Dealer Info?

Hi,

We just moved to Spokane(new job). My 2002 DR650 needs to have the base gasket changed and I don't have the time or knowledge to do this. Any suggestions on a dealer I can take it to to get it fixed?

Thanks!!

Pete

I think there is only one Suzuki dealership left in Spokane is: http://www.spokanepowersports.com/

The last time I needed work on my DR200, a new clutch, I had it done at Westside Motorsport: http://www.westsideracing.com/ even though they are not a Suzuki dealership. They aren't cheap but what dealership is?

Maybe someone will chime in with an aftermarket shop here is Spokane or Cda that's good but I don't know of one.

Welcome to the neighborhood. Please consider coming out for one or both of these and meet some of us locals, we're pretty nice folks.

Thanks for the welcome LB. Right now I have been keeping some long hours at work but yes, I'd like to meet some of the locals. I went out to Seven Mile today and rode a little but not having a Discovery Pass, I was a little worried. I was thinking I was okay because I have a street legal bike but after a bit I got to thinking I better check things out a bit more.

Not having much luck finding a good wrench in and around the Spokane area. Sounds like I might be heading west-

Interesting, I hadn't even thought about the need for a Discover Pass out at 7-mile. I know you need ORV stickers out there but I totally forgot it's part of the State Park system. In the last few months I've figure out just how much I really do use state lands and it's one heck of a lot more than I thought.

Re: Discovery pass. I called the licensing office and spoke with their DP point of contact. he told me that if I have ORV tags I'm good-- no need for a DP on the bike... the truck, however, still needs one. Let's of confusion about this thing, but that much is clear to me. Andy

Try Mike's Powersports on Sprague, small owner run shop. I stay away from the local dealers myself.
