Okay, heres the situation. A noob buddy is on leg #1 of his ride from Prudhoe to Tierra Del Fuego. He is on his way down now and stranded in Stewart, BC with a broke down KLR and doesnt know what to do. He said he had just filled up about 60 miles previously, he was cruising about 60 mph or so, it sputtered, then it died. It wouldnt even turn over, and he said the lights wouldnt even come on. No horn, no flashers, nothing. Questions I asked: 1. Was it bad gas? No. Twas running just dandy and then just stopped. Wont even sputter to a start. Dead dead dead. 2. Did you check the fuses? No. But then again this doesnt explain why it would quit while it was running. 3. Did you try to jump the battery? Yes. Nada. 4. Did you try to push start the bike? No. This is an 09 KLR with 6500 miles on it. The valves were checked before this trip, fresh oil, filters, and a new battery installed. Hes calling me back in a bit after he gets the bike hauled into Stewart (population 300ish). Hes in a hotel tonight and will try to get the bike going in the am. Any advice for him I could pass along?
