Trying to find the First owner

I know this is a long shot, but. I am trying to find the original owner of my 1999 KLR. I got it from a guy that just mistreated the crap out of it. But he lived in Mcalla Ala. A bit south of Birmingham. I just want to find out what mods internal and external he did. I figure he had to get most of the ideas from here or that other forum, I hope. The guy i bought it from said the 1st owner was a Harley Mech in Birmingham, but that could be BS, since he wasnt honest about much else.

I would post a pic, but i dont think im able to yet.

So its the hunter green color, faded all to hell.

Take your bike to your friendly neighbourhood Kawaski dealership with your VIN clearly written down and ask the partsman or salesman to run the number thru the Kawasaki service history system to check for any possible 'never performed Recalls or warranty repairs' and politely ask if they could give you last recorded owner of the bike from the Kawasaki service history? They probably shouldn't now-a-days, but they might not care.

Then ask them to enter your NEW Owner information. Purchase something or give the person a tip.

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
