My 2008 KLR 650 with 32k miles had the pleasure of experiencing Rod Knock because of lack of oil. I haven't looked into the engine yet but its so messed up inside that the engine wont even turn over anymore. Now my question is what do? I am not a mechanic but like to work on the bike and am quite handy. Shall I buy a new engine an swap the whole thing? The engine alone would costs USD 1000 (1500 CAD up here). Is it worth it? Is it viable for a non mechanic? How long a job would it be for me? I have an apartment complex garage and would have to rent power tools if more than a drill is required. I have most other hand tools. Getting it professionally repaired would cost USD 1600 in labor alone according to a mechanic who heard the story. Or should I just buy a new bike (second hand that is) and sell this one for parts? A new one (used) would also cost x2.5 the cost of a new engine.
