Kens Motorcycle Tires

Posted on: 8/4/2011

Prices good, work is great.

I had doubts, but had a couple of word of good mouth referrals and got a tire installed by Ken. I've learned a lot more about balancing tires since getting the first one installed at Ken's, mostly thanks to a car with expensive wide tires and my other bike, which is old and kinda custom. In retrospect, I can say that Ken knows how to balance tires, without mistakes that I've seen or heard of. I've had no problems with the tires Ken installed, and I've had problems with tires he did not. As important as tires are on a bike, I'm not taking mine anywhere else anymore. As for prices, their price on my rear tires were very competitive but for some reason the fronts seemed high. I'm sure that's just my bike's tires, though. They're not a common model.

Quality Gutter & Pressure Cleaning

Posted on: 2/10/2010

Not to be trusted. Rip off.

This guy quoted me a price per foot, based on my (somewhat high, I thought) estimate of footage. My estimate was high, though I did nto have time to measure. He then billed me at a higher rate, and for a larger number of feet of gutter than my house has, according to my after-the-fact measurements. And the difference was not small. My house is large, but nearly square, so the gutters are not that big. I ended up[ spending over $200 for a job that should have cost under $100. Avoid this scammer. If you must use him, get an estimate in writing, and hold him to it. You'll need to. In addition, the cleaning job he did was not great. Apart from the scattered gunk all over the deck, which I expected him to spray off, the gutters still had a lot of mess when I had them replaced shortly thereafter. I had initially asked this guy to just look, for an agreed upon fee of $100, and clean if necessary. he just cleaned and didn't look. The gutters desperately needed repair, and he said nothing. I would use anyone but this guy. The ONLY thing I'll say in his favor is that I asked him if he could get it done quickly and he did.
