KLR parts and tyres in southern Costa Rica
While buying a coconut in a small town called San Vito
, I discovered there's a guy with two KLRs he's selling in parts. I was able to pick up a couple of rubber pieces for the tank (that the Kawasaki dealer in Managua somehow lost without telling me) and a replacement rear rack. All for $20. Score. :-)
The place is called Chimena, the fella's name is Lalo. Their telephone number is +506 8371 8995 and their email is email@example.com
Incidentally, this is the first place in central America that I've found 17x5.10 tyres. The only tyres I could find in Nicaragua or San Jose were 17x4.60. Goldenboy 244 17x5.10 are fairly readily available here in San Vito. I bought one from the rack in the Yamaha dealer in town. Apparently there's more bigger bikes in this part of Costa Rica so these tyres are more readily available.
Posting this for anyone searching for info in the future.
Love & joy - Callum
