Recommend a shop for an older bike

A friend of mine here in Bremerton wants to take his 1979 XS 650 to be tuned. Somewhere within an hour of Kitsap. Anyone...?

I'm trying to work through the basics with him first. Two "new" carbs, but only one is running rich? Ugh...

Funny! Before I left for work today I was going to write and ask if it was a 'been sitting 10 years and needs carbs pulled and rebuilt' type of tune, or a basic 'actual' tune up...
I owned a '79 XS 650. Great to learn 'how to work on a bike' as they are about as basic as you can get. Not to mention most everything is easily accessible. Buy a set of carb sticks and have at it!
