Hopping in to the Community!
I'm Nick Cornell from Indiana Pennsylvania. I'm an Environmental, Health and Safety major at IUP.
I have a decent backround in riding, mostly an old CR in the dirt. Currently I have been commuting on my dad's DR650 and have been bit by the dual sport bug.
Saturday I will be picking up my first dual sport. A 2007 KLR 650 with just over 11,000 miles on it.
PREPARE FOR NOOB QUESTIONS:
Anything major I should look for when picking it up?
Does a slip on muffler REQUIRE a carb jetting on these bikes?
Whats the average MPG while cruising at 55 on the road with 50/50 tires?
What Oil do most of you use?
I can't not tinker with things, so I plan to paint the old plastics. I've heard pretty good things from Krylon Fusion, any input would be awesome.
