The owner of Motorcycle Warehouse on 82nd is a KLR fan, and they have a service shop. No personal experience with them, but reviews online look good. There's always the "stealership" as well. You'll pay more at Beaverton Bob's, but they'll do the job and stand behind the work.
I do my own valves. Lots of video's and instructions on line (see Marknet). Also a hint, the BMW K bikes use the same size shims and have a good selection in stock at BMW Tigard.
Good luck...oh and get used to the milk crate jokes, it's usually the most "Creative" the KLR haters get.
