New KLR owner in Michigan

I just picked up a 2009 KLR 650. I have ridden for 16 years but this is my first dual sport. I can't wait to take it out on some of our back roads and two tracks.

Check your engine oil, with the bike balanced straight up, before every ride and after every gas stop. Some use next to nothing.
Some use a LOT!

Cylinder head Exhaust camshaft bearings are the 1st to fail, because they are at the very end of the line. Very Expensive to repair!

And Welcome to the Forum!

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!

Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
