not as ready as i'd like to be.

i'm still gathering parts to fix my klr. patience is saving me big $$. i scored some parts on ebay for $30 that would have cost me over $300 new. i'll start gathering new bearings next, then gaskets. klr650.com is looking into sourcing an aftermarket complete gasket set for me. a guy on ebay sells them ,but gouges big time on shipping.

Clutch is way good. So are my valves.

Haven't been on the forums in a long time. Good stuff.
