Or, get another set of wheels and put 90/10 tires on them. Try Conti- Trail Attack's

My 1995 with a 705 kit does the same. I'm installing a Leo Vince exhaust and jd jet kit in a bit. I hope that stumble goes away

That'll work, too. I run Shinko 705's on my stock wheels and have no trouble harassing much more capable bikes on twisty roads. Of course, once they hit a straightaway...................................... ...........

Uni-Track Lever Installation

All -- I removed the Unirack linkage from my 05 KLR to lube the bearings and the like -- installed the zerks, everything is coming along nicely, untill I attempt to install the lever into the fame . . . . "tapping" it with any hammer I am capable of lifting is no help --

seems the sleeve that sliding into the bearings is actually a lil longer than the space allocated in the frame, as if the frame had collapsed slightly -- I've got the sleeve in the freezer as we speak, but an not certainly that will shrink the lil dear enough . . . . .

any hints, gents?

I replied to your other post. But again.....just loosen the rear most bolt that goes through the frame and motor.

And you might want to loosen the swing arm pivot bolt too.

Follow up to my "pinging" issue...

Seems it has been resolved and looks like it was a rattle of sorts. It was either the relay I found laying against the back of the instrument cluster behind the fairing but not as likely as the heat sheild on the header pipe. I tweaked them both at the same time. I can get the rattle to occur but I really have to work at it now and at a higher rpm. Sooo glad this is resolved, just some fine tuning now to eliminate it completely. Final carb settings are: idle mixture screw at 1 7/8 turns out, 45 pilot jet and 150 main jet, stock needle with approx. .035 shim and I'm happy with how she runs. Here I am testing things out,

Chinese Battery Slap-Down

Things had been looking like this recently:



Yesterday, temps went over 50 degrees, and the roads outside of Mirkwood were mostly dry. I pointed the KLR toward the Canadian border.

What a great day! I stopped to visit a friend at the border, had lunch, and pointed back.

Lake Willoughby was still frozen. Although the ice shacks were off the ice, people were still fishing.



The parking lot was a swamp. . .



Hopping back on the bike, I was shocked to find no lights, no spark, nada. I'd replaced the battery recently with a "bargain" AGM battery from Ebay, so I was fairly confident that that wasn't the issue. However, I couldn't find anything else in the field that was an issue.

Luckily, a friend was able to give me a ride to get my trailer, and the bike made it back to the garage with a minimum of fuss. I connected the charger to the brand-new battery -- nothing. I tested it -- stone dead.

After popping the 5+ year-old Yuasa that I'd kept as a spare back in, the bike came to life instantly.

I learned a good lesson, to be sure. Luckily, I was on the main road, not far from home. If I'd been further out in the bush, it could have become a serious issue. I think I'm all done with "bargain" batteries. I will replace the Yuasa, but I'm going to look for a name-brand, reliable unit this time.

Money well spent. Going on 5 years with never an issue. The old adage is true "you get what you pay for" !

There are plenty of KLR wheels on eBay all the time.

Agreed. I'd like to try the Trail Attacks, but for the price the Shinkos are irresistible.

Shinkos work. Good tires for the dollar.

Busted petcock

I was changing my fuel line today, when the barbed fitting that the fuel line attaches to on the petcock pulled out completely!

It appears that it is simply a press fit ?

Anyone have any luck fitting this hose barb back into the petcock?
How about carefully applying some JB weld?

Thanks
Glen

The Shinko 705's are great on the street!

Take a look at tristate battery. The carry Deka batteries which work very well. I have them in two of my bikes. Great terminals.
