    Looking for mechanic in Iowa/Illinois/Midwest area

    Hello everyone...I have a 94 SL650 that I traded an Xbox 360 and a computer for a few weeks ago. It's in good shape and it runs, but I can tell already that the carburetors will likely need to be cleaned/rebuilt.

    I am no mechanic...you need a computer or web site fixed up, I am your man. Change a spark plug? Not so much.

    Anyone know of someone who can go through my ski and tune it up and rebuild the carbs (if needed) or at the very least give it a stamp of approval?

    I have spent many hours reading threads in this forum along with calls to every marina and boat shop I could find, and I am having a surprising amount of difficulty.

    I am willing to make a weekend out of it if I have to drive 10 hours I don't care, I just want to feel comfortable.

    I intend to buy an SLT750 or Virage at some point, but want to make sure this is a hobby/sport I actually will get into.

    Help? Please?

    Thanks

    Tell her you're going out to get some beer and you'll be right back.

    I actually LOLed on that one...more than likely she won't want to come, and a weekend away from town/wife/kids with a camper, jetski and a 12 pack does not sound all that shabby.

    I actually had a boss along time ago that said that, and was gone to Myrtle Beach for 3 days. Needless to say he didn't remain married very long.
