New to KLRs and Forum

I'm new to KLRs. I have read and heard about them all my years. I have owned ALL kinds/brands of scooters over my 45 years...and between my kids and I, have riden everything from Ariels to Zundaps...but I guess I have heard more scuttle-butt about KLRs and the "Doohickey" than anything else.

What is the REAL story?

I have just purchessed a 2007 KLR 650 with 2200 miles on it. As far as I know it is all stock. I have read that the problem is more present in the late models.
Is this something I should proactivley address or just deal with it when I have nothing else to spend my hard earned money on?

Get the Eagle Mike Doo. You can purchase the kit through Arrowhead Motorsports. Fred will take good care of you.
