Post Buying an 1990 KLR. Good idea or bad?

Hi Everyone,
I joined this forum to have the best advice on these motorcycle. I sold my SV1000 2 years ago and i have been regretting it since. I am now back in my hometown (Val-d'Or, Canada) and i have a close to unexisting budget thanks to 3 weeks trip in New-Zealand and Australia. No regrets.

I have seen 2 KLR 650 in the classified (2000 and 2003) for 1000$. I would like to know if is a deal or just a bad idea. How much km would be too much and what problems to look for before buying. I feel the end of the season is coming and people will sell for less.

Thanks in advance for your opinions!

Condition, vs. age and/or mileage, is key for the bikes you're considering, IMHO.

No idea what the market is for used KLR650s in your area. Prices sound good for hereabouts.

My riding partner has 55,000 MILES on his KLR650; runs like the wind!

No one could ever give you a good answer on if you should buy them or not without seing them. That's your decision. Just give them a good look over, take a flashlight and a notepad. write everthing it needs down. Ask questions. Take all the time you need. remember your's the one that needs to be happy.
