As I was perusing the service manual the other day (yes, I actually read service manuals just for fun) I noticed that the Australia variant appears to have a liquid heated or cooled carburetor. At least that is what the cooling system diagram seems to show. And I went and looked at my KLR and, sure enough, the water pump housing casting has the boss where the Australian model has the port for the hose to the carburetor. What I didn’t see was what the carburetor looks like to see where the water goes on the other end.
Tom, Paul, anyone familiar with this variant? Do you know if the intent was to more quickly heat a cold carburetor or to cool a hot carb to prevent vapor lock?
Just a curiosity...
