Rugged's RR helps reaffirm my decision. It'll be a STrada for me (19" front wheel is big enuff for the type of "dirt" I'll be doing, plus added ABS for the miles of highway. Same rugged construction as the Terra tho. Wish someone made a bigger tank.

Noticed on the cycleworld article, the valve check interval is 6000 miles, vs a KLR650s 26,000 miles.
They both have the same valve drive design.

What's the reason for this?

What you need your dealer is their MOSS computer, in order to:
- clear the 'SERVICE' tag on the dashboard - which is not necessary if its not annoying for you, BUT also
- clear 'fault' codes' from ECU - some of them, like 'EWS failure', may block ECU altogether making your bike unusable.

The rest might be done by yourself.

Thanks. That second line-item you posted certainly is an attention-getter, lol. Although if RE didn't get one running from the law, I suppose my riding style would be even less likely to do so.

Man, it would be a real PITA to come up with a fault code some where in remote South America. How wide spread are the MOSS 'puters? Who's building the i-phone app work around?

The KLR650 valve lash inspection interval is not 26,000 miles, it's 24,000 kilometers (15,000 miles) (per the Kawasaki online manual)

Look up the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act.

Your dealer does not have to perform scheduled maintenance...you can do it yourself, just document when it was done, etc.

More important ... does valve clearance STAY IN SPEC? Most modern shim under bucket are very stable ... which means valve checks can often be done casually. Even my old DR650 screw adjust valves stay put for well over 10,000 miles. (not bad for air/oil cooling)

All True! To make sure you are fully covered I'd suggest working from the Factory Service manual, and keep very organized work records of everything you do on the bike. Be sure to Note mileages and dates.
Use factory parts. You may even have to show competence as a mechanic ( if push ever comes to shove ... very doubtful)

I read either here or Cafe Husky that this valvetrain in one instance at least, was checked at break-in service and was good for 20,000 miles.

Service manual says check every 10,000km. Of course, adjustment may not be necessary.
