    Hello folks

    Overlander from Europe to SE-Asia, currently in the middle of China here. Plan to arrive in Thailand/Chiang Mai around 15-20 next month if everything gies reasonably well.

    My bike - a Yamaha XT660Z Tenere 2011 will need a decent service with valve check and all the other stuff that supposed to be done at big services - when arriving Thailand. Has anybody any suggestions to where I should ask to have this service done? I know this bike is not sold or probably very common in Thailand, but still there got to be some place that can help me.....

    I have the gasket to the top plate where to inspect valves and I also have spare oil filter that fits and spark plugs etc etc. So I dont think I need any spares except from engine oil, brake fluid etc.

    Can anyone recommend any garage or mechanic that can do this job and I would buy you a beer or two....:D

    Thanks in advance!

    Norway - Thailand 2014 on a motorbike and beyond....

    Try Piston Shop (listed in the list of shops) -- they work on a lot of different bikes and should be able to do that for you. The owner speaks English and is very knowledgable.

    Arrived in Chiang Mai safely. 3 months on the road from Norway to here went smooth.

    Contacted the Yamaha Big Bike shop at Huay Kaew rd but they wouldnt even consider the job. Well - fair enough.
    Then contacted the Piston shop that said yeas we will do it.....:thumbup: So next week the Ten will be served there.

    Thanks again for helpful advices folks!
