Gotta tell you guys about my night at Moto Sports. I e-mailed Doug (owner) early in the day asking if he could put on my new front tire and sprockets and chain. I had a business meeting about a block away from 4-5 pm, so I dropped off the KTM off at 3:45 and headed to the meeting. I got back a little after 5, and jumped in trying to help Doug. He let me work in his shop and with his tools, which is pretty cool. We found a few things that needed extra attention, such as a front caliper that was not quite right. He gave me some direction of what to do while he was busy working on other parts of the bike.

He was supposed to close at 7 pm. We finished at 8. Then, Doug and his wife spent time to make sure that my KTM was registered with KTM USA so that I could get notice of recalls and such. Doug probably spent the better part of three hours working on my bike.

He charged me less than $100 in labor.
