    I just check the klr s on Craigslist near me. Quite a few. Price you were quoted seems ok. Ones I saw for that $ had 18-25k miles. Worth’s look

    You may want to get into the cluster and check to make sure one of the gear teeth isn't broken or disengaged for whatever reason. Here is a vid on how to remove the cluster.



    and here is a picture of the worm gear that may be the culprit (pic borrowed from inmate klm4755)

    It likely just came unscrewed from the instrument panel/Speedo. You can reach under and re-connect it. Easy peasy.

    So I assume you have checked both ends of the speedo cable drive. Did this occur shortly after a front wheel removal? Check the connection (s) on both speedo and front wheel. To be safe remove the wheel end and inspect for a broken or worn drive end. If all fails then you will have to resort to do basic dead reckoning. Time x estimated speed = estimated miles. Maybe time to get a GPS?
    You might want to consider ordering up one of the Vapor products. I have even used a basic Bicycle computer on my GS.

    Around that over there.
    Anyone know which model Pro Taper bars are closest to stock or maybe a few mm taller which will bolt right on the KLR? Or any favorites? I might do bar risers later, but for now im good with stock. I'm about 6'3"

    The Pro Taper SE ATV High model is a very close replacement to the stock bar.

    Hey folks, a friend of mine is in a bind and needs a KLR 650 head or engine, or needs his head repaired, if anybody has anything for sale or knows anybody.
    The bike used to be mine, is a 2008 oil burner, just trying to save the thing.\
    Thanks. PM works fine if you can help, I check it everyday.

    Just put the ATV High on my 14 KLR and love it. Mine are 1-1/8 so had to use adapters (risers is what I used).

    Check with Eagle Mike who may have either or both items you need. He has in the past.

    This wasn’t the case, had the gauge cluster off. Cleaned everything up, made sure everything was connected and put back on. Will see tomorrow morning when I head South if it works or not.

    Yes checked the speedo cable. Looks good on both ends. Occurred over 5,000km after my front and rear tire change. I have a GPS and also have MapsMe and REVER to keep track of distance / time / speed.
