Solid Dealer/Mechanic in Twin Cities, MN
Have had good luck with HondaHouse in St Cloud area but drive is over 90 minutes. NOT happy with Hitching Post in Hopkins. LArson Cycle in Cambridge is backed up 4 weeks.
Would love to find a solid mechanic to work on my 2003 650 ( now with BBK And CAM) shortly after I installed the BBK I started hearing a slight ticking noise from the front area of the engine on cold startup, then it progressively got a little worse over the winter and now the noise is more pronounced and doesn't go away once it is warmed up.
I am guessing ( given the 4K miles or so on it ) from what I have been reading it may in fact be the Cam chain, guide, adjuster etc and hopefully NOT a lower rod bearing or piston slap.
Would love to find someone in the SW metro or just south metro. Any suggestions are appreciated, I just want an Honest Mechanic who is good and fast !
