Rebuilding a Pile of Junk KLR 650

My son and i just splurged $200 on a 2003 KLR 650 and as you might guess we got our moneys worth. It runs but that is it! I need to know where to look for all parts especially body parts. Dont even know where to turn can someone give us a hand and point us in the right direction?

$200 and it runs? I'd say you got a deal.

I might start looking on eBay. [Someone will be along shortly to provide the name of the vendor I cannot think of for the life of me.]

First thing - a Clymer manual. Shows where everything goes and the name of the part.

Take a look at www.bikebandit.com for OEM parts. Check prices there before buying on ebay. Sometimes used parts go for rediculous prices on ebay.

BikeBandit also has good schematics for the KLR. You'll have to link several times as to make, model, etc but they are very helpful.

I've found that BB's prices are a little below dealers (the one here, anyway) but by the time you figure shipping, it might be cheaper to buy a less expensive part from the local guy.

Use your imagination and make yourself a unique rat bike.
