Hi I would like to help you.
A little about me,
I'm retired fdny NYC firefighter. I did 2 years of nypd (early 90s) and the remaining years at fdny until I hit my 20 years I took my pension and moved to Daytona to pursue my dream of making bikes with a lot of power. Weather it be building lower compression forced induction engines, cam degree, or dyno tuning. I purchased my first bike from the junkyard in 1990 (when I was 16 or 17 I forget what year that was) it was a wrecked 1988 Honda hurricane cbr 1000r. I spent 2 years and all the money I made working at waldbaums supermarket in Brooklyn ny as a kid. it was then when I discovered why God put me here. Over the years I've restored more bikes then I can remember and parted out the ones that I felt someone could get hurt on even if I restored it perfectly. If I felt it wasn't safe then it want to parts. Unfortunately my dad passed when I was 9 and my mother passed with I was 16 and my sister couldn't afford to send me to Florida to become a motorcycle tech when I graduated high school so I went to work. I did my 20 (retired a few years ago) and finally graduated from wyotech college. With a diploma in Asian concentration Suzuki Honda Yamaha and Kawasaki.
Currently I hold:
Motorcycle technology diploma from wyotech
Wyotech eagle tech award
Suzuki service pro Bronze tech certification (lifetime access to the service).
Suzuki service pro hall of fame induction
Dyno jet dyno tuning certificate
I interned at Lee's word shop in south Daytona and was mentored by Lee Florin who is a legendary master of pulling lost hp out of bikes. Life was good until exposure to asbestos and all that other s#it at the wtc on 911 makes it nearly impossible to maintain any type of employment or even breathe easy anymore.
The reason why I posted this was not to throw my training and accomplishments in anyone's face because there are well more qualified men and women up here that can run circles around my skills. I would just like to help out this community. If you have a question maybe message me. If you're in the Daytona area maybe I can take a look at it. I'm not soliciting anyone here. Not asking for any money. I just want to help you guys and girls get the most out of your bikes. I was known for being a master at electrical and diagnostics. But my love is building hp.
My credentials are available upon request.
I'm sorry for the long story about my hardship growing up. It's therapeutic for me to speak about it.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day
Btw for a hand full of y'all who know me from back in the day I still own my Brooklyn house so sometimes you may see me selling a bike or bike parts out of Ny. I still go back and forth to sell off parts now and then. So if you see me list a part in ny it's not a scam or anything. I have a lot of bike parts still in ny.
But like I said. If anyone needs any technical help or you need me to look at a bike that you are buying sight unseen as long as I don't have to travel too far from the 32114 zip code. Just shoot me a message and I'll do my best to help anybody here.
