Kyrgyzstan - bike export question

We're stuck in Kyrgyzstan & trying to organize shipping the bikes (to Bangkok).
Some (not all) agents have asked for a "Certificate Of Origin" ($30). One agent has also mentioned an 'Export Tax' for our bikes: $260 for a 2002 BMW Dakar, $520 for a 2005 BMW Dakar.

We have our original V5 documents with us + the international registration documents (in russian/persian/...)

Apparently, our problem is that we didn't get any documents for the bikes when we entered the country. Still: Such a hefty export tax seems a little over the top, no?

Anyone got any information about this/Kyrgyz regulations?

Thanks a lot!
