A couple of maintenance questions...
Just got back from a short trip, and have some questions about 10,000 mile miantenance..
Issue 1: I notice a lack in power from the KLR recently. To describe it I will use an example..Going up a moderate hill in 5th gear, let it drop to about 50 mph, around 3500 rpm, then try to accelerate it really dogs out and get the snare drum tappety tap sound. Perhaps I should just down shift, but I think the engine should be able to pull out of that situation better. Valves? Thoughts?
Issue 2: After not using the clutch for a few miles, the initial pull on it feels like its stuck then it releases, wont do it for the next immediate pull, but will after a little while on the first pull again. Is this a sign that the clutch cable is going bad or something else?
Thanks much for your replies.
The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder,
Where the fair wind blows.
