Okay, so I read it again and now believe he is saying "Senior Pluric has the balls of a bull to

Si no recuerdo mal antes de apretarla hay que aflojar los tornillos de las tijas de la suspensión, lo hizo mi mecánico y no lo recuerdo exactamente, si no lo ves claro se lo puedo preguntar.

Estoy seguro que Pluric puede aportar sus profundos conocimientos de mecánica, ¿no crees?. Aúnque si fuera sobre mujeres seguro que acertaría aún más, es un experto!

(Uff, que alivio poder escribir algo sin el corrector del word!! )

Are you agree with the solution Pluric?
Ha! Google translate to the rescue.....

Hi Nicholas, sorry, I have no idea what may be the transmission.
Shortly after having the bike felt a little play in the steering and was the largest remaining nut under the handlebar. Now I have the bike at home but I think it takes a plug of Ayacucho.
If I remember correctly before tightening the screws, loosen the suspension seatposts, my mechanic and he did not remember exactly, if you do not see it clear I can ask.

I'm sure Pluric can bring their deep knowledge of mechanics, do not you think?. Although it's on women even more certain that would be correct, is an expert!

(Whew, what a relief to write something without the spelling of word!)

Had the same problem. Turned out it was only packing grease on the knuckles of the shaft drive. Once its melted, it'll never happen again. Just ride it and no problemo.

That's a KLR with a Versys 650 Twin inserted into it. I have met the gentleman who built the bike in the pictures (he just purchased my personal Versys so he can build another one in a 2nd Generation KLR donor), and from what he says this type of sled might be what many of us are looking for... BTW, apparently the Versys twin is no heavier than the KLR single it replaces. He also said the Versys engine had smoother, better power in off-road situations, yet could also easily cruise at over 85 MPH all day long on the slab.

If Kawasaki could build an under 400-lb Versys-engine-based twin with *REAL* off-road capable suspension, a 21"/18" wheel combination, and a real dual-purpose riding position I think they'd have a real market winner on its hands.

Just my two centavos... OMMV.

Dallara



p.s. - BTW, the builder of the bike above is considering the idea of building these KLR/Versys hybrids and making them available for sale.

Then you should jump on his build thread...

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=797568

And post up that you're interesting in purchasing one. He's in the process of determining how much interest there is in offering complete KLR/Versys hybrid/conversion bikes for sale. He can build 'em, and from what he told me he can turn one out pretty quickly as long as he can source the proper donor bikes in a reasonable amount of time. He's working on his second one now, and is already thinking about the third.

Some of his solutions to the problem of the installing the Versys engine in the KLR chassis are pretty brilliant... Some because they are so *simple* relatively - like flipping the Versys throttle body upside down to allow him to use the stock KLR airbox. Another great point is that literally every part in the build is a Kawasaki one. That, of course, means that you can walk into any Kawasaki store on the planet and find the parts you need to maintain it. He told me he really worked hard at making sure it would be easy to maintain, easy to work on, and just as easy as either donor Kawasaki models to find parts for.

And the best part is that when he was all through the bike only weighed like 5-lbs more than a stock KLR-650!!! But with, what? Something like nearly double the power!

Remember, these Versys/Ninja 650/ER-6n engines (modified, of course) have been winning AMA Mile flat-track races this past season.

If you really are interested it's worth posting in his thread and dropping him a PM.

Just FYI...

Dallara

As a gen 1 KLR owner it has to be asked, how do you stop that thing?
The brakes look stock. Does the Versys motor have a doohickey?

I have read of something like that before, but those drops definitely smelled like gear oil. I will do my commuting ride today and we'll see what happens. I had two beemers before and I am kind of paranoic with final drive leaking!!!

Thanks Dallara, great read. I'm about a day or two from pulling the trigger on a 685 kit for my old girl but might have to wait on this developement. Since this is a S10 thread I can only say, " My Tenere is so good there is very little to comment on, it is boringly solid and I love it."
