HELP needed-broke/breaking down in Guatemala

2382 Views 14 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  pinkman
Hi folks. My 2004 DL1000 is starting to leak hydraulic fluid out of the clutch. It appears to be coming from the piston seal down by the front sprocket area. We are just inside the Guatemala border and are trying to figure out a way to get the parts. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I had to fill the resevoir up with fluid a couple of times today. As I pulled the cylinder off I could see fluid dripping out. I seems to be coming out at a steady and disturbing rate.

One of the issues is simply phoning outside Guatemala. None of the access codes seem to work. Then, if I find the part, how do I get it shipped down here?

Right now there are two possibilities:
1) Hoping to get the part sent down to Guatemala some place down the road
2) Turning back to Mexico and Tuxla G where there is a Suzuki dealer.

Greg, in the event you cannot locate the parts in Guat, PM me. I can pick them up here in the US and have them shipped through a friend who sells auto parts to latin america out of miami. probably wont be too cheap, but better than waiting weeks for a part to get sent through a local dealer, as is often the case in latin america. ( has the part for $83.65, if it's the part gwq mentioned)

ps, to dial out of guat to the US you must dial 011 then enter the US area code. if you are calling from a cell phone you can use the "+" sign instead of 011.
