I just had my 900ie Supersport tuned at Crooked River in Akron: she is like a totally new bike. They did a great job - valves, belts, TPS and throttle body sync. The engine is tighter and more free revving than ever before - and the response is smoother all the way up the revs now!! She used to have a constant 'kink' at about 6500 revs but it is all gone now.
Eric the service manager/chief tech fussed over the bike like a parent, enthused about how well the engine was performing after 37,000 miles and filled me in on how to keep her going for many more. All this and finished exactly when they said it would be.
If I had a ducati, maybe I would. I use a shop called Riders Choice in Cleveland. Or I bring my bike down your way to this guy that does work on the side. He works out of a well known shop by you, so I don't want to put him out there.
