New Boy in UK

Hi' all Iv'e just purchased a 2000 KLR 650 c5

I live in the UK up in Northumberland.
I own a Motorcycle Tire and classic bike shop.
I also own a 2011 Yamaha XT1200 super ten

I wanted a winter ride and a bit more off road, the KLR has only 6000 miles on it and is in good condition.

Are there any faults with these bikes I may need to know about??

Welcome aboard Big Bill. At least you should be able to get a good deal on tires.

Are there any faults with these bikes I may need to know about??

Do a search on here or Google for: Doohickey, oil screen, rear suspension lubrication.

Not to scare you. The KLR is a bullet proof bike. Nice to get an older model with so little mileage. These are just some maintenance issues that if you look after them you will have a great bike for a long time.
