Thumb KLR650 Only Thread......

OK....I would like to have a KLR650 only thread so that we KLR owners can easily find KLR related topics etc rather than looking through the multitute of threads ....just one thread would make life so much easier....no?

I often wondered why there wasn't one -- there are threads for less prolific machines aplenty.

So, what are some of the problems, questions , issues that you guys need any help with if any at all? Maybe that's why the KLR hasn't had a thread of it's own before, we didn't need one....lol

All joking aside, If I can help solve or just help you bounce ideas off of, fire away....

One question,

how do you change the fork oil on an 08 or later. No drain holes at the bottom of the forks like the older
models.

Getting ready to do the Doo on my '06. Can I re-use the old inner and outer gaskets or do I need new ones?

You'll have to remove the forks from the triple clamps and dump them upside down.

You should replace them with new ones and replace the rotor bolt too.
