A Little Of Our Story

We were simply born to fix motorcycles for a living

Cycledoctor started as a dream I had in 1995, when I wanted to branch out on my own and do what I loved to do, which was work on American Twins and Harley-Davidsons. When I opened up my shop, I was always grateful for every customer I had. To this day, I keep up that same level of customer service to make sure every person who comes to my shop stays a customer for life.

    Geoff took the time with me to figure out the best motor upgrade options for my riding style and budget. He was not the cheapest quote in town but worth every penny. My bike came out far beyond what I had expected and I would trust Geoff with anything else after how meticulous and honest they were about my rebuild. I have had a lot of Dynas over the years and Geoff takes the cake at performance expertise. Highly recommend Cycle Doctor for any HD tuning and other work.

    I was referred to Cycle Doctor by a friend and had been hearing about this so-called "Cycle Doctor" for some time now.  Well, Geoff deserves all the hype he's getting both here and by word of mouth. I purchased my 2011 Forty Eight a couple years ago from a previous owner, and in the last several months it has been giving me a lot of trouble. From the moment I brought my bike to Geoff he's been incredibly helpful, and honest.  Diagnosing the exact issue on my bike as been a little troublesome, at no lack of experience on his team's part, but due to it being intermittent.
    He's been upfront with realistic expectations, and has done everything in his power to avoid this becoming a costly expedition for me. His integrity as a motorcycle mechanic is priceless and as a female motorcyclist that doesn't want to find herself on the side of the road with a bike that wasn't worked on properly is to say the least....invaluable!  Geoff has stayed in touch with me every step of the way, even following up with me to see how the bike was reacting to the work done on it.  I believe Cycle Doctor truly cares about their work and their customers, so as long as I'm on two wheels Geoff's got a loyal customer who will happily keep his shop busy with as many referrals as I can send him.

    Great work and it was done on time!  How odd is that  😉
    Pricing is not the lowest and that is hard, but I trust them and I will use this shop again.  Nice guys, they actually answer questions AND the phone!  LOL

    Try them!

    1st time customer here.  Geoff and his team went above and beyond what i asked them to do.  They got my FXR up and running in no time!  I'll definitely be coming back.

    There aren't many places where I would bring my Harley. Cycle Doctor is one of the few on my list, and they are at the top of my list.

    Great service, decent prices and a relax and honest staff.
    Geoff and his team always take great care of my bike.

    Highly recommended!

    If you're looking for a Specialist in Harley Davidson tuning you should talk to Geoff at Cycle Doctor in Costa Mesa, CA. I had a Stage IV kit installed be Pomona Valley HD in my 2016 RG the HD catalog shows a dyno chart with this kit claiming you can expect 100 ft. Lbs of TQ and close to 95 HP.
    Colby from PVHD recommended I use the TTS Master Tuner and have Geoff ( owner ) at Cycle Doctor dial the bike in. I would give 15 stars if I could, After Cycle Doctor dialed the TTS Master tuner in , my RG charted 116 tq and 117 hp!! Thanks to Cycle Doctor I am now the proud owner of a 117 hp Beast!

    Geoff is by far the best tuner that I have ever had tune any of my bikes and I'm pretty anal about who works on my bike.

    I had toyed with the idea of rebuilding my 01 RK and after speaking with Geoff, I decide to purchased a 2011 RGC instead.  I had the dealer install a Thunderheader, bigger air cleaner and a TT Mastertuner per Geoff's suggestion.  My goal was to get the motor to run better and still be reliable, so this is where Geoff suggested that I start.

    When I rode down to LA on 2010 to work on a project I had him pick the bike up and tun it for me.  It came back with 84.6 HP and 101.3 TQ.  Decent numbers for a totally stock 103" motor. He was also able to eliminate that flat torque spot that Thundeheaders are notorious for and sounds like it has an aftermarket cam in it, not to mention that it runs great.

    Adding a Woods 777 cam next week and planning on taking the bike back to Geoff for the tune, because IMO he's that good and worth the trip from Nor Cal.  

    Sorry to hear others have had bad experiences with Cycle Doctor.

    Took a mostly stock 95ci carbed harley to him. Came out with 40% more horsepower, 10 degrees cooler running, and about 5 miles better MPG.

    Service is beyond exceptional! I drive 14 hours one way for his service.

    I found the Cycledoctor to be a fair and HONEST shop. I would say to any M/C owner give them a chance if you have any problems with your bike. Big Jim, Harley owner Whittier
