Best year(s) for KLRs?
New to the forum, KLRs, and motorcycles. Always ridden human-powered bikes instead of motorcycles. Recently I've been itching to get a used KLR to ride into the hills for fishing trips, quick trips around town, etc., because my Dodge 2500 isn't the best suited vehicle for that kind of stuff.
Are there any year(s) in the KLR history that stand out as the best years for production of the bike? With my truck, there were a couple of years (03 & 04) of the Cummins engine that provided the highest MPG and still delivered ample HP and torque, had good tranny's, etc. This is the kind of thing that I am looking for in a KLR.
Also, is there an age/mileage limitation that I should be looking at - say nothing older than model year 2000 and no more than 20k miles?
Thanks in advance.
