Throttle body help-Sacramento

Is there anyone near Sacramento that can help with a throttle body adjustment On a '08 Vee?

Are you sure they need adjustment? The job is much more common on the pre-07 stroms. For the '07 & later, this $75 motionpro tool is necessary (or highly useful)

I am getting some backfire at low rpms and it is sounding a bit rough. I am going to pull the tank and inspect the k&n air filter and replace the gasket and look for any leaks to see if that solves the problem. I have 30k and it is probably time to look at the tb's
