Gotta Spare KLR650 Motor Lying Around?



Quote from Picture:

"Build by The Edge Products for a customer in Melbourne this KLR650 powered beast never made it to it's right-full owner. While on its journey from Perth to Melbourne it was stolen off of the back of the truck!. Its a pity some resort to stealing others pride & joy. You can't say that the Sidewinder is not in demand, people will go to any lengths to get their hands on one!"

They are made my a company out of Australia called The Edge. I've found these before and thought it would be cool to make if anything ever happened to the KLR and the engine survived...Doug

Yea, they are expensive and then there would be shipping from Aulstralia unless you found a local distributor. But it give a person idea on what to do with that extra motor ...Doug

I have an old wheel horse lawnmower sitting down in the woods here. It has NO motor :razz: I have been thinking about putting this motor on it. 20 years ago I would have done it already, but now I think about things more often than I do things. :cry:
