I bought a Dr.D hot start button a few weeks ago. First ride was great with this thing, just needed a tad bit of adjusting to get it just right. Second ride, I dropped the bike and broke the little red lever. Sucked bad cuz now I had to bump start it everytime I stalled or stopped.

Any way, I called Dr.D customer service this morning and found out that they are the greatest group of folks around. I called to see if it was even possible to get a replacement lever. Not only could I, but they only asked for my address and are sending it to me. No fee, no shipping, no nothing. They're sending me a new one for the low, low price of FREE. No questions, no concerns, no arguing, no problems!

As far as I'm concerned, if I need anything these folks produce or sell, I'm buyin it from them. That kind of customer service is the best thing that could happen to us riders.

I too have found that Doug and Gina are some of the finest people around. They are supporters of Thumper Talk and they are helping support the Garrett M Berg Memorial Race with goodies for the auction. I got a hot start for my '02 YZ 426F and it is the best accessory I have ever purchased. :) They have answered every email I sent them and take time to work out any problems you might have.

Customer service like that wins loyalty. It must have been his time in Canada that instilled that quality in him :)

As a follow up...

Three days ago I called about the replacement lever for my hot start. Today it showed up. To my surprize not only was this thing sent to me free of charge, but they included a whole handfull of stickers too. Dr. D has a life long customer from here on out. I couldn't possibly ask for more great service and attention to such a little request.


:) :D :D

This company is great. I bent and cracked my hot start lever also. Called up Dr.D to inquire about a replacement and three days later one shows up in my mailbox. No charge not even a shipping charge. I can’t remember the last time I received customer service like this. Now I will not only tout they’re products I will plug their customer service also. :)
