    'Doh!

    Done that a few times, but with an e-starter and the kill switch off.

    It's relief though, when you realize it was you, not the bike!

    Yeah gotta say it made me laugh enough to post it,, I'll cheerfully accept a lil public humiliation & a bike running well, verse a bike that Really won't start, I guess it's kinda like when ever I take my KLR out mudding it's never a question of "if" I'm gonna dump it,, more of a matter of when ,how many times and at what speed, lucky for me I never became cool enough to have any reputation to uphold lol

    People,



    My father is selling his KLR 650. At the present moment this is all I know.............
    • It is the year before they changed body styles
    • It runs perfect
    • Low miles
    • New parts
    • New tires
    • When he bought it, he had Casey Cycle City in Newport News go through and flush, service ,and tune the whole bike.
    • He is asking $3,000.00
    • The bike is in Newport New, VA
    I'll try and get some pics and more info later...........

    And yesterday's fun involved : work, then fixing my inlaws fence, then replacing a broken kickstart on the YZ,
    Since the shop wanted $330 to replace it I thought it was worth a shot to try it myself first, glad we did. It took us about 45 minutes.

    So has it just sat for 7 years or what? That thing is INSANELY clean! Wow!

    Is anyone on here interested in my Cortech sport saddlebags or tail bag? They're used, but still functional. I can provide pics if needed, but they'll be crappy tablet photos.

    Those tires should be good for some great video footage at Damneck.

    Are you kidding me!!! You might as well get a moped or a Harley if your gonna just ride on the road. No offense to the Harley owners...
    My 14yo daughter just saw the pics of the bike after I showed her the post you wrote. She said," tell him I will take it out for a spin in the dirt and burn the carbon out of it for him very couple weeks."

    That's a sweet XR but it would be a shame to deny her the pleasure of playing in her natural habitat. You could get a set of sumo wheels and swap 'em out in about 20 minutes.
