Greetings from the Central Valley, CA
I am looking into getting another KLR. I previously had an 04 and a 1994 Barbie. It’s been about 10 years since I sold the 04 and ended up with an 06 Stratoliner then an 04 V-Strom 650 which I still have.
I like the V-Strom a lot, but is big and does not do as well off the beaten path as my KLR’s did. Ever since the guy I sold the 04 to rode off, I have regretted selling that bike. Of all the bikes I’ve owned, the 04 KLR specifically, was my favorite.
I have actually found two KLR’s, one on 08 with about 8K on the clock, and an 05 with just under 22K. I’m leaning toward the 08, but really like the look of the gen 1 better.
Any advantage to the gen 2 over the Gen 1?
Both my other bikes, we did the Doohickey, .22 cent mod, if that’s what it’s still called, so these items are not an issue for me if needed.
I seem to recall, that the 08’s had some issue, but there seems to be an awful lot of them on the road.
I plan to read through the forum and gather as much info as I can, but any input would be greatly appreciated.
