[VIC] KTM Service/mechanic eastern side

Hi fellow victorians.
Where would it be good to take the 640 adv to analise some sort of noise i have and if needed to repair it whilst i am at work?
I am looking at going to bolton but my schedule might state otherwise.
Any recommendations now that Jeffries gone belly up?

Thanks, i had a chat with Tim a few months back before they stopped working Sat. will see if he can but i know bolton can for sure take the bike on a very short notice.
Last time i chatted to tim it was 3-4 weeks notice.

I don't have a Kato myself but Boltons seem to be well respected amongst the Macedon ranges dirt bike mob out here.

Won't see me again: I phoned for an appointment to fit four tyres to four loose rims; was quoted a price and made the considerable hike there to arrive on tme (at their convenience), only to be told that the quoted price had gone up 50% in the meantime.
I have no time for arrogance or price-gouging - and told Max & Brian at BikeMart that Tim's attitude did not deserve their recommendations.
I had my tyres fitted around the corner at the PS-Yamaha place by Glenn - at short notice, on time, a perfect job from a polite, friendly & helpful professional. Now they've moved, I will happily travel the extra distance to deal with him again.
Tim might be good with KTMs - but he's a prick at customer service, IMHO.

Bike at Boltons.
Was a very tough ride as the bike began to spaz on the way there. Hope it rides back better
Vline on the other hand was eventless...

My experience is the other way round
I get good service @ Intune & the last tyre fit from Glen at Stevens was faaarking shithouse , gouged me black rims and shit house balance job .
But .... there was a young chap there and maybe it was his doing ?
Anyways won't be going back .
