Can anyone recomend a mechanic in Las Vegas area?

I can do much of the maintenance on my bike but don't have time or energy to tackle more involved repairs. I may need the stator replaced so would like to find someone reliable and hopefully inexpensive (I'm financially challenged) that can do it and maybe do the tuxedo mod too. I took my last bike to Flat-Out Cycle and ATV and was treated great but they're gone now.

Sadly I don't know Vegas, but maybe there's a Vulcan owner on here that'd do it for some cash and beer.

Thanks for all the options. I'll try to get it done locally first, but, the trip to Phoenix sounds interesting, but, I think it's a little more than 2.5 hours each way. If I can't get it done here then the Phoenix trip is a possibility. I have a tow bar to pull the bike behind my Durango. What kind of beer?
