Default Kawasaki brute force 750-I, engine needing rebuilt

So my son was ragging on my quad, snapped off and intake valve ( wiping out the head, piston, cylinder) ! I took it to Rinebolt sales and service in Reese Michigan, got screw over by them ! There trouble shoot quote $300, That $300 would goto any major repairs( I suggested that they do a cylinder compression test, and Was told ok, 2.5 wks later still nothing, I called them at three weeks and was told that they removed the carbs and has them sitting in the hot tank because they couldn't get my quad running to do a compression ( plus I had to talk to the mechanic if I want to know why there working on the carbs, however he was never available to take my call or at lunch, out of the building etc so when I called again I was told they have so much time into " that its so un-believable and that its going to cost $1,800 to rebuild the front cylinder, I asked what about the rear cylinder and was told that there not performing any repairs to it! I asked could you do a Visual inspection by removing the head and inspect the head, valves, piston, etc. And was told yes but for another $800 ! So while I was there they asked if I'd thought about just selling it , ok , what it worth $800 but we need the snowplow mount & blade (brand new late last year) warn 3,500 winch, dual AMG battery's, warn hd plow mount and 60 in blade, power tilt! I said it's worth $800 the way it sits with all the extras, right , plus you want the extras and it's worth $800 he said yup minus the $500 for the inspection so I'd walk away with $300 in my pocket, I said I'd get more by parting it out the way it sits! Wait $500 for what? Well mr.brown you just don't know how much time we have into trouble shooting you quad, I said our agreement was for a $300 inspection troubleshooting nothing more! At this point I said screw it I have brand new rebuilt carbs but and engine that fu#cking junk! I asked why would the carbs have anything to do with a compression test? Owner) need to talk to the mechanic or let's talk to the mechanic he's only work a 1/2 day today! So I paid them up, Rinebolt said we will just hold onto your quad until you have the money, I said No I have my trailer and I'll just take it now!
So he wright up A quote $2300 to rebuild the front cylinder and inspect the rear!

So my question for all of you who in the area (60 miles) around the saginaw area does rebuild Kawasaki engines, offers good warrantee and doesn't try to screw there customers over?

Hope I posted this in the correct spot!

How mechanically inclined are you with small engines? rebuilding the motor is a time consuming task but with some mechanical ability it is not that hard to do. do you have a shop/repair manual? if you don't I might be able to email you a copy of mine. what year is it? I have a 2005. give me a call 231-690-6164. I will also shoot you a PM.
