Chicago Service Recommendations

Time for that 600 mile service on the new bird. The two Zook dealers near me have hit or miss reputations as far as service (do ask which ones yet...this is not MY opinion - I dont have one - and I would rather have a jury having hear nothing about the defendants.)

So I am sending up a flag to Chicago-area for recommendations on shop to try. I purchased the bike new from a dealer 150 miles away and would like to fine one a touch closer. Thanks in advance.

I've read a recommendation for but have not used them. I do all my own work.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at

Personally I would recommend doing it yourself. The service guide is online, and its pretty easy to do with minimal tools. Oilchange, check all bolts, fluids, adjust chain, and clutch.

Here's a recent thread on advrider about this exact topic. Where are you located, and how far are you willing to travel?
