R&D Performance does it the Wright way


There is a new business in town and owner Bob Wright offers a unique service there.
At R&D Performance, Wright specializes in high performance Harley Davidson Motorcycles.
Located across from the Maple Lake Fire Department at 115 Division Street West, Wright is skilled in cylinder head porting, cylinder boring, big bore kits, exhaust installations and throttle body installations, among other things.
Harley enthusiasts from all over the country – from as far away as Alaska – bring their machines to Wright to get them performing at their highest potential.
“A lot of people claim to do what I do, but don’t,” he said.
Wright has been in the business for more than 20 years. For the majority of that time he ran his business out of Watertown. Before that he worked at a couple Harley Davidson dealerships, including one in Minneapolis, he said. He decided to move R&D Performance to Maple Lake this spring to be closer to his home near Lake Maria.
As the owner, and only mechanic, Wright can guarantee the job will be done right. He has been known to build custom-made motorcycles and has even constructed a Harley or two for celebrities, but he will also take time to do general service on his customers’ Harleys if that is what they are looking for.
While he doesn’t sell motorcycles, he does sell Harley Davidson parts. He also sells parts for ATVs and snowmobiles.
R&D Performance is open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.. Call 320-963-6850 for an appointment.
