Engine builder and tuner in Mpls mn area.

Looking at possibly doing a 113 or 117 low compression build, reliability being the most important. hoping to find a shop that is honest and backs up there work in the Minneapolis Minnesota area. Thanks onetee.

Is Bob still doing engine work? I thought I heard he had moved ~30 miles north...

If so, he would be a great one in the area!

Yes, Bob/R&D Perf is still in Watertown building engines. He does a lot of work for one of my best friends, and he is top notch. He does not tune however.

I would also say Razorback Perf in WI as well. I have 2 very good friends that have taken bikes to him, and he is also top notch. He does most of the tuning for the HD dealers in his area. I will be taking my bike to him if my map from FM is a bit off.

Fuel Moto is very well recognized and you can't go wrong, but they are a bit farther.

I have also talked with and have heard good things about "Those Dyno Guys" in Zimmerman MN. I do not know anyone that has had work done there, nor have I have personal experience.

The HD dealer in Faribault is pretty good. Lot's of good recommendations for builds and tuning. I did have them tune my bike last fall before I decided to change tuners.

Good luck.
