    Any good repair shops in Stockton area or Bay Area?

    I let one of my friends barrow my grom and he ended up crashing and wrecking the bike. All the fairings on the bike are either cracked or scratched up. The alignment is way off now too. I took it to a local dealership and they quoted me $3,300 to fix the bike. For that price I can just buy another grom. Now I am struggling to find another shop that won't charge me that much to fix it. If you guys know any shops around Tracy, Stockton, or Bay Area please let me know. Thank you.

    Chances are there might be frame damage. Was the bike insured?

    What were the parts they quoted for $3300?

    Have you tried loosening the triple tree and just banging the wheel back in place? Might be all that is needed for it to ride straight.

    As far as good Grom-specific repair shops, I know Big Chris used to work on Groms in his spare time.

    Also, I've had good success with Catalyst Reaction who fixed a crack in my Grom motor. They race their built Grom in a 24hr event.

    Too bad you don't live near me, I just helped my neighbor do a valve lash adjustment on his 2018 grom. He told me the dealer was going to charge him $150 to do the job and I told him to show up at my house at 7am and I will show him how to do his valve lash and what tools to buy.

    He showed up and we did the valve job in under a 1.5hr. I charged him $20 for using my tools and he has a second grom that is leaking oil from the right side crank cover "clutch cover" so I sold him one of my spare gasket $10 and all in all he learned how to do his own valve lash adjustment, learned what tools to buy which would be less in cost than the $150.

    All in all he forked out $30,he also got a couple of pages of printed torque settings for the grom and learned how to do his own valve adjustment. I told him I normally would not charge anything but I like to play Lotto so the money charge him was like tool rental and my fee so I can play lotto on his dime.

    It is insured but I don't want this to be on my record. Also my friend is paying for the damages but I don't want him to pay that much because that is just a ridiculous price to pay.

    Parts and labor were $3300. Parts alone was $1800. I haven't touched the bike ever since I got it back from him besides riding it to the dealership and coming back home.

    You can ask if you can buy the parts online and bring it to them. It will be way cheaper.
