Best Seattle Area KTM Service Locations?

My new (to me) 2007 Katoom 990 Adventure is due its' next minor service. I was going to default to I-90 Motorsports as they're the first KTM dealer that sprung to mind that is on my commute, but does anyone have any feedback on them or any suggestions for better alternatives in the Seattle area? Thanks!

Have you thought about doing the service yourself. It's good to know how to work on these bikes if your going to own one. The bike is actually very easy to work on and you have a wealth of information on this forum.

Absolutely - The only thing is, I've been getting some FI error 72 malf (2nd throttle stepper motor) blinked at me on occasion that I thought might be getting a professional to look at. I'll be sure to pick up the service manual while I'm there for future reference.

Unless of course, someone has a copy of the PDF they'd be willing to share... :-)

It turns out that the stepper motor was fine, but the linkage to the butterfly valve was a little bent - the part was easily straightened out and the error is now gone. :-)

Glad you figured it Kavalier. And for what it's worth I have had pretty good luck in the past at cliffs in Bremerton if I need something.
