I have no personal experience with any failed crankshaft main bearings or bottom rod bearing on any KLR in my area. But most Wyoming, USA riders are not high mileage riders in general.
I have only seen pics of a couple failed LH crank roller bearings on the forums & facebook. And seeing more and more reports of 150,000 / 200,000 and even one 250,000 + mile KLR engines still in service.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 84,000+ miles & counting
