Just buying 1st KLR, 1998 Model
I'm buying a friends 98 KLR with approx. 4000 miles on it. I needed a bike to ride while I rebuild my 1970 750 Bonneville. It has a supertrapp exhaust and street tires. Hasn't run for a year...just sitting. I'm told it needs the carbs flushed and a new battery. I want a gel battery, any suggestions? Oh also need a clutch cable.
Anyway I'm really looking forward to owning this bike. I rode a brand new one 2 years ago in MN and was amazed at how it handles on gravel roads which I love to ride on. I'm really excited about this purchase...and I'm getting a friend deal. $1100.
I'll need to change all fluids. New tires after I ride it a bit. Any suggestions on what to look for and what to pay special attention to?
Thanks and looking forward to some fun times. I'm 55 YO and miss off roading.
