This KLR doesn't 'suck in HP', it blows HP.





I'd guess 75 HP at the wheel?

This Cody Y----- lists you as his sponsor. He is quite the antisocial ass online. Folks stop the conversation due to that type of communication. Some stop using the forums. Some of us will never do business with his ‘sponsor.’ Nice. Fuck him, and fuck you for being his ‘sponsor.’

I have ridden dual sport motorcycles since 1970, “Adventure” traveled since 1975. I own two dual sport motorcycles. I know a few (lot) people who do the same. I will spread the word. Thanks.

Ho-ly shit, some of you fuckers are full-on nutjobs. It's a fucking MOTORCYCLE. It's not a part of WHO YOU ARE AS A PERSON.

If someone is annoying you, or you don't like them, put them on ignore! For fucks sake, people! What's next, I "diss" the XRR and someone shoots up my house? Am I in fucking bizzarro world now?

It's like they gave a bunch of rednecks with poor coping skills a computer. Jesus Christ, nut the fuck up.

It Does Not

A few thoughts...If you baught a KLR to go fast you did not reasearch your bike. The KLR does exactly what it is suposed to do and does it well. Can you make a KLR faster, Yes....Why would you? I would not haul wood with a Corvette...Its the wrong tool for the job, by a truck.... Same thing goes for the KLR. If you want to go fast get a fast bike.

You can only go so fast over rocks and through the woods. I'm pretty sure my KLR could keep up with any bike under those conditions.
I can ride my KLR up to 89MPH as indicated on GPS, but I don't like to ride that fast.
Hell. I don't even like riding my F800GS that fast.
But I had to do ride that fast to keep up with my friend, who can be a speed demon at times when he wants to get somewhere in a hurry.
I usually slow him down for both of our safety.
I thought my KLR was a dog, and it was.
But I recently re-jetted the carb and realize it was a dog from the factory. (bought it new in 98)
It's so much more responsive and perky now. And don't flame me for using the word perky please.
I love my KLR. Just like everyone else loves their whatever brand bike.
Now let's shut up and go riding!

Exactly my point on this whole debacle. It cant. You cannot break the laws of physics and X suspension, with Y ground clearance, and Z strength to weight of the individual components = NO.

These (above) are the compromises made for cost and street-ability. And they can only be overcome to the point where you should buy a different bike.

Yep.

You're an idiot.
Bye bye

I assume that the smiley face means that this is a joke.

If not then YOU are an idiot.

Explain to me why all these guys have done big bore motors and KX front ends and all this other crap if Im wrong.

Instead of being a child and saying nanny nanny boo boo, tell me. If Im such an idiot it should be pretty easy for a MENSA member such as yourself

I have. And I see where youre going, however the idea is completely different.

My stable:
2006 KTM 525 plated for linking trails/Colorado singletrack/BigBend/Baja etc.
2005 KTM 950adv for solo travel, commuting, gravel roads, and day trips w the wife
1995 DR200 for the wife and pit duty at the races
2008 KTM 300xc race bike enduro/harescrambles
1978 BMW R100S passed down from my grandfather. Currently being restored as a "rider" for heirloom duty.

A tool for every job, with the 950 as the catch-all bike. Could a KLR/Vstrom/Etc fill the same role? Of course. But not with the same smile on my face, or as much daylight under the front tire.
