Cool Just bought a 2008 KLR650 & looking for.....

an owners manual. The individual I bought it form did not receive it from the original owner. I would prefer a Pdf that I could download but I haven't been able to locate one through general searches.

Any ideas where I can download a manual? Don't have time to order one.

Thanks,
Slim40

I don't have an answer for you, but I don't think the owner's manual has ever told me anything useful. You'll probably be wanting a Clymer's anyway. Any particular reason you want the Kawi manual?

Welcome, enjoy the bike!

Welcome to the forum! The link below should get you what you seek. Swing by the Introduction section and have a seat by the fire.

Thanks for the link!

Thanks vatrader for the link. That's what I was looking for. I will eventually purchase a Clymer or factory repair manual but I always like to have an owners manual too. Don't know why, just do....

Thanks,
Slim40

Welcome!!! Get the clymer, it tells you everything you need to know, though I don't think it mentions the 6th gear.

Mwahahaha, yes, the 6th gear is in the special manual.

Clymer is great. Got it yesterday in the mail, scanned through it, and it's awesome
