    Bartels HD in Venice has a Buell loving mechanic, but why need a dealer for a 10+ year old bike? Any decent V-twin shop familiar with Sportsters can do heavy work

    There is a guy in El Segundo ca, That knows all about Buells & EBRs etc...... Goes by the name Cooter, buy him a few beers and he will overhaul your bike in 30 min or less.

    Yes, Cooter is the man. His specialty is roadside wheel bearing repairs.

    Pittboy--I am in WA state and find a way to get down to Fresno and get Chris to work on my stuff. He did the valve shims on my EBR as well as sorted out the weird issue with my XB12Ss--which turned out to be a defective speedo sensor which no one could figure out but he got on it right away. He did such a good job and at a very reasonable price that I got new tires on both bikes.

    Even if you don't get up there check out his website as he is into some really cool stuff.

    Just as a backgrounder, but Chris was one of the EBR dealers that got mushed up with the odd goings on with the sad deal between EB and Hero or what ever happened to wreck the company.

    Fresno is the county seat and completely depressing with all the homeless and unfortunates hanging around. Chris's shop is on the edge of all that. BTW, there are some fantastic underground gardens to take in while you are waiting for your work to get done.

    I will check him out, was looking at the 1190sx before right at the time Ebr support was pulled and it made me really nervous, thus the reason I went with the 09 xb12r, really nice bike. I will contact cooter on the forum for assistance and check out Chris website.
