Default Prop Balance for Rotax 912

Does anyone know where in Northern Illinois/Southern Wisconsin that I could take my RV-12 in to have the prop balanced. I am not interested in spending $1500 on a Dynavibe (although looks like it would work very well). I just adjusted/aligned the prop pitch and re-sync'ed the carbs. No huge vibration but would be nice to have the balance done once. One less thing to think about! My -12 is just coming up on 400 hrs and is a sweet running machine!

if anyone is charging more than a couple hundred move on. Most I've heard of around here is $300.

Default Balance near Denver

I, too, am looking to have my RV 7 balanced. Does anyone know of someone in the northern Colorado area who does this? My schedule is very flexible. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
Thanks, Jim

I had my -12 balanced down here in Indy if you want to come this far However, the prop was in perfect balance out of the box. No need for any weights.
