Would think there would be someone in Mex City who would do it, have you contacted Gary Dymond (v helpful HU member) there? If not, I got my rear Ohlins shock fitted with a new spring in Guatelama City, think it was one of the BMW dealerships, sorry can't remember which one.

Try contacting their dealers as a start:
