Question Engine balancing? Re: R100GS

Who balances engines? I don't mean "who has it done?" I mean, who can I go to to get it done?

Anybody near Chicago?

Catweasel, you were right about suggesting a Poll. That's the way I should have posed this, I was wrong. You were wrong suggesting that I'd get "terse" responses--- anything but is what I got.

I need to back up.

What is a "balanced engine"?
Sounds to me like you tear it down to parts, balance the parts on some sort of special mill, and then reassemble everything. Am I close?
