New KLR owner asks self, “Have I made a huge mistake?”
Just invested $3 grand on a 2001 KLR 650 with just 15,00 miles on it. Jeez! It didn’t look so big in the ‘Rumble-on’ website pics! Size isn’t the problem, tho, both feet fit comfortably flat on the ground. Had my new baby thoroughly inspected- mechanic said ‘it’s a great little bike!’ Engine very strong and responsive. Buuuut, I seem to have big transmission problems, namely, I have no 1st gear and neutral disappears when the bike is a bit above- normal running temp. Wondering, mechanical defect or operator (me) error? Anybody have ideas to share? Or have had similar issues with their KLR?
