Need a Kawasaki Mech Keys Area

I transfered to Key West 2 months ago. Had the intention of doing my own work and taking time off at the end of the summer for a long ride. As it does in the Navy, those plans fell through. So i have a week at the end of May to cram a ride in. Going about 1500 miles. I need my valves checked and probably adjusted. I dont have the time to do it before this ride. I have a 2013 Kawasaki KLR 650. Can anyone suggest a reliable mechanic in the Keys area?

How many miles on the bike? Are you having issue or just trying to follow a maintenance schedule?

How many miles are on the bike now?

I've bought several new motorcycles and every one wanted a valve inspection at 10k. You know how many got that? ZERO!

Tony and I were talking about this this weekend. He's done one in 67,000 miles. I'm going to check mine at 20,000. I'm at 13,4xx now.
