KTM service shop in Boise?

So I'm in the middle of a big ride on my 990 Adventure... I left Colorado a few days ago and I'm in Kalispell, Montana now and my rear sprocket doesn't look like it's going to make it back to CO, despite being in good shape when I left and getting lubed every morning.

I'm hoping I can find a shop in Boise that would stock a new chain and sprockets for a 990, but don't know where to look. There are more than a dozen shops in Boise, just looking for suggestions on the best places to start.

If I have to, I can have RMATV ship parts to a friends house... but want to try finding them in stock first. Any helpful suggestions?

I have zero experience with these guys but they are a KTM shop so I would expect them to have tons of parts

I recently used the services of big sky motor sports on a long trip. It is a good sized shop that mainly seemed to cater to beemers in the service department, but I did see a few ktms floating around. They were pretty helpful and efficient, though they did charge an arm and a leg.

Carl's Cycles in Boise has me taken care of, they seem like good help... thanks for the suggestion! They had to order the chain but it will be there by Friday. I'm in Missoula now, the rear sprocket is holding up well enough but the chain is getting looser each day. I should be able to limp it in...

I'm glad Carl's was able to help, now let's detune that motor so less stress is put on the chain and sprockets. Start by removing one spark plug ;)
