KTM 1190 repair today in Amarillo?

Hey,
I am wondering if anyone can recommend a repair shop in Amarillo? I am on the road from Washington and headed to Flagstaff. I know what the problem is, and haVe the part. It is a fuel filter, but the pump has to come out of the tank, which means draining it.
I'm looking for a shop that will let me watch, or me tell them what to do, since I a familiar with the bike, and it is a 30 minutes to one hour kind of job.
I need to figure this out before 11 AM or I am going to bail on my trip and head to Denver where my brother in law lives.
The problem is intermittent. I think I could make it to Denver, I don't think I can make it the rest of my trip.

Thanks for any suggestions you have.

Sorry for the late reply. Maybe David Browns on I-27 could assist, they seem pretty friendly there.

They did it and were awesome about helping a traveler.
I didn't see this until now, but checked out their good reviews and called them.
The owner has a cool collection of old bikes he showed me while I waited. He has been in the business a long time.
Thanks for responding, and the bike ran great after the filter install.
