South Arkansas Kawasaki Dealers

Bough a 08 450f a few months back, I would like to take it in to get the valves adjusted a few other things done. However my search for a good dealer is under way can anyone recommend a kawasaki dealer?

If'n I remember right, South AR stretches from Texas to Mississippi..you willing to take it to either side of the state or do you want to narrow it down to a more specific area?

Willing to go to Little Rock? Surely there is one up there..but that is more central AR, on the northern edge of southern..

Sorry about that I live an hour north of Texarkana, I travel frequently down I-49 for work so anywhere south of Texarkana would be great. Good mechanics are becoming harder and harder to find! Shreveport is a better option than little rock.

If Paris Texas is not to far, I've had good luck with the Kawasaki Shop there.

Get the service manual and do it yourself. Probably do a better job and mucho cheaper. Or go to the Kaw website and find all dealers anywhere near you. I still say diy.

+1. For all the time and hassle of taking it to a dealer, you could educate yourself with a little OTJ training and save money in the process. Take a look below, if this is beyond your comfort zone then a dealer is for you.

Yeah, I live IN Texarkana, and from my very limited experience with the dealer here, I'd take mine elsewhere if I couldn't do it myself. Unless you enjoy over-paying for stuff, that is.

BTW, where are you north of here?
