2009 running rough/ jerky
What a great site this is, and I know I'll be here often. I have a new, 2009 KLR and I've got a problem that maybe you can help with.
I got my bike last fall... brand new, and now have 500 miles under her. I've noticed in these last 100 or so miles that she is running "jerky", at slower speeds in 3rd and 4th gear. Kinda like the gas is not flowing smoothly? Any ideas on what the problem might be?
Some background on me so you know what you're dealing with :-) I'm brand new to biking, and this KLR is my first, and only bike. So I have no experience in wrenching around at all, nor do I have anything to compair any problems to. I live in a tiny and remote town in SE Alaska, and the nearest Kawi dealer is 1000 miles away, (I bought my bike from a dealer in Seattle, and had it barged up to me in Alaska). So I can't just take it down the street to the dealer to check out. I'm on my own here, with very little, to no experience... so help! ;-)
Many thanks for any ideas,
