Marknet says the rotor puller tool is a 22 x 1.5 mm bolt. You might be able to find one locally instead of buying a puller. But the Motion Pro tool is less than $10.

My first, and only, KLR is a 1990 that I paid $600 for. I lucked into a nicely farkled bike!

I ordered everything from Rocky Mountain ATV. They had a good price for everything and shipped really quickly. I already had a BIG A** breaker bar because I also wrench on my wife's '90 Suburban...

Another Doo Done

I recently got a chance (read time and $$$) to do the doohickey on my '90 KLR at 37,000 miles. It was the one "common" upgrade that previous owners had not done yet. I found the original doohickey...

Last year I built a Big Cee sport dash for my '90 and mounted a Signal Dynamics Voltage Monitor (among other toys). It uses a single multi-color LED to tell you how the voltage at the battery is...

CRF150F or CRF150R?

I finally have my '90 KLR on the road (took a while to get a replacement title out of California) and I am watching eBay for a CRF150 master cylinder. I noticed some folks listing CRF150F parts and...
