You are welcome. I am lucky because there are some good KLR and other bike resources here on the left coast. First lesson learned..... GREASE THEM BEARINGS!!!

I bought my bike from.the original.owner. U sure of the mileage due to broken cable or wheel hub issues.

Always been wanting to check.out the swingarm bolt and bearings but have been unsure of my.mechanical capabilities. Your photos make it look like something I can do. And I think I will next time I raise the bike up.

Just put a new rear k270 so it's hard to not ride it currently. Next week I'm upgrading the doo and spring.

Can't wait for more on Shrek!! I fucking love that color of the 06

I needed to soak the chain in something that wouldn't degrade the O-rings, and had some anti corrosion and anti oxidation properties..... so.....

let it soak awhile. I'm gonna let it set overnight. That Jet A lets off a lot of fumes so I suggest away from the garage.

Braided brake lines. With the rotor and the pads really brings the braking under control.

Fork brace. I forget which brand. Keeps the front end from walking on turns. Heavy duty fork boots.
