Welcome to the forums!

I'm not in your area, but I'm sure the people here could help out! I would first check the maintenance and repair section for an overview on the carbs. The carbs are the heart and soul of these bikes. They're also pretty easy once you get a grasp of what's inside it.

As for the valve shims, doing the adjustment is also pretty straight forward. Just need a good feeler gauge and a few wrenches.

I recommend picking up a Clymer manual for the bike. I keep one with Roxy as a sort of 'bible' on fixing the XS11.

Good luck finding someone in your area! I'm sure there's someone on here nearby.
