    2011 bought new in July 2011. 9,800 and counting......daily. Give it gas and oil and watch it go. Best value out there.

    I had a 2005 KLR650 (and a 2001 KLR250) that I rode on the street. I loved the way that bike fit me. Everything just felt right. It was a bit tall for me though. I finally sold it at about 15,000 miles.
    I remember when the redesign happened around what, 2208 (?), that they were having terrible problems with heavy oil useage. Mine never used oil between changes despite lots of 60-70 mph freeway use. Has Kawasaki fixed this problem??

    Where is everybody's mileage now: I'm now at 51,378. No issues except I stripped the bolts to the cam chain guide- my fault. So i'm trying to figure that one out, but my goal is to run it until It doesn't work any more.:evil

    10,406 when I bought it. it now has 11,777 mine is a 2000. It was a Farm bike when I bought it. The PO just used it around the farm to check his irrigation and crops and it wasn't taken care of very well. So after allot of TLC she is ready to get a bunch of miles on her. :-)
