Dropped my bike over a year ago ... and just basically life took over and never got around to fixing it .... gear shifter snapped and I "think" the tip over sensor is at fault ....

But I've not cranked her in over a year so I just want to get her running again and have a few little things I wanted done/fixed over all.

beyond just getting her running again ....
install new throttle and clutch cables
replace gear shifter
oil change

thanks

Agree. Sonny's shop / whoops was perfectly located and good peoples. Only if buck could open a place and stop playing with boats... But I do think I saw a place in league city on main. Seemed like a mx place but could do what you need done I'm sure.

That would be EBR and that place. I've only used them twice but that was two times too many. Well i guess three times, but iDREAM used to work there and had some forks done. Their work is ok, just customer service and lead times are horrible. If you're not a sponsored rider or buddy of someone there good luck. Took me almost a year to get a head rebuilt there......

I've heard similar stories about this place as well.
