Agent Smith took great pics, and took even better care of me. I'm amazed by how clean and great my head turned out. Thought I should share some of the pics. It will be pretty obvious which pics are before, and which are after. He took a lot more pics, over 33, and his work looks top notch, I can't believe how clean and great the parts turned out. I showed the pics to my 64 year old friend who's ridden forever, (and can still make a young man cry doing a hardcore trail ride) and he said that me sending it off to AS was a great move. He had originally told me to take it to a local guy, but aside from having the bike down for only a few more days, this was by far the best way to go. They're reat to deal with, do great work, and are priced very very fair. Even with shipping it will not cost much more than the local guy, who by the way has not done a CRF head before. Chalk in the fact that AS is always ready to help with good sound advice and it's just a no brainer. I think people like this are what make TT so great. I hope to have the bike back together by next weekend, I need to get a few rides in and break it in. Next month I'll be riding in my first ever harescramble, where I expect to win last place. Oh, did I mention that AS did a mild port and polish for me? How's that for service? Here's the real funny part to me. I asked my local dealer what doing intakes would run. He was very honest and told me if I brought him the part, he'd send it out to a small engine machine shop , so he was actually the middle man. The dealer does not have the facilities and or expertiese to do the work and instead they send the parts to a small engine repair shop! Pretty amazing huh? He also told me while they'd clean up the valves, it would not be bead blasted so I'm sure it would look nowhere near this good. As my friend told me when he saw these pics, "This guy went above and beyond what a good job should be. You scored." Shameless plug time: If anyone here is thinking it's valve time, don't hesitate to contact Agent Smith. You'll get great service, and they are great people who do great work at a more than reasonable cost. It's really an easy process too. Simply send them your head, valves, and other parts to be replaced, along with a return label for the box, and a check for the work to be done. Turnaround is very quick. They got my head on Thursday and on Friday it was done. You can't beat that.
