Hello from Ontario Canada

Just wanted to say hello. Been lurking for a bit til I purchased a 2008 KLR650. The bike is in poor shape but I'm going to show it some love. It does not have the thermo-bob nor does it have the doo-hickey spring update. I'm not sure if it's an "oil burner" nor do I know if any of the recall work was done. I'll know more as I take it apart.

It has 38000 kms, sounds like the PO tried to look after it...but did a poor job.

Anyway, when I've posted enough I will attach some pics.
Cheers everyone.
