08 break-in and Issues
Hi there everyone, I recently got an 08. Have 90 miles and I'm starting to think twice about the new KLR, due to all the issues that are popping up. For the first time my bike didn't start on the first crank with full choke, took 4 cranks, 2-3 seconds each crank.
I'm wondering if the bikes with the starting and stalling troubles could be from improper break-in periods.
Except of course the melted wiring harness under the gas tank problem.
It runs fine with RPM's around 1300 in town and 1500 depending on the weather, but when I get off the freeway and come to a light its humming at 1500. I went to the dealer because I felt it was to high but he said that's about right.
Proper break in is under 4000 rpm for 600 miles, right?
How about the oil consumption?
Also, could someone please post a picture of the doohicky, I have no clue what that is on the bike.
