Soon to be New KLR Owner

I've been riding 2 wheels since I was 10, but now going to look at a lightly used 2009 KLR 650 today! Any points I should look for? I am more familiar with Kawasaki street bikes, Ninja 1000, Concours 1000, GPZ 550, KZ650, ect, but have ridden dirt bikes years ago. Wanting to get out on the logging roads and trails around here.

Ok, Read this thread and give the perspective purchase a good listening to.
Inquire about its oil consumption or lack thereof.

Read this thread posting and look under the engine at the oil drain pug boss,

Now ask the seller to remove the air filter, confirm that the back-fire screen is Not dusty & the re-usable air filter is Well Oiled.

Inquire as to whether the doo-hickey has ever been adjusted & preferably Up-Graded.

Welcome to the forum & the KLR.

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!

Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 84,000+ miles & counting
