Mechanic services?

Need some fork work done on my sports bike, preferred in SF but willing to travel. I can provide parts.

Shawn is a great guy but he's too busy

+1 for Super Plush.

But you need to bring them just the forks/shock, not the bike.

I've also had good luck with JPH but he's down in SJ so not the easiest for you. He's redone the suspension on my race supermoto, my street supermoto, fixed some fork issues on my NC, and swapped the shock spring on the Aprilia shock that the NC now wears. He even figured out that you can run a longer spring rather than using the spacer that Racetech suggests.

I recommend Adam at City Cycle Werkes, 761 Ellis St, SF, (415) 292-3577 www.citycyclewerkes.com

He worked on my FJR and Versys for the 3 years I lived in SF. No complaints, nothing but positive words to share about him and his work.

Good luck and keep us posted!

Patrick

Superplush is a good spot, I have brought them complete bikes a few times, just costs a bit more to pay them to pull the parts.

Rick down in Santa Clara is great, look up RMC Moto. I had him put in new springs and new fluid, straight forward and competent work.

Superplush is good but $$$ when on bike.

If you're not going to SuperPlush, I can do it for you. What do you have in mind?
