I have been working @ the largest powersports store in southern Indiana for the last 7 yrs. I worked in both the parts and service department. We sold Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and serviced all makes of motorcycles. I have recently moved to San Francisco and am looking for some partial employment. Do not pay high labor prices; I am much cheaper and just as good! I am very familiar with Japanese bikes from early 70's through current year. I can fix suspension, brakes, top-end motor work, carb sync and jetting, fork seals, etc..I have lots of specialty tools, and contacts within the industry for information. I also have experience with 2-stroke machines, both dirt bikes and road bikes. I prefer to work on sportbikes, but I will work on and have owned a variety of different machines. The only catch is that at the moment I do not have a garage, so you'll have to provide a spot for me to repair your bike. Can supply names and numbers to verify shop experience and local people that have already had their bikes fixed by me. Feel free to contact me with questions, 415-305-6096. elskipador711@yahoo.com Thank you!


Shawn

I charge 50.00 an hour. No charge for drive time unless you live over an hour from SF. You supply parts. I've got lots of manuals and tons of tools. thanks

I may ask for your help on a valve adjustment on my 250. I have the manual myself. Would something like that be something you would be interested? I live in south San Jose, a few miles from the tuesday night starbucks meet.

sweet, i'll keep your name up for records. I'mma get a jet kit soon, and i'd like to get that installed, plus sync the carbs, and then do a valve job. How many hours would all of that take!? On top of that, are you willing to teach a tad while u work? That way i can do it myself next time.

hey faz,
I can do the valve adjustment on your 250! I imagine you have a ex250 ninja? if so we can adjust the valves with no additional parts, maybe a gasket.


rx7elmo,
To put in the jet kit from start to finish is about 2-2.5 hours. However this is to just put the kit in...additionally time MAY be required to get it dialed in. I know some kits, say f2, are almost spot on with the instructions, but others require a little more fiddling. The sync will take about 30-45 minutes. The valve adjustment will take 3-5 hours. 3 hours if all we have to do is strip the bike and check clearances....all are good, button it back up. 5 hours if when we get inside we find out some valves are out of adjustment, we'll then need to pull the cams and replace the shims that adjust the valve clearance on the valves that are out of spec. we'll get the needed shims from a dealer in the area.


thanks

shawn

hey elskipador,

how much would you charge to change out my stock shock and replace it with another stock shock. my bike is in SJ right now and i do have a garage where you can work on it. but i don't have any jack or stands. just wondering how much it will cost.

thanks

Just realized you meant vtr1000 and not vtr250. the 1000 has cartrigde forks, so count on 2-2.5 hours. sorry about the confusion. thanks

Does your garage have any large exposed beams in it? We can hang the rear of the bike very easily. Thats how i put on my fox shock. i've got both front/rear stands and a dirtbike stand, but no lift.....guess i'll be looking into one soon. thanks
