Kawasaki shop in Belem, Brazil?
 
Anyone know of a Kawasaki shop in Belem, Brazil (in Para)? If so, please post with an address and/or a telephone number.

Thanks for your help!

Hmmmmmmm

Whats the problem ??

Theres a bike club I (we) hooked up with in Belem who couldnt do enough for us and told us to give their details to any other travelers passing through.

Are you after parts ??

Actually, my helpful wife, Laurie, was asking on my behalf. I will need new sprockets for my '05 KLR650 before I leave Belem. I think they will get me to Belem.

There are bike shops in Belem... No main dealers as far as I could see though.

Yep - sprockets needed for KLR650
 
Sorry I wasn't more specific :rolleyes2:

LaurieD,

There is a webpage in Brazil, but I'm not sure about a Kawasaki dealer in Belém, probably there isn't.
Kawasaki

But KLR 650 was never sold in Brazil.


Kind regards,
Reginaldo Rohden.

No Kawasaki parts for the KLR650 here. I am waiting for parts to be sent from home. Thanks, everyone.

Thanks, all!
 
The HU Community process helped yet again.

When I posted this thread and sent out an email to the Belem community, we heard from Alex Reis, a member of a local Belem motorcycle club, who got in touch immediately and offered help and friendship to SgtMarty. He also knew a mechanic, Silvio, who has worked on Kawasakis; unfortunately, the sprockets that Marty needed were not available locally so he had to wait while I shipped them to him. Alex and others helped make sure that Marty enjoyed his stay.

Long story short, the parts got there on Monday the 16th; the bike got reassembled on Tuesday, and on Wednesday Marty and the KLR departed on a boat headed up the Amazon to Manaus. So all is well and the saga continues.
