Here's the question of the day..........
This is on my '09 650
Just broke 1300 miles yesterday on trhe first "real" ride of 2011.
I bought it new last Sept, (this will be my 3rd KLR, they are such a good "all @ bike), brought it home, and before it had 100 miles I did the;
1. 22 cent mod (2-#4 washers, 3-1" holes, 1 step bigger main, air screw out 2 1/2 turns slide drilled with the 7/32?? drill), tossed the snorkel, filled the holes with filter foam
3. Thermo Bob kit
4. Cee-Bailey touring windshield
5. Chopped 1" off the kick stand
6. Battery Tender plug
At 1000 miles I threw on a Lexx muffler, (sounds pretty good, barky, but not loud)
Yesterday I went for ride, (I don't take this off road, my KTM and Gas-Gas trial bikes are for that), this is my "@ town bike, shrt trip bike, my commute bike.
Now, it had the "storage gas" in it with the "Stay-bil" in it, some dry gas, carb cleaner, so it not supposed to run great!
It did run, well like a KLR, didn't skip a beat.
I'd like to get a bit better throttle response out of it.
I asked my dealer when I got it if he'd get me a KLX needle and looked at me like I was from Mars!
Does anyone have THAT part number to help me out???
Would a JD kit, (I've used them with great success on my KTM's) help the response???
I'm thinking of dropping in a larger pilot to help that bottom power out, (everyonce in a while if I "blip" the throttle at a light, it'll stall- it's gotta be lean)
KLX needle and .22 or J.D. to help the response??
The bike is running great! I think I better tinker with it!
