Mark, oh Mark!
Are you the Mark who posted this info on your website?
Mark's KLR650 Website - Brake Pads Replacement
If so, you may have SAVED MY LIFE todaY! (At least, you insured my Generation 1 KLR 650 will pass state safety inspection!)
My brake pads were non-compliant (as in, GONE); I went to the trusty Internet for "how-to" perform the task, but . . . the entries (including video clips) addressed Generation 2 bikes--much of the information was N/A (not applicable) to my faithful Generation 1 steed.
After being essentially stumped in attempting DIY initially, I came across the link posted above. I printed the procedure out (19 pages), relishing the lucid instructions in the text, and the detailed color diagrams and pictures. For me, victory, at least Virginia DMV safety certification, made possible by your generously-shared know-how and experience. I wondered, HOW MANY others have been rescued from dark despair by your enlightening dissemination of KLR lore, do's and don't's? Their number is legion, surely.
Thanks for your purposeful utilization of the media available through the years, the best aspect of the platforms available.
Understand your website has moved to: http://www.klr650.marknet.us/
(Unsure of the operational status of the website at the moment; hope it's running, or at least, "Coming soon!"
Again, thank you for your contribution to my safe and legal riding, a result of your sharing KLR650 maintenance information. Appreciate the access to KLR650 info now, and into the future.
