Anyone have recommendations for a shop to do a full 883 => 1212 conversion? Just starting to do some ground work, as I'm pretty sure I just blew the head gasket on the bike I picked up 3 weeks ago. Most likely going with an NRHS kit. Anyways, any recs and opinions are welcome, especially personal experience. I'm not rolling in cash (welcome to the club right?) so I'm trying to stay away from dealerships if at all possible.


TIA guys :banadanc



ALSO, if there are any local guys who KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING AND CAN BE VOUCHED FOR, maybe we can work out a side deal.

I guess most of us do our own work. I don't even know where to start looking for a decent indy around here.

Phillober did his own conversion and has a great thread about it. If you have the time, a decent set of tools, and some mechanical aptitude I don't see any reason you can't accomplish this yourself.
