For warranty work I'd try Houston Superbikes, and then Lunsford. Out of warranty, Andy if you're not in a hurry.

Andy has saved my on really tough jobs on more than one occasion, BUT because he's a one man show (and he's good) you might have to wait.

Tuning, performance, etc. work then Houston Superbikes since they have the only level 3 certified mechanics in town. Not a warranty shop however.

Routine valves, belts, warranty, etc. work then Lunsfords.

Both shops do good work for a fair price.


The one report I know of out of Mancuso is that they tried to charge a person $400 for a 600 mile service, which is enough for me to never step foot in the place. If they're going to try and price gouge people then may they follow wrecked imports and die a quick death.

Lunsford could not fix an ecu problem with my 1098. They had the bike two weeks and told me to come pick it up. I called Bobby at Houston Superbikes. He pick my bike up on a Tuesday afternoon from Lunsford and called me Wednesday morning to say it was ready to go, with a few improvements to the mapping. Hard to beat that. HSB has done other quality work for me. I just wish they were closer to the island.
