I should start off by thanking everyone for the plethora of info I've already gathered from all your posts. I just got a 2001 KLR and have no clue about it's history or any of the potential things that might/will go wrong with it. I'm doing my best to piece together all the stuff I need to do to get her nice an reliable... well, by reliable I mean able to ride and now physically blow up. It actually runs great but I'm sure I can expect nothing but problems and fun times ahead fixing my new friend. That's about it... I'll post all my questions and be forever grateful for all your help.
I live in southern California, North Orange County to be exact. I don't have any real motorcycle experience other than being able to ride one. I have no clue where any good trails are but I can't wait to find out.
From what i know so far my bike is:
2001 KLR 650 Green
Good condition mostly street/commute miles
aprox 41k on the odometer
Rebuilt engine (not sure of the specifics yet but i have the ppwk)
Not much oil in the engine
(it runs fine just needs an oil change)
No doo done
Replaced crappy grips/warmers that are falling off
but most importantly MY NAME ON THE TITLE...
I'm in the process of doing the basics to get her as reliable and safe as I can. Thanks for reading folks, talk to you soon and I can't wait to bother you all with my silly questions!
