Ray C's bike work

So I'm getting ready to bring my bike to Ray C's for some service work. I'd like to put a list together of other members who are interested in giving them a first run with me. So anyone who is interested in..

- Dyno Tuning
- Engine work
- Chassis work

Let me know.

For my bike at least, I'm starting with a valve clearance job and compression check. Also, in case there are members that don't know, we're setting up another sponsorship with them for bike work and especially for engine tuning as they are certified to do powercommander work.

theyre in lapeer. ive had good experience with them, just to pitch in. i bought a couple year old used dirtbike from them, and like 2 days after i was riding it and it suddenly lost all compression. at the shop it had started up first kick. i took it to them and it had a chunk knocked out of the cylinder. yeah so it needed all new cylinder, head, piston, blah blah blah, and i had NO warranty whatsoever on the bike, but they still covered more than half of the work and only charged cost for parts, so i ended up paying like 350 bucks of the $900 bill.

they also just let me use a demo but brand new sv650 for my road test (which was next door). they knew i wasnt going to buy a new bike, but they didnt care they still just let me take it to ride to the test and take the test.

also the salesmen are real cool, not dicks like some of the other ones. ive been to...other stores in the area...where salesmen judge people as soon as they walk in and wont give you the time of day. at ray c's, if you wanna talk to ray jr and ask him specific questions, no prob he comes right out and talks to you. if you are just browsing, ask any question and they will help.

i hate dealers, but if i had to go to one for service or anything, id go to ray c's.

sorry this is so long, im bored at work and im sick as shit wish i wasnt here.

I was in there over the weekend and bought a jacket for the GF. Have been in there a few other times and get a good feeling about the place. It seems they will let you demo just about anything if you are interested. I do most of the work on my bike but if I do need to go to a dealer, I think they would be on my short list.
