Tim/all- I did a repair on my G5500 el rotor.  I needed a position pot-it was available through Yaesu parts right away.  Depending on what you need to have done, your mileage may vary.  You could always ship the whole thing to Yaesu.  You can get lots of advice here on the bb.

Hi All, 

I have a Yaesu G5400b controller with a kenpro az/el rotor. From my 
understanding, yaesu was taken over by kenpro and the parts inside the az/el 
rotor are the same as in a yaesu 5400 setup. Anyway, my rotor is in need of 
repair and it seems there is a shortage of people who do these repairs, not 
to mention have parts on hand to make the repairs (apparently replacement 
parts from yaesu seem to be in short supply). Can anyone recommend a 
technician for this who might have the parts?
