Send your moto to Bavaria Guatemala and it will be wecked
Hi guys, I want to recommend you all to avoid using Bavaria Motors in Guatemala, at least for airheads.
And I frankly think you should not give them any other bike either.
Bavaria Motors Guatemala is in a long protracted attrition war with BMW. They already lost the car dealership and will eventually loose the motorcycle dealershop also, if it was not because of some obscure commercial laws that protect them.
But, in a nutshell. Bavaria Motors Guatemala KNOWS that they will loose the dealership today if BMW can take it away from them, so they DO NOT CARE about ruining the brand's image or doing responsible work. What for? They lost the business already even if they still hold ot, so their idea is to destroy the brand.
Now with my experience with them
Sent my airhead in with an oil leak. Was told three seals were changed, two on the gearbox front and back, one in the engine where the clutch is.
The bike was delivered with a whole bunch of problems. It did not start! Then it leaked oil almost immediately, in the old places and new ones.
So Bavaria Motors actually left my bike in worse condition than when I booked it in.
And they installed my clutch cable incorrectly and broke it. And cut a harness cable that left me almos stranded. And disassembled my back wheel due to puncturing the tube while testing and assembled it without a rim tape.
And now in Costa Rica BMW we found out that Bavaria Motors Guatemala put some sort of goo in the leaking seal to mask the leak so I left the country and got stuck elsewhere.
I have sent a letter to them had discussions, to no avail.
These people are thieves and crooks and I will personally call them when they finally loose the dealership to remind them of the treatment I received.
Sadly, there are no BMW fixers in GT. I have found the people at Costa Rica to be very very good, but you also have to keep an eye on them.
Safe travels with a sound bike
