BMW F650GS problems in Nicaragua-need new clutch

The clutch is out on my 2010 F650GS. I am in Managua, Nicaragua. Does anybody know somebody that can repair it? I am at the BMW shop, they only do cars. Thanks

If you are sure you just need the plates, it is an easy job but you or your mechanic must pay attention to certain details or you will be countless hours trying to figure things out.
Changing the plates is easy, but if you have not done it before or watched it done, get a helper and pay close attention to the order of the plates and make sure you get the cover back on correctly.

You should PM Hubb member Salcar. He is your best bet for finding a reputable mechanic in Manaugua. He used to live in Manaugua and had a 2008 BMW F650gs.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
