    Hi All,

    I am on world tour of sorts and am looking for a recommended mechanic in the Phoenix area to get valves done. Also what is the reasonable cost. Just trying to figure out my best option is do it myself or if it is cheap enough to pay for it be done.

    Thanks,

    Craig

    All you need you will find at, ZEN MOTO. Dillon Dugan is owner and there is no better place to put you trust than with Dillon !!

    The man is honest to a fault, his prices are reasonable and he is one of the best KTM wrenches in Phoenix,as he owns a 950 adv.

    There will be others on here that will tell the same thing as Dillon has street credit as one of the best!!!:clap

    Heya Craig

    I won't tell anyone here you are an Ozzie so they will be good to you :rofl

    Dillon, he is the guy from Zen we bought all our Wolfman through and the screen, bars guard etc.

    Bloody good to deal with, gave us a great for buying the whole lot, I would not hesitate to go back there.

    KTMSER on here (Spencer) talks highly of him too and by all accounts Spencer is held in high regard amongst the troops.

    or 480 600 2978

    He rides one of cheap Adventures too :evil

    BTW your papers are here too :clap

    Cool thanks for all that - I will call them in the morning.

    Andi we will see you in a day or two - just spoke to your host, so will probably crash there once I know when we can get it done.

    I'll have to try to hide my accent! :rofl

    Picked the bike up today - all good and the price was right.

    Hats off to Dillion. I rang him yesterday morning and it was done by this afternoon. Excellent service and great guy. He had a big chuckle when Andi and I pulled up an F650 two-up.

    -4ºC when we arrived but was nice most of the way. Once Maya arrives you should take a quick run up to Flagstaff - beautiful with all the snow around.
