Ok, so the BIG news is that these (2009) KLR's are drinking oil like a drunk payday night!
It appears as though the rings are not sealing at all times, (seems more when you ride the machine hard and put it away wet)!
I got like 300 miles on mine and before it gets to sucking
I wanna fix it
The dohickey was the first thing, the the 22 cent fix and a few air box holes, now the oil.
I don't wanna go bigger bore.
I'm not intrested going hog wild, big bore, louder exhaust, different carbs, etc.
I just want close to the same oil amount out as installed on a oil change
I'm happy with the way the bike runs with the 22 cent mod.
Screw it, I'll SAY the motor is using a qt every 300 miles to get the dealer to do the labor, but I'll buy the piston-ie.
I've look a bit here and there, but for some reason, no stock bore pistons.
Anyone out there in KLR land repalce your piston?????
If it's not one thing it's another, why can't they biuld a bike you DON'T have to work on or modify?????
