Good cheap depedable place to get a 21 point inspection?

Im having some issues with my bike all build up at once, im not a motorcycle mechanic but i know cars but i dont trust myself under this. Anyone know a good, dependable, cheap place to get a 21 point inspection and able to get it fixed there without having them lie to me to get more money?

the techs at Motorcycles Unlimited can do a 23-point inspection for you. It's normally offered to people that have purchased a new-to-them motorcycle and want to make sure it's in good/safe running condition. Anyone there can help you, and don't be put off by haythamboi600's attempt to be funny. Also, most motorcycle dealerships will also offer a similar service, which should cost you no more than a half hour of labor (~$35).

Parick will tell you what it needs and will not try to get you to spend money that does you no good... he has actually refused to sell me something because when I told him what I wanted to do, he said what I was asking would not accomplish that...he could have made some money but turned it down telling me that I would be wasting my money. He will sell you what you need, but not gouge you.

Not the inspection the op was referring to. You are talking about the DOT Inspection. He just wants to know what all might be wrong with his bike.

Not the kind of inspection he was talking about. Although I am in need of a state inspection so I'll be seeing you guys next week.

Motorcycles Unlimited is a trustworthy place. Just avoid the x-point inspection lingo and let them assess the bike.
