Hello fellow ADV riders After 2,5 months of travelling in south america, we are currently stuck in Quito, Equador, due to a dead generator of my F800GS. The spare part is not available through BMW Equador. Even though BMW in general is seemingly doing a good effort to help us (if I understood correctly, the area manager from Panama stepped in, he is trying to get the part from Colombia to be shipped to Equador), the cost is insane at aprox 1400 US $, plus labour cost plus taxes and customs that I will most probably have to pay, and BMW will most probably not cover it under warranty (it's a 3 year old bike). The questions are: Does anyone know the rates of customs and taxes here in Equador? Is someone out there in Equador (wishfull thinking) that could possibly have a used generator and could sell it at a reasonable price? Is there someone that could custom make /repair a generator (new coils) ? I checked ebay, I can only find one piece in Europe, that could take quite a lot of time to arrive here, because the seller doesn't ship to Americas, so I must have it shipped to my country in Europe then from there arrange a shipment to Equador.
