Flat tires, change light bulbs, hand scrape the carbon build up from the piston and valves, cut and weld- the local bengkel can do almost any repair or modification to scooters and motorcycles. If they don’t have the part they will go to a parts shop in Denpasar by scooter to get it. If they can not find it there, they order it. If you can not wait for the part to be ordered (for most folks here the bike is their sole means of transport, to work, taking the kids to school, etc.) these guys will fabricate what you need from… whatever may be laying around.
Almost anywhere on Bali you can close your eyes and throw a rock and chances are the rock will hit a bengkel!
