Bolivia, Cochabama. General Mechanic for "older" bikes
If you are on the Altiplano and having problems, head down to Cochabamba.
We were directed to "Willie" Wilfredo by Charlie (mentioned in http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...-bolivia-29738) when our Funduro 650 was running poorly.
We knew it was the filter but wanted it checked over.
Willie cleaned the filter and plugs. Lubricated things we had not asked for. Topped the battery up. Used a "special" tool to allow he exhaust to breath better and diagnosed the valves may well be a bit closed (we decided to leave them).
His place is hard to find. It is in Barrio Petroleros , on the corner of Mercado and Neri G. No sign but large beige/cream coloured gares. And about 4 dogs.
mercado, Cochabamba, Cochabamba Department, Bolivia - Google Maps #63
He works on older bikes, unlike Charlie who works on the more modern stuff. (Charlie is also a very helpful man).
