Should have drove the new vette then might have gotten better treatment, went elsewhere for purchase.

I felt the same way at Motoworld (where I buy parts all the time). 

Went to Southbay. 2 thumps up. 

See Chewy.

back to veys where I bought my AT, sometimes saving a few bucks isn't worth (not that they were cheaper) being treated like another number.

There's always NCY up in San Marcos for KTM.  The guys there treat me well at the parts counter, and the sales guys aren't bad either.  Friendly crew.

 All vehicle salespersons are a different form of human being (they kiss your ### depending on how much money you spend) so I guess it really doesn't matter! all you can do is find the place that you are comfortable with,  but remember they are still salespeople.

I know I'm a little late to this party but I bought my KTM from them and had a very fair experience. They were the most willing to work with me that I found... well them and Chaparral but I didn't want to drive all the way up there.

You might want to be a bit cautious with the service department at Poway PS.  I had them change the tires on the wheels for my 1290 super adventure because it was on my way to/from work .  They ended up breaking the tire pressure sensor on the front wheel which they replaced on their dime.  When I went to pick them up the front tire was flat.  Ended up the rubber sealing band (that seals the spokes because of the tubeless tires) was also damaged and it took an extra couple of days to get that replaced again on their dime.  I dropped them off on Monday and they were not done until Friday.  Also they said I had to bring the bike in to program the new tire pressure sender.  When I got there on Saturday I realized the bike had already paired itself to the sensor.  I know it cost them more to replace the parts they damaged than I paid them for the tire change.  In the end it all worked out but was a hassle and took longer than it should and makes wonder about the mechanics...

No problem on my trip to Tombstone and back last weekend so all is well.

Hey CVRick, I decided to have a leak down check since I am running at 367 hours with 9845 miles on original components. Found 100% valve leak through the rings. Loosened the valves and the leak dropped to 38% through the rings. Knew I needed a top end, so I decided to have the bottom end opened to fix the slight play found in the counter shaft. RFS engines seem to work on the counter shaft (Play) around 10K miles. Note: It's only a hundred dollars more to get a "full crank assembly" verses just buying the crank and bearings with labor included. Due to the high hours I wanted a thorough engine rebuild.
