the PNWTenere Facebook page. Good guy. Central WA if I recall.
