It happens all over asia, about reporting something stolen,report it.its a thin chance you'll get it back at all.its like going through customs.if customs want it for themselves they will confiscate from you and make up a reason to say it was illegal to bring in here and find out later they are using your stuff.customs in Indonesia is a scam.

I am not sure what happened to all the police in Bali but since covid there are none to be seen. Everywhere you go some little person has taken there mufflers off their motorcycles with NO respect for the law or the well being of anyone but themselves . In every other country in the world the only people that take their mufflers off their motorcycles do it because they are missing their middle leg.
