Use of garage for beer maybe?


I'm from Canada and I'm planning on taking a little trip around South America on my '07 dakar. So far I've come from Vancouver and made it down to Ventura Ca. Before I enter Mexico there are a few things I need to do including:
New rubber - spokes tensioned, and wheels balanced too I figure.
New chain and sprockets - not needed but maybe better safe than sorry? Anyone know how available those parts may be in the south side?
Flush and clean rad
Change out fuel filter/regulator
Change Steering head bearing.

I don't have any of these parts. I guess I'm looking for some advice as to where to go to get or install the parts, or perhaps someone is even willing to work out some sort of agreement so I can get the stuff and rip in their garage for a day.

My schedule is open, so if you can help it would be greatly appreciated!

Some background on me - I'm 25 years old, from Canada, graduated in April and worked in the oil patch to pay off my student loans and save up for this 4 month trip. I have a blog set up at check it out over the next few months if you want to see how my trip goes.
