That name enough is enough to run. Those people at Chevrolet Deedi screwed up our car big time. [thumbsdown]
They are famous for screwing up every brand they dealt with. The new service center is Sarathy, should be better than Deedi on any scale (though they screwed up your disc).

Yeah, they have screwed up a few times before as well. After they changed my clutch, the clutch came off from the main bolt (twice) while I was riding the bike. But, at least they were courteous enough to come to my home and fix it the same day both times. And in the case of the disc, replaced with a new disc without any fuss once they got convinced that there was a bend. These are all the best that can be expected from a KTM considering what I have seen in KTM service centers from other states.

Indeed, great thread with great detail. Spotted a maroon Kinetic in the background and a black one [:D]
Hehe yes, they're my dad's pride and joy

Right said, the rear MC got stuck up and had to repair it. Replaced in Duke instead of rebuilding without knowing it could have been repaired.
I'll reply here since its more relevant - with my bad front MC, I just replaced it out right. For the rear, I was toying with rebuilding it and I had the same conundrum as you. Do I spend 37x rs for a rebuild kit or get a new one? I just opted to get a new one. Surprisingly, new rear MC, with the reservoir and hose was 650rs from the KTM showroom, as opposed to 750 for just the rear MC alone from bajaj. paying < 300 for all fresh parts was absolutely worth it IMO.

The new front MC from KTM was 30xx rs, with the adjustable brake lever itself costing 19xx rs. I should have bought the Duke 250 version which came with the regular levers and the same MC but it worked out well as I got the adjustable clutch lever too.

Right said, new one makes sense in both cases. 650 for the whole set was a steal. I didn't bother to check with KTM thinking it would cost more compared to Bajaj and ended up with Dominar MC. Found RE uses the same rear MC while checking GT's. RE costs more than Bajaj, exact figure unknown.
