I replaced mine on the 05 with around 6 or 7000 miles and my spring wasn't broke,just looked like it was way to long to do any good.It sure is a nice feeling not to have to worry about it thou

I hope you got all the spring pieces out of there. If not they might be in the oil screen under the right side case.

Right now, I know mine is working on my 2004 because I adjusted it at the last oil change and the engine smoothed out noticeably.

After replacing my doohickey, myself and another KLR guy noticed a difference in vibration in my KLR compared to before the new DOO, so even if it ain't broke, FIX IT!!!
