I just got an 04 KLR 650 with 9000 miles today, traded my 82 goldwing for it. Rode 106 miles getting it home, exactly half of that on dirt road. Had a ball. I work on motorcycles as a hobby so doing any of the mods or fixing anything doesn't scare me. I don't think the doohickey has been done so that will be my first project on it. Too bad there is no way to tell if it has already been done short of tearing into it, the PO was the second owner and didn't know. I have been reading the forum and most of my questions have been answered and a read of the owners manual should clear up any other questions I have.
