Patrick has racetech'd 4 bikes for me soo far, including an '04 1000rr like yours. I've always been pleased with the performance both on and off the track.

Patrick has helped a lot of people on this site. and provides excellent service.
He also has a Maintenance For Dummies class on Saturday's, once a month I think. And those classes get full.
How to unscrew a oil drain plug
How to screw in a spark plug
How to tighten a chain adjuster bolt to set proper chain slack
How to unscrew an axle nut and remove a wheel
etc.. etc.
Sorry dummies, I could not help it

Who did yours??

Road and Track Suspension in San Antonio, but I'm biased.

Racetech certified, but I ONLY do custom stacks because recommended stacks are not right for Texas tracks. I also do Ohlins, Penske, Elka etc.

And there are ways to do each one of them wrong. Look at it this way - he could be earning more service money by fixing botched repairs instead of showing newbies the right way to do it.
