Well, that's an interesting way to gauge rebuild intervals...

But seriously, what I was trying to ask is at what mileage you think you will be pulling your forks apart, etc.?

Thanks!

The 20,000Km+ winter tear down. I'll be having a look and if what I see gives me the shits OR if the new oil doesn't work and gives me the shits....

I'll be looking at some shock treatment.

As far as anything goes, like skyhook, multi-adjustable, wiz bang magic carpet DES error suspension goes..Fine as long as they give me the source code and the complete engineering specs and software tools with the bike.

This hidden propriety computer stuff has gone far enough I think.

The KLR owner in me senses an opportunity to pick up everyones "lightly" used
items off ebay and not sweat the small stuff.

I'll just get some fancy shock stickers from Jaumev. No one looks that close anyway.

I also put the penske front and back with new springs, but I kept my 800 lb spring and the OEM shock, also still have the OEM fork springs, and some .95s and I never owned a KLR.

Pluric,

Too late to claim you "KLR Thriftiness" with the Tenere. You are way deep$$$$. Maybe not Penske$$
But you can't hide those wheels by Woody.

KLR ownership can go either way. Feel the need to be cheap, blame it on
the KLR. Need to splurge? Again blame it on all the years of self denial
during KLR ownership. Ya just can't lose.

The Tenere just would not accept the duct tape wheel repair that a KLR would have
been grateful for. I'm having to make a few adjustments now living with the blue princess.

I think none of us own KLRs. The damned things last so long that they are like airplanes.

They pass through our hands so that we accumulate some stories and experience, but we are just their care takers for a while, till they go to their next person.

I'd like to make it official. My son is smart enough to let me store, maintain, register, insure and
just keep it ready for when there may be an invite for him. I did manage to get him to keep
an SV in his garage, wait I own that garage too. Damn kids.


Oh well, ya gotta love the little darlings.
