I'm in Missouri city. I can help you with that if you wanna come see me..

I'm at work right now until 5pm. I work right off 59 and beltway 8 at Gillman Subaru.



I can show you what to do and how to do it so you can also learn if you want.

yeah man oil change and spark plugs are things you need to know how to do yourself (not hard either, especially on a buell) and you might want to adjust your primary heres a video on that (theres prob videos on how to do everything your looking to do)

I'd have to agree and most of them are really overpriced. There's one on I-10 and highway 6 on the south side of the freeway right in the corner

I was just trying to help out but it looks like you just wanna spend the money and make sure it gets done right! +

I have about 12 bikes right now in the garage working on.. anything from cruisers to dirt bikes and street bikes. I've been working on cars over 4 years, bikes over 2yrs... tools, experience and a "Service Manual" its all.

Good luck!

+1 very true.. those are things you can save money on.
A tune up will run somewhere around 250 with new spark plugs. .. just changing a tire will cost you $45+ per tire...
