Can anybody recommend a good KTM guy in South Africa?

Can anybody recommend a good KTM guy in South Africa? I’ve no major issues with my 640, only maintenance and would like an experienced person to check her over as she’s had some hard kms south. I’ll be in J’Burg in a few days and I’ll be riding down to Cape Town afterwards.

Had a look on the tech part of the HUBB but more people view this forum….

Cheers!

Hey Duck,

Don't know how many KTM dealers there are in Cape Town, but a friend took his in for service to I believe this dealer. Same story as you,came down through Africa and wanted a full service. Pretty easy to find if it is the right place, visible on a main highway heading north out of the city.
