Having said that, it is not possible to permanently import a used vehicle into Colombia. Same goes for used motor vehicle spares. Just in case anyone gets wrong end of stick.

Paul at Casa Kiwi in Medellin

If/when you make it to Medellin look up the owner of the hostel Casa Kiwi, there flyers are everywhere. Paul is KLR650 rider who has been in Colombia for about 4 years now. He has bought and sold bikes in Colombia and can give advice about how it all works. He has a great hostel and give a price break for the moto guys.
