Hm, if it is fork/suspension/shock - related try Marcus McBain. Or, maybe he can refer you to someone.

His email is marcustmcbain@hotmail.com

Because Mark and I have a "history".
A few years back we had a disagreement about a repair and chose to go seperate ways. We're stiil friendly, I see him at the CMRA races all the time, but we no longer do business together.

No matter who you are, how good you are or how hard you work, you won't always make everyone happy. Mistakes will happen, misunderstandings will occur. It's a fact of doing business and life in general.

I'm assuming Billy / WRW has wrenched on this engine in the past. If so, it would probably be best to take it to him.
If not, then my next recommendation locally would be Andy.

that's exactly right Pat....

there will always be disagreements and discrepancies in any business.... believe me, I know.. but I am sorry about your disagreement...I still love you...

Maark,
if you dont want to take to Patrick, then use one of our other sponsors.... try Grand Prix... they are excellent as well...
tell them Trey sent you... or just let them know you are from Motohouston...

wish you the best

Patrick,

I am not in this hobby to make enemies. I love everybody that contributes to motorcycles like a brother. I always want us to be friendly. But if you want to discuss old business you can PM me. Maybe you don't know the whole story? I want to remain friendly with everybody as I'm planning on having more fun at the tracks. I respect and appreciate your help. Everybody's help is appreciated. I need to find some mechanics. That is the point of this thread.
