Dyno's near NW Iowa?

I'm aware I might not get the responses needed but I thought I'd ask anyways. I'm having trouble finding dyno's around here to get my bike tuned one. There is one less than an hour away at a college but they want me to leave my bike there, I'm not leaving my bike at a college. The Harley shops have the 250i which is nice...but they say that it's setup for a HD's wheelbase and won't accept the short wheelbase of a crotch rocket. Talked to a guy that has one in Blackhawk, SD but that's a long damn ways away. Now I'm looking for shops near Omaha, Des Moines, and the Twin Cities in MN...

I guess I'm kind of running out of options and having no luck finding one. Any help is awesome, thanks guys.

None in Omaha that I'd trust! As soon as the weather breaks, I'm taking my 10r to http://www.smitherscustoms.com I've heard nothing but good things about them.

I'm going to keep looking but I don't think I'll find much, make some more phone calls

Thanks for the quick reply.

There's a harley shop here in Omaha with a "state of the art" set up, but there's no way I'm taking my bike to a v-twin cruiser dealer for tuning. Then there's Cliffords cycle but, um yeah, I'm gonna have to pass on them. Word of mouth advertising is a bitch for those guys.

Yeah, Omaha is less than 2 hours from here but if you're saying there aren't any good tuners.

Haha...it's kind of funny because the first Harley shop I called in Sioux City said they don't "do those kinds of bikes". I later half had the notion to call back and ask what was up with that, except when I called the other shop they told me exactly why their dyno's won't work with "those bikes".

How about Clifford Cycles or D & J Motorsports. Either of you two heard of them, good/bad?
