Mechanic in Esfahan

Greetings! I'm currently in lovely Esfahan with a broken rear brake master cylinder on my KTM 990. Does anyone know a local mechanic who could help me fix this? Alternative is getting parts from Dubai by DHL...

Cheers, Jeroen

Info from HUBB -NW of Tehran in Ghazvin : Satrap Motor Alborz

Also- Iran Yellow Pages comes up with a few pointers. In Tehran - not too far- worth a phone call?

Or ask local hotel receptionists/ any policeman or army / fuel station attendant / garage etc.
Something should give! good luck Jeroen

Found a mechanic who got the neccesary parts from Tehran and fixed my bike in two days.

His name is Saeid and you can reach him on 776344 or 0913113489 (mobile). He doesn't speak English so get someone local to call him. Like all Iranians I've met, he goes out of his way to help you.

Bertrand, the Kermani dealership isn't at the indicated address anymore.

I'm off to Hamadan!

Good that your bike is all fixed up- Thread updated according to your info- If you have the coords to Saeid's workshop to put up here- that would be great.
Safe onwards!
