Need Good Motor Shop

My brother has an 01 Kawasaki KX250 and we are trying to find a reputable shop to get some work done. The gear fluid seems to be cloudy/whitish in the sight glass generally indicating a bad seal or gasket on the water pump impellar in the lower casing. The gear oil had been changed a few rides before and it seemed to get worse after the last hard ride. Does anyone know of a decent shop in the houston area that has experience with motocross bikes that can do this type of specialized work for a good price? Or any advice on what we should be doing to further analayze the issue. He tried Motorcycles Unlimited but said they dont do engine work of that manner, i figured that was his most reputable, experienced option, so any other ideas are greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Nah, hes not really sure where its leaking yet, so I guess its a matter of breaking the case apart and seeing where the issue is at. I will talk to him and let you know when he can bring it down. Thanks.

Thanks guys really just looking for some good options, I will make some calls and see who I we think is most comptent, anyone else have any suggestions. This is a pretty in depth evaluation, so 2 stroke bottom end experience is a must.

EBR is quality work in my opinion. I don't trust JM racing, they are hit and miss even if ya know the owner and you have "the hookup". I've seen JM do great work and i've seen them do some real bullshit work too.

I've also heard good things about PWR as well.
