It looks like I’m going to have to give in and take my 2005 vtx 1300 s to a shop. Anyone on here have experience with any shops in the St. Louis or south area?

I don’t mind paying a fair price to have it fixed. I just don’t want to pay a bunch and get it back with continuing problems.

I am running rich and my plugs blacken within 50 miles. I also have an electrical blinker issue.

Anyone have advice for a good shop? Or if any of you folks are really good at working on these bikes and would like to help me out, I’m willing to pay. I need someone who knows way more than me about working on them.

18 years my bike had never been to a shop for service. With the pandemic sitting for a while Id have the car rebuilt & rejeted the bike hasn't ran since.
Then I had a flash fire parked it.
Didn't hurt the bike but that told me I never take it back to an independent or dealer.
With the help of several on here. I've gotten everything put back together the carb I rebuilt I'll be firing it up this weekend.
De smogged it fixed everything the so-called mechanic did to it Don't believe Yelp reviews.
Just about anything you could need people on here respond to it with valid answers and diagrams with pictures.
