Welcome, and check out this group of posts. Seems like the 08's are having an issue with this, and it sounds like they've got a fix..

Thanks Paper. Gots lot to learn about this bike. Been years since having a ride like this. Just a tad different than the Goldwing !! Hope to meet up with others from the Colorado Springs area and get in on some rides maybe a tech day. Need to do the dohickey.

I'll keep you in mind.. I haven't camped at the KOA in Cripple Creek for a couple of years and I think my Wing needs to take a run to Colorado..

I'd love to ride the trails out there on the KLR, but there's that 1000 miles of bleah between me and the mountains.. I think I'll wander the UP of Michigan on the KLR instead, and save the ride to CO for something a bit more comfy..

Welcome

You will enjoy the KLR.... it's like a toy compared to the LEAD Wing.

I went from a Concours to a KLR.... for a couple days I thought I could jump tall buildings with a single bound..... "but that lines been taken already".

Have fun riding, enjoy the reading in the forum.
