KLR 250
Dang, Tyler; a KLR250 that new with such low mileage shouldn't need "tearing apart," if it's running o.k.!

Your bike, but . . . in my experience, KLR250's require very little maintenance; at 3600 miles yours is hardly broken in, IMHO.

If the bike has set up with fuel in the carb, a float bowl drain and maybe some chemical carb cleaning might be necessary, but . . . generally, I'd advise--"If it ain't broke . . . " (You know the rest!)
