Suzuki Service in SW Ont

I bought a 2014 DL1000 recently at Newmarket Suzuki (Ya I know,Iknow)
Didnt know about their reputation when I bought it at the bike show.I'm sure I dont want to take it there for its first service.Any comments on service at St Onge in Barrie ?Or suggestions on suzuki dealers?
It will only be there once then I will be doing my own service.

No experience with either dealer, but if you bought from Newmarket, i'd take it there...

Obviously being in Wiarton you are looking at a trip to get it done either way so why not think about heading south to London or similar?

I have dealt with Inglis Cycle here, they are good guys.

Yeah I realize I'll be riding to any dealer
I just cant say as I have heard or read ANY positive comments about Newmarket service.
I may just buy my Suzuki filters from the atv dealer in Chesley and do it all myself right from the get go, like every other Strom I have owned...
None of those were new though

I fully understand that.

Now I have to tell you about my Yamaha FJR. I bought it from Hully Gully. They have never seen it back there. Excellent out the door price. It went to Inglis for it's first service. Other than giving me heck for changing the oil (bought the bike in the fall put on 500kms and put it away for the winter. I don't like old oil sitting in the bike over the winter I changed the oil myself) I couldn't tell if they did anything.
Donald has done all my maintenance since then. It now has 259,000kms on it.
I believe it is worth just giving him a call and ask him any question about warranty.

Now if you are going to head to London and get the first service done at, say Inglis, do stop in on the way back and see Platinum Powersports shop. It's on the way.

Hell if you give me a heads up I ride with you down to London and show you where the shop is on the way back.

I bought my V Strom at the bike show from Suzuki of Newmarket as well. As far as I have been able to find out it does not have to go back to keep the warranty.

I will likely do the 1000 KM oil change myself or at most take it to a local shop . Newmarket quoted me $350 for a first service

Well,Im going to hit 1000 km next week and probably wont be able to get it in that quick anywhere so I think I will just do the first service myself.I can do a $350 oil change myself lol.That will buy me an FSM and some cash toward the sds tool when I want to do a throttle body sync...
