Just done a barter deal for some work in exchange for a 2008 or 2009 KLR 650 with 32k km on the dial. The motor needs at the very least a top end rebuild if I can't find a replacement engine. Very little oil and water isn't good in an Australian summer. Having trouble locating a replacement motor at any bike wreckers around Australia right now. If there are any Aussie members on the forum and know either of a good second hand motor that is available or a reliable bike mechanic that does engine rebuilds around the Sydney/Parramatta area I would be very interested to know and approximate cost $.
Anyway the bike will end up being my sons if it gets going but it won't be keeping it's standard adventurer style. More likely a conversion to flat track road legal style is his thinking.
Thanks and look forward to reading the forum posts.
