The thing is even an old one can be taken apart and refurbished very easily and since it shares the engine and other parts with the EX500 ninja there is no shortage of parts. This guy from a KLE riders group in Spain did a great job modifying this for the dirt and also says 192kg with the full tank that is not the ideal but also not too bad. Obviously, swapping the rear boat anchor, also known as the factory muffler, is a must. you see them prepared all over the place doing adventure including the typical and also pretty challenging terrain. Like those guys say it takes them around the world w/o any hiccups.
