Spent some time looking for this before I posted. But...
I have a 2017 KLR650, 2,000 miles. Recent oil change, put in 5-30w oil and check level frequently.
I was driving to base today and as I pulled up to the gate shack, I noticed a definite "knocking" from my engine. I limped up to my work building and then had a tow truck come out and pick it up. Put octane boost in tank, mixed it up, but tow truck driver, who is an avid biker, said problem didn't sound like low octane gas, but some sort of physical issue with engine.
I do not over-rev, hop on it, or anything like that. I am a reserved driver. Any ideas?
