    My rear shock off my KLR 01 is way to sloppy!! :eek1
    I have he repair kit but need someone to rebuild it. (Hydrogen/oil/highg pressure air).
    Im currently in Panama and will be out of here in the next couple of days north.

    Does anyone know where i can get this rebuilt in Costa Rica or Nicaragua??
    Also, if you guys know any camp sites, i have the map unfolded in front of me!
    Cheers,

    Maybe try Larson Motors
    Contact Jurgen Larson at (tel/fax) (506) 22 21 77 48. Don´t know if he has hydrogen though.

    A question to a question!

    As you sure you mean Hydrogen or do you mean Nitrogen? Nitrogen is used to fill struts like Aircraft. Nitrogen will have no Oxygen in it, and no moisture. This way when landing you do not have a froozen strut that will not extend.

    Nitrogen can be found in San Jose. I would think that the BMW dealer in Pavas would be able to handle this for you.

    Address
    From USA embassy 2 blocks south, 2 blocks east, Parque industrial de Pavas, San José, Costa Rica.

    Larson's place is great for that. Just a little hard to find. If you come up to Guanacasta, Playa Del Coco you Vlad. 1/2 mile before beach on left. Ask anyone. look 4 yellow sign.

    Has anyone tried to email them?
    None of their email addresses work for me. I just received 4 bounced back emails.

    You might try contacting them through thier web site. With all the new unrestricted telephone and web presents in Costa Rica, thanks to the new free trade agreement thier email may not be working.

    Web Site: http://www.motocicletasbmw.com/main.html I hope it works.

    A welding supply house will have the gas needed.
    If the repair shop doesn't know where to get it, that could be a clue for chosing a different shop.
