i've noticed and have the same feeling about not trusting anyone with servicing my bike. Spectrum seemed pretty expensive. and i'm not liking what i'm reading about ECS. Does anyone have a shop they trust?
Evoluzione in Simi Valley seems to know their way around a Duc and they were also recommended to me by Doug Lofgren and Tom Manley. I haven't talked to Oceanside yet but every other shop I have talked to came up short....some were so bad I can't even comment.
I second Evoluzione in Simi. I've taken my bike for dyno and other minor work and Ken handled my bike as if it was his. They don't open on weekends but they will schedule you for drop-offs on Saturdays. Price seems to be reasonable compared to other dealerships.
Oceanside Ducati is usually able to accomodate a weekday appointment in a day or two, if you want Saturday book early in the week. They have 3 full-time techs and have cut the backlog way down. The train station is 2 blocks away. Have a dyno as well.
