F650gs rider and bike stranded in Russia with blown water pump. suggestions?

They are 300km west of Omsk and late on their visa. Anywhere that could store the bike or repair? Even a rider with mechanical skills that could fly in with pump fix and tour as he close to walking away from it...

There are a few HUBB communities located in Russia but you would have to see if there is one near to where ever this bike is (it's a big country!):-
Horizons Unlimited Travellers Communities introduction | Horizons Unlimited

Alternatively, a local bike club might be able to assist in sourcing the parts neeeded; the subject of the F650GS water pump has been discussed in the BMW tech section quite a lot - not so much in the "Travellers Seeking Travellers" which is where you are at present.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
