Good shop for ATV engine work

I was thinking about sending out the work to a shop in Iowa, but would much rather support a local business and would rather be able to drive to the shop.
Does anybody know of a good shop for ATV engine work? It's pretty much just new valves, valve springs, and DID chain. I planned on doing it with a buddy, but I don't have the time to work on it anymore and it's just sat since late winter.
I don't want some hole in the wall shop that a buddy works at, I already have a decent amount of money into this engine and would like the rest of the work done right.

FWIW, it's a 2005 KFX 400 which is now 440.

Any other shops? I talked to Action, but they didn't want me to bring the quad in.
