    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.

    Hey everyone,

    Looking at picking up a KLR 650 for my 18 year old son to ride with me. Is $6199+ tax considered a decent deal for a new 2018 model that is leftover?

    Thats the new 'stealth' spark plug. Package states guaranteed more HP, better MPG, lighter weight and oh so cool looking.

    No service history on the '07 at the MC dealer, other than the service work they did to it to prep it for sale, which consisted of an oil change, cleaning the air filter, and a clean/lube/adjustment of the chain. They got it as a trade in from a service member who wanted a new KTM.

    If the stars align, I'll be able to go look at it on Wednesday or Thursday of next week.

    You might get lucky, but unfortunately they most likely can't get them. The parts houses always say they can ship them in a few days but their supplier probably wont have them. That seems to be the case when gen 1 owners are out looking for brand new oem shrouds. It's worth a shot to order, just wanted to let you know that they'll probably email you back after a week saying they can't get them.

    No idea about the cowling, maybe they still do have some of those in warehouses somewhere.

    Hemisphere offroad sells gen 1 aftermarket body stuff and I've heard it's good stuff. But it's $$$

    Need some advice. 2018 KLR, bought brand new, no mods. Now at 9k miles.

    I'm in the midst of a road trip. 1k miles already done with no problems.

    20 miles or so after the last fuel up, I start getting some severe hesitation. Mostly in third gear and up and between 4 and 5k RPM. 1st and second up to 2 or 3k seem fine.

    It feels as though I'm hitting the reserve and the engine isn't getting enough fuel.

    I'm thinking clogged jet. I put in some seabreeze and that seemed to help with the more severe hesitations so far (only 20 something miles)

    Anything else I should be checking on/roadside repair before I call the road trip cancelled?
