Recommendations for good Yamaha performance shops in or around the Bay Area

Was wondering if any current owners can recommend or point me to a few good motorcycle performance shops in or around the Bay Area. Would prefer a shop that specializes in Yamaha but doesn't have to be.

Looking for a shop that can assist with performance related items such as exhaust modification, suspension, track prep, etc. Let me know, thanks.

Ya, I've heard good things about Catalyst Reaction. For sure will go check them out to get my suspension tuned. Do you know if they handle exhaust work?

yeah exhaust should be no problem there, pretty sure they're a full shop; i've always seen trackbikes rolling in and out of that place.

Alex @Fastline was my go to shop in Fremont....until he decided to move to Texas.

Now, I do most of my own work, or use Hare Motorsports in Hayward.

Catalyst Reaction for all my suspension refresh work, Dave Moss for setup at the track.

They have their own race program....3 bike race team in the smaller bike class. The do a lot of work on race bikes......especially off season refresh/motor work etc.

Good to know. Would like to check out your shop but Hayward is a bit of commute for me.
