Good morning lads and ladettes, I just bought my first duel sport (had plenty of sportbikes and sport-tourers) and have done several long-range travels on them (on asphalt) and with cars (every type of ground found on the face of the earth) around the world. And I happily just bought my first Kawasaki 1994 KLX 650 C with 30k km on the clock, that I planned to rig to travel from the UK/Norway to Mongolia and roam a bit around in the Pamir highway. What appealed to me with the bike was the steel perimeter frame and steel swingarm long suspension etc (and the HORRIBLE seat!). But after trying to find the few alive treads on the internett I turn less optimistic about my choice. This is due to some say the top can explode without warning and it has heating problems (Even though it has two radiators). So my questions come up: Is this bike doomed to failure, should I get rid of it and buy something else? Does anyone have long-range travel experience with this bike? What should I upgrade on the bike (I'm above average mechanical and have done complete engine rebuilds, motorcycle refurbishes etc) (I've already managed to acquire the mythical larger Acerbris tank for the bike) I just want to hear some updated opinions before I pour my money into the bike. Thanks for the help!
