Workshop in San Jose

Hi mate, if this is any helpful, you can try this number for a workshop in San Jose (Costa Rica) 379 6316 , I don`t remember the country code if you are abroad. Ask for Colorado, he is the owner, I donĀ“t remember his name but he likes being called like that. Colorado speaks fluent english and can help you with information. He took me to the suppliers shop for some spares last year, he was happy to help travellers.

Marco.

Here's an email address for the GM of Motosuki, S.J., CR. It's the largest Suzuki shop in CR.

I was laid up for 5 weeks there waiting for parts / repair.

Don't mention my name!

Hey folks, cheers for the info there, but alas, none of them stock what I need, which is mainly just a chain & sprocket for the V-Strom. I high-tailed it down to Panama City where I am now, and the main Suzuki dealer here (that stocks V-Stroms so their web-site says), does not have a basic chain and sprocket for me either. No biggy as I'm shipping the bike home from here anyway, but cracks me up these faux-authorised dealers that wave the banners but tell you they can't get you parts.
Robopie - won't ask why not to use your name, but of course we'd all love to know.......
