A&S is awesome. In April, while riding through CA, I had a radiator hose blow on my 94 K1100RS. Limped to a biddy's place in Sacramento. Called A&S first thing the next morning and they physically verified that they had the correct hose in stock before I went up there to get it. Guy at the parts counter was good.
