Get a hold of Niko. He used to work for KTM in the UK and in Georgia. He is a nice guy and will help you out. Very good mechanic. nickamoto@gmail.com
Niko speaks good English, fluent Russian and Georgian.

Don't go to KTM Team Georgia. Slava the owner will only try and get your money and the mechanic isn't fit to work on a Chinese scooter.

Nico, Tbilisi motorcycle mechanic contact info

I just spent some days hanging out with Nico. He helped me with a few minor issues on my bike then we spent some time riding together in Western Georgia. Very good guy. He asked if I would post on the Hubb that it is best to contact him directly by phone, not by email since he no longer has internet at his home. His phone number is 574304010. Below are coordinates to a small garage where he works from. You turn down a little alley and there is a row of small garages, his is the 4th one I think. Tell him Jordan says hello.

GPS:
N 41 43.224 E 44 43.829
