So I searched around and found Devol in Washington - look at their website. They charged half that amount and the bike performs great. Royce Devol does most of the suspension work and he even had a friend pickup my bike from portland and take it to their shop roundtrip for $50 bucks. They do good work.

Obviously none of my business and everyone is entitled to do whatever they want, but aren't you a bit tall to be lowering your bike? You are taller than I am, and I can't imagine lowering my bike and losing that suspension and clearance.

No offense at all. My bike was lowered by about two inches. Now I can sit on the bike and more than my tip toes touch but not completely flat footed. I mainly trail ride/hill climb and when things get scary I like to be able to put my feet down. If I MXed the bike at all, I probably would not have lowered it all. Maybe I have a short inseam compared to you. Maybe thats what happened when my parents dropped me on my head when I was a baby.

I also live in the Portland area. The problem with my O4 was that it was a little too tall for me and top heavy feeling. I am 5 ft 11 inches, 200 pounds. I talked to Beaverton Honda - Yamaha and they offered to lower and revalve the bike for around 1200 bucks.
Holy cow! How generous of Beaverton Honda. I am suprised there weren't freight and setup fees on top of that!
Why anyone goes to those guys is beyond me.

Ran me $500.00. I live in Vancouver Wa. I took my suspension to Pro Motion Suspensions in Vancouver Wa. His name is Dave Taxel. It's in the phone book. The Guy really knows his stuff.
