back on a klr

hooray,I finally got a klr.i brought a 07' red and grey one.

I think I got a pretty good deal on? it had 4400 miles on plus the doo
was done on it.I got for $2500 here it Georgia,I live in Atlanta but I had to go
n.georgia to get it.I've been riding it since I got on 5/19/13 and it rides good.
I need to know where to get the oil filters,which kind are good?and what oil is good?the guy I brought it from said he used synthetic oil should I continue
to use that?any helpful things you guys can help me with will be very appreciated.

you dont NEED to use synthetic in your bike, as for filters that can be a matter of opinion. there should be a kawasaki shop around you someplace to get filters and tubes and such. i usually run 10-30 in mine until around this time of year when it gets into the 90+ temp range then i switch it to 15-40.

I use Rotella. And Hi-Flo filters. Good and cheap. Like the KLR.
