WHERE TO TAKE A NEW SUZUKI FOR UPGRADES

LOOKING FOR A RELIABLE SHOP TO TAKE MY NEW GSXR 1000 FOR UPGRADES.
I LIVE IN MISSOURI CITY AND WORK IN SW HOUSTON. HAD A FEW THINGS DONE ALREADY BY AN UN NAMED SHOP AND IT HAS BEEN A DISASTER THATS NOT GETTING ANY BETTER. LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO UNDERSTANDS HOW TO TREAT A BRAND NEW BIKE. ANY HELP OR COMMENTS WOULD BE GREAT

THANKS

Plenty of reliable shops around Houston, but they're all far from us in the Southwest. I would recommend Motorcycles Unlimited though. A little farther from us but worth the drive/ride.

If you don't go to Motorcycles Unlimited, you don't love your suzuki.

Sounds like the shop that damaged the paint and cluster needs to make it right.

We can do the 600 mile service for you. Give me a call at the shop if we can help

While at Motorcycles Unlimited you can take your keyboard and walk down the street to this place www.computer-hospital.com they should be able to fix your caps lock key.

lol Though he might have been a smarta$$ for the caps lock thing doesnt mean you gotta get pissy for a random net douche.

Motorcycles Unlimited has a GREAT rep on this forum as you can see. as for the paint and scratches. The shop who did the damage should make it right. PERIOD. If youre not wanting to go all the way up to Motorcycles Unlimited PM me for advice on another shop located farther south.
