Just picked the next bike to restore. Im calling this Bike 4. I don't count mine and my buddies that Ive already completed. I found the easiest way is to see if the engine will attempt to crank and then go from there. I just replaced the drain plug with a magnetic low pro one from Eagle Mike, put in new oil, put in a new Deka sealed battery, replaced the fuses and then jumped the battery straight to the starter. I also found out Tiny Pic is shutting down. All of my pictures are hosted there so Im not sure if they will disappear or not. Either way this one is in rough shape.

The military thing is not my cup of tea, but I will say you do a nice job on them!

Thanks Tom. I've learned a ton from this forum. I've helped a buddy completely rebuild his 06 KLR.

I completely agree with Tom. What you are doing is pretty awesome, and the guy in me really thinks the idea of a diesel KLR is cool, but the regular KLRs are already a dog, and the diesel version is far worse. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy my 2005 and just did the 685 kit, so I am liking the additional responsiveness.

Keep up the great work and, most importantly, have fun.
