Unhappy Seattle WA bearings over July 4

Hello

This is a long shot and I hope that I have the area of the forum.

I'm on a cross country trip from NC. Right now I'm in Seattle WA. My front wheel bearings are beginning to go. Does anyone on this forum know any dealers or independent places that can do a bearing change within the next day or so. It's 4th of July tomorrow and all of the HD dealerships are closed along with most of the indepents.

If anyone has any suggestions on where to go local or within 2 hours of here. Please let me know.

My bike is a 2009 Sportster 1200C. Standard 21 inch spoke wheel

Thanks

Brad

If you have your passport and feel safe enough to drive the distance to get over the border, the shops in Vancouver and Langley, BC will be open.

I didn't think of that!
I only have my Driver license.
I'll have to check on that.

Thank you

That was a great idea but everything that I can find online says that I need a passport or birth certificate. I don't have a passport and I didn't bring my birth certificate.

So I'm here until Thursday at least

You might try these guys, if not they probably could point ya in the right direction (Magic cycles, Spanaway,wa. # 253-455-0439 )

They’re about 2hrs south of Sea.

Thanks for posting.
They were open today and took me right in. Within an hour I was out the door with the new bearings installed

I can't recommend them enough.

And thanks for telling me about the shop
