KLR for regular 120 mile commute
I have a 2009 KLR with 23,000+ miles on it. I bought it a couple years ago with 17,000 from a dealer. All I've done to it since I've had it is change the oil twice, I just did it the second time a 150 miles ago with synthetic. New tires installed at a shop and it had to have a wire repaired in the main harness that was causing fuses to blow which was done at shop also.
I don't know what the previous may have done, but they did install crash bars, center stand (I don't think it comes with one stock) heated grips, adjustable handlebars, possibly jetted the carb (I say this because there was a jetting kit that came with the bike in its rear bag, and I think that's all I am aware of.
The reason for my post is I am going to be starting a job that is a little over 60 miles away, and I will probably use the KLR vs my F150 to commute for fuel cost reasons. For those familiar with the area, I'm going to be going from OC area to Camp Pendleton and back using the freeways, so traffic allowing, my top cruising speed is to be 70mph +/- 3mph. I know it burns oil at those speeds so I must keep an eye on that, I've done a poor job of that so far and both times I've changed the oil, I was way low, very irresponsible of me, now I will keep oil with the bike at all times.
I am curious as to should I be concerned about doing any other things preventatively before I start making the commute? This is my first bike, and while I'm not a mechanic, I don't mind trying to do things myself, especially with youtube and forums such as this that are full of knowledgeable people willing to give advice.
Thanks for any advice and suggestions.
