    Strange. I just did a full rebuild on my 2stroke and needed several orders to end up with everything I needed as the job progressed. Never more than three days. I have seen no change in service in over twenty years, still my first choice.

    Plus - He provides an incredible resource of knowledge with his Youtube videos
    Plus - He's an actual rider and know what he's talking about
    Plus - He and his staff are super responsive
    Plus - He stock a lot of parts which many other places do not, that tailor to KTM and Husky riders
    Minus - He comes off as arrogant and condescending to those less knowledgeable and can oversell certain items, (though doing it while sharing knowledge with those same riders).
    I say the plusses far outweigh the minuses. We all have our quirks and idiosyncrasies, right? I would rather have a super knowledgeable vendor that's rough around the edges than a smooth talking ignorant one.
    Also, like the OP, since I'm in Colorado Springs, I can't tell you the number of times I have encountered that the local dealers fail to carry common KTM/Husky parts in stock, but I can count on Slavens to have them. This alone is huge to those of us that are local.
