As I stated earlier, I replaced my Doo today at lunch. Too much of a noob to post pics (need 15 post) but I'll summerize my experience.
Started at 11:30am
used the Eagle Mike kit (zero complaints, great on-line instructions)
Took me 2.5 hours and the hardest park is cleaning the gasket surfaces...
Teh OEM looked fine, spring came off rather easily, I can see where the part would be prone to breakeage with vibration*
Could be done much quicker now that I know what it takes (I'll post and share the kit around the Porland area).
The kit included new SS screws for the carb and front brake master cylinder...
The best part? I bought the last Saturday, my first KLR (I've owned bikes for over 30 years), I got to ride it twice today finally; once back to work, and later to a Scout meeting about 15 miles away....What a great town bike!!!!! I've got 4600 miles on the clock and will be ready to do my own valve check in a month or so with the help of you guys!
And oh...I've got tomorrow off and it's finally sunny and 70 derees
*I'll post pics of my doohickey when allowed...
