Let me start off by saying that I'm pretty much a noob at the chopper game. My 07 K9 is my first one and I just bought it last summer. My starter shaft snapped awhile back and through this forum I was pointed towards Curtis for repairs. Long story short, digging into it to remove the starter showed other problems....clutch basket was loose and then found that the imput shaft was bad and the bearings where going out in the transmission! Curtis never once complained or ignored my sometimes dumb questions and went out of his way to answer and help educate me! He returned calls after hours and on weekends when I needed help!! Both my starter and transmion are working perfectly after he rebuilt them for me! It's refreshing to find a business owner/operator who cares more about helping his customers than just selling parts!! Thank You!!
