Turkey, Best Mechanic in Istanbul
I've just had my cam replaced on my 2006 KTM 640 Adventure after a catastrophic failure by a very competent mechanic. He mainly works on Jap bikes and BMW's and had never worked on a KTM before but took his time, understood how everything worked and used his seemingly infinite supply of contacts including KTM dealers, friends with KTM bikes and university lectureres to repair my bike before I head further East. It is now in better condition than when I left the UK. He now likes KTM bikes because of their ingenius simplicity.
He is located in a huge industrial estate where there is nothing but garages, bodywork shops and tool and parts shops. Whatever you need doing, can be welded, pressed, drilled or ground there!
All the people who work in the area are ridiculously friendly and the food from the small shops is cheap. Its much better than the touristy area of Istanbul, so much more genuine.
His address is Ataturk Oto Sanayi Sitesi 2. Kisim 9 Sk. No 294 Maslak, Istanbul.
