KLR650 Model

Hi guys,

I just bought myself a 2013 (2012 built) klr650, I'm picking it up this Thursday. I have a slight problem identifying what model it is for insurance purposes and was wondering if the forums could perhaps help me out. (I have searched and cannot find anything).

Insurance companies are asking if its an ECF or an EDF bike. I'm guessing one is a LAMS approved category? The bike is still at the previous owners place until Thursday but I wanted to get insurance sorted before I pick it up obviously. He can't seem to find anything on the bike itself indicating what model it is. Is there anywhere in particular I would be looking for this info?

Thanks in advance!

I would think they could get all the information they need with the VIN. ECF may mean California model but I am not sure.

Since there are no additional safety features like ABS, Traction Control, etc on KLR's I am not really sure what difference it would make for safety rating or value.

I beg to differ. The question was posted in the Aussy section. The nomenclature is not familiar to me in Canada so I couldn't help. Likely same situation for most of the folks who frequent here.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

from what i understand, this is the trim code, with the second letter designating the model year. Not really any actual "trim" options with the KLR

2011 is an EBF
2012 is an ECF
2013 is an EDF
2014 is an EEF

I was also asked when doing my insurance for a 2009 KLR.
Mine is an E9F, the 9 donating that it is a 2009 model. I'm assuming that when they reached double digit years, they changed to letters as described by a4twenty above
