KTM 300 Fork Seals - Shop Advice

So seems its about that time to replace my fork seals in time for the good riding weather. I did it last time myself and it was a PITA. Anyone have any good recommendations on a shop I can just take the forks into? I'm located in Downtown/Midtown but don't mind driving out a little. Looking for quality work at a good price. Thanks guys!

As mentioned before, JM Racing in the woodlands. There's also EBR down in Dickinson. I'd also throw Bobby's name in there as well at Motorcycles Unlimited. All are excellent and know their when it comes to suspension.

It's a sketchy looking complex but I always take my bikes to him for anything I can't handle on my own, his work and word is solid.
