Novosibirsk bike shop

Hello, hope someone can help.

I need to know the location of a bike shop in Novosibirsk. I need to get a re-bore and new piston fitted to my XT600E.

Can anyone give an address or GPS co-ordinates? Does anyone have experience of using a shop there and whether they are any good?

I've been told about nbs motor, anyone have address or other information on them?

I know there are many bike shops in Novosibirsk , since I went to loads of them , but they mostly sell clothing and a few of them tyres..but very few mechanics.

The biggest shop was near the power plant , (thats as far as I know for the address) a local biker should show it to you if you ask nicely like I did.

a rebore is a pretty big job...

If you can limp to Irkusk there is the bikers club and stass ought to be able to tell you where the big workshop for bikers is , its 1900 km though.

Also if you can limp to Ulan Baatar a total of 2700km there is a local mechanic who is taking an xt600 apart. Or you can get parts here shipped ery quickly via DHL 2 days inc customs vs 2 weeks for anywhere non moscow, unfortunately for you David Lambeth who has the parts in his lockup is on his hols for the next 3 weeks so you may well be stuck.

All of these threads have information in the Novosibirsk area.
Or try to find someone from the No Name Brotherhood. They will put you in the right direction
Always try the search function. You usually get information right away, instead of having to wait for a reply.

im trying to find the address for you, The shop is called NBS Motor (in English translation). It is a bit out of town, by the power plant.
I met a guy there called Andrey Anderson, who speaks English. If you do not have any luck on finding the shop on your own you could try emailing him on vf750(at)mail(dot)ru.

I just found their web site
Ìîòîöèêëû, ìîòîöèêëû Ìîñêâà, ìîòîöèêëû èç ßïîíèè - ÍÁÑìîòîð

they have a really good mechanic and shop. Andrey was amazing and really helped me out when I had a broken rocker. Parts sent from Moscow will take ages.

Good Luck - its the best place until Irkutsk then Vladivostok.

contact a guy called Stas, +7 913 917 2953 or motonsk {AA*TT} gmail {DD**O**TT} com ... He is a bike tyre dealer, but knows which bike workshop will be best for each job. Stas speaks english.
