whenfoxforks-ruled, i take it Greg must be good then? Just looking for a good dealer because lots of the un-seen dealers here seem to rip you off left and right.

The last 5 dirt bikes, 1 street bike and 1 utility quad I have had have come from Service. I am in Dallas, them in Indiana. I call Gregg or Rob and within a week I have a new bike delivered. Sure I have to put the front wheel on but then again I am saving a tremendous amount of money, even after shipping cost.

As of a couple years ago Service was the number one OEM parts distributer in the country. I can only assume they still are.

I live in SC and bought a CRF450 from them in 2003. It was easy to deal with and great service.

Now that they do Yamaha parts as well I will be buying from them exclusively for all my OEM needs.

Not sure what that means? I assume you didn't actually mean dealers on DRN?

Last 3 bikes from Service Honda...
Good people.

I currently have 3 Honda's in the trailer. Two I bought used and built up from bare frames all the parts (OEM & aftermarket) came from Service. The other bike came from Service gently used (in almost new condition) and the local rip-off shop couldn't (really WOULDN'T) even compete.

Service is the real deal! Real dealership in giant retail space with big shop and real people to sell you bikes, parts and make repairs not to mention build cool things like the CR500AF/AFX and the latest KX500AF creation.

Bad News

2 Strokes For Life......

I have some bad news for you.....I actually looked at purchasing an 08 CRF450R from Service Honda and having it shipped up to Alberta. I emailed them to get some info on making the transaction, the response I received was, and I quote.......

"We can only ship the special Service Honda model like the 500AF and KX500AF. regular production models must be purchased in person."

Needless to say I was fairly bummed out considering the price they sell for. I even went so far as to check the driving distance to and from where I live to their shop. 4000+ kms :( In the end it's a no go for me.
