Hello from ATL
I received my KLR today - I bought it off eBay from a seller in Florida who drove it up and gave me an introduction to it. It's totally set up how I would set it up - aftermarket suspension, bags, bars, plates, accessory plug, and center stand. I'm totally loving it.
I took it to the dealership and had new oil, filters, cable lube and adjustments done.
Afterwards, I drove it around town, but on my way home this evening, I switched the high beam switch and both headlights stopped working. The seller told me the same thing happened to him once so I knew it was the fuse.
Racing against darkness, I drove to Pep Boys, bought tools and fuses, and replaced the burnt out fuse with a 20A instead of a 15A fuse. I drove it another 10 minutes and switched into high beam, and poof...went out. I replaced it again but this time, I started the bike in High beam on (with the idea being that I'd just keep it there). It worked for about 30 minutes, but as I was almost home, I was coasting down my street in neutral. I didn't touch anything, and poof! The headlight went out.
There's lots of discussions about this, but this is a 2011 bike. Should I consider replacing the wiring harness? Is it a DIY kind of thing, or should I just pay the dealer to fix this? I'd welcome some advice. I'll post this to the forum too.
