another option, esp. for the thumper KTM's is ESP suspension in La Crescenta. they specialize in suspension work (as the name implies) but also do regular service, valve adjustments, etc. on most major dirtbike brands. great folks and prices.

looks like Eric's motorcycles went out of business in Jan. 2013. does anybody know where the mechanic Bret ended up after Eric shut down?

I've built many high performance vehicles, from the inside out. However, I don't do anything on my bike, not even Maintnace.

The only guy I trust with my bike is Chris Blais. It's a haul from you, but when do you get a chance to meet the highest finishing American ever in the Dukar?
