Welcome. I can't help you with a mechanic though since the boys at Cogent Dynamics are in Fletcher, I'd probably ask them as they would know for sure. Alternatively, get a service manual and dig in; ask questions here and there are lots of youtube videos and other resources. The bike itself is pretty basic and if you are patient, have a decent tool set and can follow instructions there isn't much you can't do yourself.

Thanks Dave, Just ordered my Clymer repair manual. Also with it I ordered some oil/filter, air filter and new spark plug. Looking forward to learning and fixing what I can.
