Time for tune-up? Advice, please.
So at ~6300 miles ('07 650), I seem to be developing a bit of an overall vibration running through the bike in all the gears and traveling speeds (city and highway). And although it seems to start, run, and shut down just fine, I'm wondering if it might not be a bad idea to hand it over to a skilled wrench for a good dose of TLC. Throttle position sensor, throttle body balance, maybe the valves, etc.
(I was going to add that in the past I thought it was also offering a bit more pep in its step, but I did install the 16t sprocket first thing this spring before hitting the road.)
Heresy, you say, to use a shop? Well, I'd do it myself if it weren't for two important details. 1- I have no necessary equipment to tackle such a job. 2- I have none of the requisite skills to tackle such a job.
I don't know if I'm giving enough of the right info for everyone here to give me some sage advice, but I'd sure appreciate your thoughts, wisdom, and experience none-the-less!
I'd also like to hear of the Suzuki shops/mechanics in the Mpls/ St. Paul, MN area that would be recommended, or not recommended. If you prefer to keep that info non-public, please send me a private message. I'm just north of downtown Mpls, Hitching Post Fridley and Heinen's are my two closest shops.
