Good place to get head work done?

Adjusted valves on my crf 4 hours ago and they are tight again. Where is a good place to get head redone for a reasonable price in Houston?

We can do it.
I see you say they tightened up in 4 hours.
How much did they tighten up?
Are you still running stock valves?

I had some heads redone here Texon Motor Center for a car and they turned out/worked great. They were also pretty reasonably priced.

I am not sure if they do bikes, but they did look well established, so I wouldn't doubt it.

A lot. They are really tight. As for the valves being stock, I have no idea. I bought the bike used.
