Coming from EFI, What to Expect with KLR?
Hello, I'm new to the forum. I currently own a 2016 Honda Africa Twin. I really like the bike, but with all the farkles on it, probably weighs nearly 600 lbs. Sometimes that's a handful to deal with. I'd like to get a second bike that's a little lighter and was considering a 2015-2017 KLR650.
I rode a 2015 yesterday and I liked it. But coming from the Africa Twin, I'm used to fuel injection and the zero maintenance that it requires. I'm wondering, what am I in store for if I were to get a KLR650 with a carb?
Since I'm in Texas and can just about ride year round, I plan to ride the bike once a week or so and fill up where ever I happen to be. Is that enough to keep carb issues away? Or will I need to do more work than that with it?
I really like the KLR in principle, but I don't really want to buy into a model that is going to require me to be working on it regularly to keep it running.
What are your thoughts?
