hey guys, I'm looking for someone from around the Brooklyn area (anywhere is ok tho) that has the ability to do a tune up on my 01 Sv. It needs clutch adjust, chain done, tires changed ( I have tires- if you cant thats ok) and I think it needs an oil change and (carbs done as well-if thats not possible so be it). I can spend in the neighborhood of $300. I know it not much for the work but if you need a room cleaned, or a garage cleaned I can do that in exchange. My name is Pavel my number is 415 676 8335. my email is [email protected]

the bike is not rideable only because I tried to start it too many times the battery is drained. If anyone has the time please leave your number or your email, I can get the bike to you if you cant tow it, uh, I'd really like to be able to ride by wednesday :D

Thanks guys so much, I'd rather come to soeone on the board than a shop. I think I trust you guys a lot more.

jbswear, i hear you. however, this will be a first for me. optimally, i'd like to tune it w/ someone to learn that way. also i need a front tire replaced.

be well, everyone. thanks.

If you have a basic set of wrenches and can read, you can do ALMOST all that you listed by yourself. Trust me, it's easy.

The tire changing takes some special tools, like $20 worth of tire spoons and practice/supervision.

Syncing the carbs is expensive, unless you build a manometer yourself.

I just did my dirt bike tires last night. Because of the tube you have to use spoons. I HATE them. LOL It was compounded by the fact that I thought metal spikes would be cool for the ice (they were).

This would be for my KTM 990...pirelli scorpions, not what you would call a dirt tire persay because they need to be balanced and all that good stuff.

Nah...i'd pay the 30 bucks just to watch you sweat about scratching my pretty rims. On my KLX i don't give a crap...but this bike is minty fresh.
I wouldn't touch a spoked wheel for $30. Let some other sap deal with that. I did my own and considered paying someone else! LOL. I watched a few youtube videos about it. "If it is difficult you are doing it wrong". F you! LOL

Nah it really isn't that bad, i just want to be able to scream at someone else if it gets EFFed up.

Next time i change my tire i'll show you. I have one particular iron that makes things VERY easy and two regular irons for leverage.

That was my big mistake. I only had 2 irons. I am pretty sure with a 3rd it would have been very easy. The 2 irons I had were just the plain Motionpros. What special do you have?
