parts is parts

With my first non-Jap bike now fully broken in I can honestly say I'm in love with. What a superb machine. What I don't like so far is the time it takes to get any parts for it. EE skid plate 3 weeks, oil filters (small ones still on backorder now 4 weeks), tall seat and EXC tank looking at 4-6 weeks. Any of you guys know of a parts distributer with a little more inventory or clout with KTM. I currently doing business with one of the biggest in So Cal., but, am not real satisfied as you can imagine.



I've got the same problem with the local Honda/Yamaha shop...sometimes I think they take me for granted! ;-)

I've gotten to the point that if they don't have it "in stock" I check around with some of the other shops before I order.

Try Lori at KTM of Mojave

( ), I don't know if they have any of the stuff you're looking for....but they ship me stuff UPS all the time and they are easy to deal with...

Try holeshot, they boast most parts ship from stock, others in 2 days.


Pretend it's flat and give it the gas.

Give Mike Kruger at Cycle Zone KTM, in Topeka, KS. He's our 4 state area parts distributor for KTM. He has pretty decent prices and won't take an arm and a leg to ship either. If he has the stuff, he will ship it the same day.

I agree with KTM250rm about Mike. I always call him first for KTM parts. Then I run down this list on the rare occasion I have to go elsewhere. Pretty unusual for me to get all the way through the list and not be able to get the part I need.
