adjusting the doo

I have NOT changed the doo yet. 2006 2200 miles. Do I dare adjust it? Does it need adjusting at certian mileage? I'm a bit chicken to change it out myself. Are there going to be any doodays in the midwest?

You normally adjust it with each oil change. If you have doubts, just don't adjust it. More than likely you'll be fine for awhile, but eventually you will have to get in there and check it out and change it. If you were closer we could have it done for you in about an hour and half. It really isn't the big of a deal. Patience, and the correct tools and the ability to follow instructions precisely is all that is needed to change out the doo. I know for a fact Eagle Mike will walk you thru it on the phone if need be. He is THE MAN!

Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

yes, do the doo as soon as posable, i finaly got the time to do mine and wish i had done is sooner. mine was broken and only the spring was holding, from the looks it had ben broken for a good while, only 15k on this motor. i was lucky, all the broken parts were easy to fish out. so take the time do do tour doo, and good luck.
