KLR Android App

I have recently re-purchased my old XR650L, and it got me in the mood to update the android app thats on the google play store and the amazon app store! While I was at it I also overhauled the KLR one and I have a few more coming out in the coming weeks (DR650, DRZ400, WR250R, CRF250L) I also decided to just make the app free and added some content and features. I'm interested in any feedback you guys have, I'd like this to be a nice valuable resource for anyone just doing standard maintenance on their bike. This new version is a lot easier to update compared to the old one! Any comments you guys have will likely make it into the other apps as well!

And for you iOS folks, I can't do a proper iOS app due to the cost of putting apps in the iOS Store, but you can bookmark the following page, It's not ideal as you have to have an internet connection to view it, but all of the information is there with the notes section disabled.

unfortunately I can't post links due to not having enough posts

I've just downloaded the application. It's good to have that information on my smart phone. Good one. Information is power.

The man on top of the mountain didn’t fall there.

I just checked the apps Engine Oil Drain Plug Torque, 21.4 Foot Pounds!

That is from the early 2008 & up Gen2 Service Manual. And is 30% TOO HIGH of torque! And has resulted in many stripped oil drain holes.

Confirm you have the gasket installed on the drain plug.
Then proper oil drain plug Torque is 14-16 ft lbs or 168-192 Inch lbs, preferable to use an Inch Pound torque wrench for better accuracy.

Or to put it into prospective, Just Snug on a Short wrench!

I just installed the app.. If I click the links to products I get an error that "There was an issue loading the app".

I have the amazon app installed, if that is what it is looking for. Are the links specific to amazon.com (US), or other locales?

Thanks for another great resource!
