    I'm constantly impressed with how clean my KLR is. It's an '07 with a little over 4700 miles.

    Small spot of rust on the exhaust, but that is it:

    Interseats Ltd is the OEM seat maker:

    Possibly factory paint marks? No idea where else they could have come from:

    Nice that looks like the outskirts of Kendrick Park. I wish so bad I could find a damn job and move back.

    My '15 has the very same paint marks.
    I wonder who's the lucky guy at the KLR factory that gets to tag all those bikes?

    Exactly right, Saddle Mountain, just north of Kendrick Park.

    Hey guys. I need your experienced brains to help solve my dilemma. I took time out today to install Eagle Mike's KLX jet kit. I followed his instructions and the install, I thought went smoothly. I drilled out the plug on the capped air-fuel mixture screw and found it was completely screwed closed!? I unscrewed it EM's prescribed 2 full turns. After that I installed his petcock replacement (Yamaha version). I notched the solenoid cover to accommodate the fuel line. After it was back together I started it. It started better than (quicker) than it ever did. But it won't rev above 2000 rpm now. I went to move it and it doesn't have enough power to move without dying.
    Thoughts before I tear it all apart. I thought I was meticulous with replacing the diaphragm in it's grove. ..sorry this is a 2015 with 4450 miles on it. KLR650, that is.

    Now the fun begins! I'm going to clean up/replace/upgrade what I can underneath, and repaint all the fairings and the engine guards. I've got a taller windshield on order, and found a nice used Kappa top box. Hopefully I can find some original replacement decals.

    Agree, I wouldn’t paint it or worry about decals. That Gen 1 looks really good.
