Orlando, FL February 2007 Doohickey Session?

Hi folks, I just joined and while I actually have both my Dak and my KLR for sale* , I would really like to get hold of the Doohickey tools and get together with some other KLR folks for a Doohickey session sometime soon...even if I don't have the KLR soon, I can't help but think Doohickey experience could be very valuable to me or a fellow rider sometime down the road.

Marty is the doo mister and he just happens to live close to Orlando. He has the tools and wisdom for such an encounter.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

I suppose a Great Dane is considered on the large end of the spectrum...we'll be getting together next weekend and I really look forward to the doo session. Thanks to the forum for the introduction.

I just wanted to post a thanks to the forum and to Marty whose generosity and experience was shared this past Saturday.

Marty has some awesome bikes and he is a wealth of information.

My KLR, which appears to be going to a new female rider, has 3291 miles on it and while the Doohickey was not broken, the spring was. And judging by engine noise, I think it was broken when I bought the bike at 2600 miles, so to those folks with 06 and 07 low-mile bikes, who think "it won't happen to me", GET THIS DONE. And to those with higher-mileage KLR's running OEM doohickys, you are ka-ray-zee not to change it out.

The OEM parts really are weak when compared the the retrofit parts from Arrowhead. The KLR now sounds like a Swiss sewing machine and I would take that bike to Argentina in a heartbeat now.

THANKS Marty!
