Sorry to hear that. I found the following under Broome:

Additionally there's also a Honda dealer whom I visited. Very friendly:

So, good luck!

Smile huu, down under

hello guys,

I thought you are in Indonesia. And instead you are mistreating the bikes again ;-))

sorry I dont know a mechanic around Broome. not even in Port Headland, if that was the name of the village south of 80 mile beach.

what does it mean - you killed the piston ?

try to find a workshop and ask if you can work on the bike yourself, not easy in down under, or try to ask somebody from the HU Community if you can work on the bike in his garage ...

email me directly and there will be a solution, I remember a nice campsite in Broome and the city is relaxed, but not the best place to fix the engine

enjoy a VB

Mika

Cool

Hi there,

depends. Beginning of next week I'll travel up north to Sydney, maybe Brisbane, stay around Coonabarabran for a week or two, then head down to Adelaide via Broken Hill. Does this somehow fit to your travelling plans? Hope to be back in Melbourne by mid November, because I'll leave for Tassie end of Nov for 3-4 weeks, then return to Melbourne.

Yeah, would be interesting to catch up with you people :-)

Hans

I'm currently living in Broome and have not been impressed by Small Engine World - which seems to be in line with what locals think. I've had some work done by Bart from Pearl Coast Motorcycles - don't have his number to hand, but his shop has just moved to behind Blackmans Hardware, on Guy St (near Bunnings, right at the end near Port Drive (closest to the ocean)).

He's got a very tidy workshop, has done good work for me, and at a reasonable rate. Am happy to recommend him
