True KLRista. Nicely done.
First ride was great
BTW - Some KLR's burn oil, some do not. It doesn't matter if it's an 08 or 11. Nothing has been changed. Most of it has to do with the rpm's you're turning.
still fighting a lean ping problem but come hell or high-water I'm going to fix it this year.
Took 100 + mile spin today...........
Voldog, right there where you took that pic....was the gate closed where the road goes on up to lake Canasauga? And what about the road on to Murray's lake....was it open too?
That's it. Thanks.
I restuffed my old KLR seat with memory foam to make it comfy. Now I found a good used Corbin seat...I like em both. I restuffed the stock one with memory foam in all the right places. The Corbin is custom in between dished and flat. The Corbin of course is wider esp. the back half.
If anyone wants either one shoot me an offer. They are both used but both are in great shape and far more comfy than stock. If nobody wants the Corbin, I will restuff the middle with memory foam and keep it.
The stock seat pan is plastic with plastic mounting points and the cover is held with staples. The Corbin seat pan is fiberglass with metal mounting points and the cover is riveted on.
.. they are not easy to come by, but if you can hunt down a USMC take-off they are set up with approx. a 500lb progressive spring that works great for us big guys .. especially if you also add a set of 1" RAISING links to the rear end (the USMC shock is about 1/2" shorter than the stock KLR shock) ..
Yeap, both closed
68 closed too.....
Went back out to Mill Creek and old 2, peavine, big frog to copperhill back 5 to ellijay and home sweet home 201 miles 9am to 5 pm Had a blast ! Thanks Keith for the invite.
I fixed my center stand, or rather I cut the thing to pieces and welded it so that it actually works with the bike set at its stock height. When I bought the bike it was lowered 2 inches and the PO fitted it with a center stand that was designed for the lowered bike. I raised it back up to stock ride height last year and the center stand didnt work. Plus the design of the way it was supposed to be operated sucked, it had a small nub to push on, and there was no lever to help lift the bike with your foot. Taking a design cue from almost every other center stand I've ever seen in my life I redesigned it so that it actually works with some effort. Although I will admit that it actually took 3 attempts to get the lever fitted right.
Lowered height with centerstand down, notice the little nub sticking off the one side.
Centerstand assembly off the bike ready to be worked on
Finished product, legs slightly bent, elongated, and lever added, basically everything below the bend is almost new
and in the up position
Now I can actually lever the bike up on the center stand without tipping it over on the sidestand first. My only concern is if I need to put stronger springs on it it due to some added weight
hi all. i am Japanese living in Vietnam and Southern China for my business.
(pls accept my poor English )
i had placed an order two KLR650 with my friend to the shop in California last July.
KLRs were arrived at Saigon port in VN at the end of Aug,
The Custom procedure was so complicate here
because of many officially & unofficially issues.
Finally, all procedure was accomplished a few days ago in Jan,2012
(tax and other unofficially charges cost more then the cost of KLR)
i can be a KLR rider soon
(still need another 1 month to get registration plate)
i have to read this thread from 1 to the end.
