I can't say if friendly or not cause they're only speaking Spanish, but at least good to know there is one if you're in trouble in Morocco or you need a dealer on the way...

KTM Dealer in Togo. They are located about 3 to 4 kilometers east of the Ghana border on the coastal road. They carry a good range of spares and accessories and some tires. I dealt with Michelle - a 3 time Dakar competitor.

Give Demaks a call - number above - they will sort you out. About 15 mins ride into Turkish side - worth the visit - take the ferry (not the bridge) from near Sultanamet (where car ferries leave).

Turns out there's a KTM dealer in Lusaka Zambia as well! At the moment, they cater mostly to the scrambler/enduro crowd and the rapidly growing MX bunch, but maybe if more RTW or trans-Africa bikes were seen in Lusaka they'd start stocking LC4 and Adventure bits as well.

As it is, they have on hand some useful basics that might work out(air filters, brake pads, cables, some apparel, levers, twist grips, tyres, spokes etc) but again the parts might not fit the larger bikes. If you're really in a fix, though, hey can order what you need from South Africa.

The owners (Julie and Ray) have been riding KTMs for over 20 years, and have trained a local mechanic to fix them. I think they're moving out of their garage soon to the MX track South of Lusaka on the road to Livingstone.

Contact them at (260)-96-757-757. Give them a ring and maybe you'll decide to explore the waterfalls and wilderness of Zambia rather than just flying through it like most riders do on their way to somewhere else. There are miles of underexplored areas of this country...come have a look.

The blokes on the counter speak next to no english but are friendly and willing, also a very good english speaking mechanic in their workshop.
The shop is hard to miss with a big orange KTM sign on the highway (Barcelona road) about 1.5 KM from the centre heading south on the left.

Its on route 43 next to the intersection with 13 under the bridges.

The owner, mechanic, salesman, all around good guy is Nobuya Yamashika. He really knows LC4 and LC8 engines, WP suspension, and electrics. His little shop is immaculate, his prices more than fair, and is one of the few KTM dealers in all of Japan who has any sort of stock on hand. He speaks no english, but no worries. Highly recommended.

I have a brief update on the KTM Lusaka dealership posted by Hunter Nielson some 18 months ago, run by Julie and Ray Wilson.

They still cater mainly for the MX crowd, but the mechanic, Charles, performed a very thorough service on my 640 Adventure. Julie threw in lots of sandwiches & drinks while we worked on the bike, and when I accidentally snapped a crucial banjo bolt for my oil filter, they were kind enough to send their daughter Abi to chauffeur me around the various auto spares stores in Lusaka for several hours trying to find a replacement.

They are moving to new premises in the next two weeks, for which the contact details are as follows:

Julie and Ray Wilson
Ph: +260 96 757 757
Mukwa Drive
Eureka, Lilayi
Lusaka, Zambia

The new address is about 10kms before you reach the city on the road from Livingstone.

Easy to find: stay on Ruta 3 through town. New shop is on the left 'Honda' and 'yamaha' are clues when heading south to Ushuaia.

Not a dealer but very good mechanics and very trustworthy in a place not exactly swimming in bike shops.

Changed my clutch plates (twice), repacked the exhaust, changed rear spring.

Highly recommnded.
