2008 klr 650 Returning Member
I live in Atlantic Canada I Was a Member back in mid 2013. when I Bought my first 2008 Gen2 in April 2008 that one lasted less than one day the first one was an early Build. It would not start when I went to pick it up, had to go back the next day, drove it home,felt more like a 250, no Power, would not start the next day. Towed back to Dealership, gave it back to them. Turned out to be a trapped vent pipe from the Carb under the tank. I waited until more stock came in and got a KLR that was less than 2 weeks old from being built, it eventually Had 3 Recalls needed I went to the dealership and told them about the recalls they had not heard about them, when I worked at dealerships we always checked for recalls at least once a week, The Recalls were Exhaust bolts loose at silencer, signal lights with rotting rubber and Wires rubbing under Gas Tank. I have driven Motorcycles for 40 plus years and I am a Retired Automotive Mechanic, I enjoy the KLR I do all my own repairs, and oil changes, only the first oil change was done at the Dealership and the Drain Plug was Loose and Leaking when I picked up the Bike. I have carried out many other Mods most people have The Doohickey was the First, Drill through Long Sub Frame Bolt, lower sub frame bolt mod, Eagle Mike Fork Brace,Accerbis lower front Fender, Carburettor KLX Jet and Slide Drill out mod, THANK YOU Eagle Mike First class service and Parts. I have Just finished Re shimming valves and have fitted new front fork oil and New Progressive front springs, and shortened the side stand. Have Just read the Post on oil consumption and modifying the banjo Bolts still have the Bike in Pieces so will be doing that Tomorrow. Thank you Glad to be back on the KLR Forum.com
