Mechanic needed in Eastern Turkey if possible

Hello,

We are having some problems with our DRZ400E. Both of our bikes since crossing the border from Iran into Turkey are running rough and needing a good tune. Having the clear Safari tank on one bike we can see alot of sediment in the tank, so will also be needing our tanks to be cleaned. One bike is also using oil but not leaking or smoking. I have heard that it could be a problem with crankcase breather?
We are also after tyres for the bikes. We are hoping someone out there might be able to point us in the right direction.

Thanks in advance for any help or info you may have.

Mark

There used to be a guy in Van. I posted that in the repair shops section:

Lots of things may have changed in Van since the big earthquake. If he is still around, even if he is in a different location, you should be able to ask just about anyone on a biggish bike in that area where his shop is now. He also does the cops bikes, so you could ask them as well.

For tyres please check out this guy:
