    I just installed Renthal handlebars on my 2009 KLR650. I have the handlebars and the weights if you are interested. You can pick them up for free or pay postage.

    Eric Nolan is a super dude. He needs all the support he can get plus makes a great product. His son is even cooler than his father.
    :D

    He just called me and I ordered one. It’s what I’ve been wanting for quite awhile. I bought a 2009 KLR650 about 2 months ago and I’ve been slowly buying and installing parts. I’ll be mainly using this for recreational road riding and long distance. After the windshield setup I’ll be getting an EM forkbrace to mount my UFO low fender. I have numerous RamMount accessories that I have to sort out to see what I’ll be putting on the KLR650. I’m loving this bike. This is a great addition to my CRF250L that is also set up the same way.

    No. The ad was, IMO, a scam. I tried contacting twice in two different ways with no response. Thanks for asking.

    When I ran out of gas on my way home from the dealership, my buddy picked me up and we went to the gas station. The cheapest gas can they had was a 2 gallon for $25.

    I saw there was trash strewn across an empty lot behind the gas station.

    2 minutes of searching turned up an intact gallon water jug (with lid!) that was empty and bone dry. It held 1.2 gallons of gas and was more than enough to get me to the gas station.

    Probably illegal, but eh. No one died and I safely made it to the gas station.

    Trying to sell my bike. Get a couple bites and they want to see the bike the next day.

    Go to start it up myself just to give it a once over. The electrical system dies and I see a wisp of smoke.

    Three hours later I found the wires to the turn signal relay shorted to the frame.

    Future reference, if you run out of gas while on reserve there is at least another 9 miles of fuel available. Side stand down rotate the bike up on the side stand and rear tire. Tilt up till the remaining full on the bottom right side of the tank flows to the left side. Put the bike back down, restart and head for gas station.

    My son has an 05 Klr, put some kind of an aftermarket thermostat bypass. Now his eng temp is right in the middle all the time and his oil burning is almost nothing. I'm talking even on rides not much above freezing. ( it's a Canadian thing we do ).

    He probably installed a Thermo-Bob or something very similar.

    Anyone know what kind of handguards I could find similar to these ?

    Those and my bars were trashed. I put in pro taper ATV high se bars but most hanguards I'm finding are shorter around. I really liked the bigger cup feeling especially in cold & wet riding. Any ideas?

    Hard to tell, but my guess is those are Barkbuster brand handguards. Maybe the Storms?

    I got my wife to do a breakfast run this morning (~50 miles). First time to have anyone on the back of the KLR and I was impressed with how well it did. :D
