Cool NEW-ish Dealership in Elgin

Hey guys, I work in the parts department at Kane County Motorsports (formerly Aero PA). We are fairly new, at least a new location. We have a great location and great building, just running a bit low on customers as of yet. Not too many people know our new location. In an effort to try to get known and get some heads through the door I thought I would offer 10% off parts and accessories if you mention this forum.

We are a Suzuki, KTM, Polaris, Can-Am, Ski-Doo, Sea-Doo, and Q-link dealership.

Hope to see some of you guys stopping by and saving you at least a lil bit of money.

Thanks

At least the are offering some sort of return. May not be much but it is more than some of the other have offered.

And it is an up-front and honist post. I have viewed no trickery and no F*** Y**'s as fo yet.

I'll have to stop in a take a look around.

+1. Looks like a legit contribution. You may be a little hasty with the Ban Stick Pete.

Gotta give everyone a chance! I hope to look around the shop this winter. I need some gloves and maybe a new lid!

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

Aero PA ( Martin ) was a fox valley institution.
OTOH, some say he should have been institutionalized .....

I stopped by the new shop out in South Elgin ..... nice.


But hey..... why have all the SportBikes crammed in the side room ?




Good luck to you in the new business...
It's good to see someone carry on from the old Aero PA days.

My sentiments exactly.

I'm still trying to find time to visit your new shop location.

Best of luck.

Wow, lots of responses. Like stated before we are on Mclean just south of 20. It is 920 S Mclean Blvd.

We do not have the ability to dyno tune unfortunately. But I don't have a problem getting parts for Yamahas and Kaws. Our selection of gear is limited to Rocket and Scorpion in stock but I can order just about anything needed.

The sportbikes are crammed into the side showroom because zylstra had a certain floor layout that is very limiting and we are just trying to keep it looking good and not cluttered. That side showroom is a bit cluttered though.

Hopefully I answered everyones question, if not, throw it back up here......and yes, I do plan on being an active member.

clutch cover and gasket
service manual (hopefully kawasaki's brand [ie..not haynes or other off-brand]) I'd like to have it model/year specific if possible.

bike is a 93 zx600d4

If he were selling dish washers that might be spam.

If it's about selling bikes or service and talking about bikes in general .Isn't that why we are all here ?

There have been alot of shit topics on here that have nothing to do with bikes and even offend some people .

I'll take bike related Spam any day.

Gus
We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

hi Doug and welcome to CLSB.


thanks for offering our members a discount to your dealership. i personally appreciate that.

also can you do me a mutual favor, can you speak to your General Manager and let them know your advertising there services on our website as i am sure they will REALLY appreciate that from a business stand point of free advertising to over 6000 members and over 1 million views a month.

2nd, can you put me in touch with the GM so i can ask about carrying our Moto Angels 2009 Calendar which helps fallen riders family's so we can mutually help one another for a higher cause.

thank you.

Ken
