Need mechanic Seattle

Can anybody recommend an astute mechanic in Seattle or North Puget Sound?

Thanks
Gary

BBRP in Bellingham
Brian Billings is an outstanding wrench.

What are you looking to get done? I've done most stuff on mine except for valve clearances-not going to bother until I hit 25k at the earliest. Did my plugs the other day and they existing ones were in perfect shape.

One service department I trust is Bellevue Kawasaki, I wouldn't buy another bike from them, but the service guy does an excellent job. He's worked on a number of my bikes over the years.

Lake City Honda/Kawasaki also has a good reputation, but I've never been there, but always hear good stuff about them.

Bicyclebob & Machog,
Thanks for your replies, I'll check out BBRP.
Machog, I have a problem with the oil pressure light, it is intermittent, only at idle or low speeds. It is rare for me to go to a dealer for service, we (my buddies and I) can fix almost anything, but can't figure this out. BTW, I took my KLR into the Lake City shop last year for a warranty repair, I only got two miles down the road and the bike was throwing hot oil onto my right leg, The "mechanic" had stripped the head bolts and just put the bike back together without fixing his mistake(any twelve year old kid knows what to do when he strips a bolt). That is my first and last experience at that shop.
