feeling violated is your call -- what the bike is worth, to you, may not be what it would be worth, to me . . . . .

that said, if it is that far away, it's tough to KNOW what kind of shape it's really in . . . . .

my first question would be, why does this bike have less than 250 miles a year on it?

New 2013 (or 2012) KLR650s for less than $ 3850?

KLR purchase ..timing is everything

I have owned a few KLRs and have a 2012 now that I may sell. I bought and farkleled her up and after getting her like I wanted may sell. I know there's a flea mkt section and may list there later.

In my experience if a seller can get 1/3 to 1/2 of the $ he spent on accessories he's lucky. Thats the question one has to answer...pull the farkles and sell the bike stock or sell it all fixed up. Thing is, everybody's idea of a perfect KLR is going to be different.

Not trying to hijack the thread here...hope I'm not breaking any rules..but my black 2012 has 3300 miles..SW motech bars..adv monster #60 LEDs ..hid on both low and high beams..Cogent rear front springs..wolfman tank bag..nice rear tail bag. Larger windshield. New hiendau k60 on rear. It's black ..the Matt finish with black wheels. Ill ask more but if it sold for $5200 I'd be happy. Oils been changed 4 times..I truly think its better than new.

Op...enjoy the hunt. IMHO the best part of buying a new bike is the hunt. KLRs are kinda like dead cats. They are everywhere.

I have found the opinions usefull , I ask because I have never owned a KLR , but have bought bikes in here and tripled the mileage and sold it for what I paid for it . I guess it's all in what that particular person is looking for at the time .
I did ask why so little miles and his answer was he has sportbikes and didn't like riding this one . Why he kept it for 6 years I don't know .
I will keep looking for the perfect bike for me , and will probably ask other questions if the time arises
