Need a Little Help!

I'm new to the Forum and need a little help with my KLR. I have an 05 (which I bought new) with over 6000 miles on it. I was at Deal"s Gap talkng to some riders about their KLR's and we got talking about the Doohicky. I've never heard of such a thing, so they proceded to tell me how I should be looking into changing it as soon as possible. I found your Forum through a friend of my daughters who lives in Colorado Springs. To make this short, I figure that the best way to get the parts is to ask the guys who have done this. Where is the best place to get the parts and, What all I need. Thanks

Do the Doo!

Eagle Mike sells the parts as well as through several vendors I believe. Moab is one... I ordered mine through them. It comes with the replacement spring as well. Brain dead at the moment for the website..... somebody will kick in here any minute tho!

Yep, what he said! Arrowhead.... Fred is the man.

Hey, thanks, plan on ordering the parts as soon as possible. Got about 20 ins. of snow on the ground, so got a little time to get everything done that I want before it warms up. Thanks again for the help.

Call Eagle mIKE @ 619-261-1281, HE MAKES THE new AND improved doo. He can fix you up. He also will give tech support via Phone. I'm in SE KY about 125 mile north of deals gap and I would help if you need help.

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

I've been though there on highway 24 numerous times.
If you don't get the doo done until later in the spring, I may be able to run down to help.
Of course, it'll take you less time to do the doo than it would for me to just ride down to you. :lol:

Print all the procedures and take your time. I also have the wrench and puller if you need to borrow them, and a Clymer manual, also.. Let me know. :mrgreen:

Hey thanks for the offer. I already turned a puller out on the lathe, its just about like the old TZ Yamaha's. Infact its the same thread. I do think I'll try the torsion spring though.
