    I am trying to find a garage in the Reno area where I can work on my bike. It looks like my gasket seal is leaking on my '04 Tiger 955i. Unfortunately I live in an apartment with no covered parking.

    Does anyone know of any shops that rent out bays?

    Baring that, any ideas for a reasonably priced mechanic who could do the job for me? The Triumph dealer here hasn't instilled confidence in me, with what limited interactions I have had with them.

    Thank you.

    What about renting a storage unit, or do you need tools also?

    I thought of a storage unit, but they don't have much lighting, if any. I'm okay for tools, it is just the space I need.

    It looks like the valve gasket is leaking. The bike was stored for 2+ years before I bought it, my guess is it is dried out. A new one is on order.

    As for garage space, not yet. Looking to take it to an independent garage and have them do it, spoke with the mechanic he said the repair should be straight forward.

    Valve cover gasket is easy fix. I'm on the South Shore of Tahoe. Got lots of light. Don't know if this is too far for ya.

    Thank you. Not too far. The part is on order, when it comes in I will send you a message. Not sure your schedule, but I work weekends and have Mon / Tue off.
