today I got a quote for my 2006 KX85 for a complete top end rebuild. They told me $100 for parts, 3 hours to do it @ $150 per hour..........does this sound right or can I get it done cheaper? Thank you.....I hope I put this in the right space...thanks :coocoo:

Im 23 miles west of Fort Wayne and 90 miles north of Indy...........I didnt think I was allowed to put business names on here......anyways...I just thought it sounded high but wanted to know what you guys thought......maybe I need to look around and get prices....or better yet.....learn myself.

I am not supposed to put business names????? No spamming your sponsors,but telling who is a rip off is another story! I do not remember the names of the shops east of you,but I do know they favor the smaller bikes and racers. Lunch at Portllo's and a manual,I will show you how!

You're convinced these guys are trying to screw you over and now you are going to trust them to port a cylinder?
