Saying hi!

Just posting my intro.. I've got a 06 KLR650. I've had it for about four years now, two of which it didn't see much action other than a long distance commuter for me (2.5hours each way to work for six months). The previous owner started the process of adding all the accessories and i've kept it going pretty well.. Only problem is I have no idea what he has done internally other than a few things he mentioned during the sale, I've found a bunch of other stuff he didn't mention since then. But regardless here is my short list of farkles

Tall-Wide touring windscreen
Front engine guard with hwy pegs
IMS shifter
vib dampners in the mirrors and bar ends
subframe upgrade
offroad foot pegs
bar risers
cool little chrome clock on the handlebar
corbin dished seat
jardine RT4 exhaust
dynojet stage 2 jet
K&N air filter
snitz 685 kit
rear travel case with led brake light
oversized cargo rack with extra loops welded on for camping gear
throttle lock
Ram mount with gps cradle
12v outlet for charging cell/gps/flashlight etc..
Krylon red paint (cover up my faded pink plastics)
supermoto front fender
and now running Kenda 270's front and rear
home made pvc tool tube mounted to my engine guard
and i routinely load it up with EXL expandable soft panniers and a tankbag

I've put over 1000km's on my bike in a day before and just love this machine.. I've got more stuff in the works but still trying to see if some stuff has been done like the doo and the .22 cent carb mod. i ordered a complete doo kit regardless and plan on putting it in in a few weeks.

Welcome, If the idle mixture screw plug has been removed the .22 mod may have been done. When you get to the doo, if it's been done you would have no trouble reselling kit. Ride safe.
