Sneak peek, 2028 KLR.

After a 21 year run of the second generation KLR Kawisaki has finally given into what consumers really want.

11.6" of ground clearance.

11.8" of front fork travel.

12.6" of rear travel.

37" seat height.

53 horsepower.

Excel rims stock.

Contract with IMS allowing the fitting of a 5 gallon tank.

Soft bags as an option.



I wonder what the 2028 Husky will look like?

Fine choice, Paper!! They're built like a tank. I've thrown them down cliffs, seen them submerged, felled burning trees with huskies, ran them at 13,000 rpm's all day long, smashed 'em with other trees, set the chain brake and rev'd 'em until the exhaust glowed red to defrost frozen fingers...they can't be killed.

We tried a stihl for one day and broke it.

Thanks!! I've been very happy with the 350 and the 136 that I have. I bought the 136 on a Fleabay pawnshop owner auciton, did a quick tuneup on it, new chain, and started cutting..

I bought the 350 new.. Oh, is it sweet!!!

Crappy suspension, though..

Yeah, the suspension on the stihl is slightly better. The stihl doesn't rev as hard though, that's why the suspension on the husky is a little firmer. They really do have suspension.

For a light duty branch trimmer I highly recommend the echo climbing saw, tough little saw.

I think I just helped hijack my own thread?

I love chainsaws!!!

+1 for the husky's

I used them surveying in Southeast Alaska and the only time they gave me any trouble was when I messed up.

I learned an important lesson with those saws.

If your going to cut something under water, step out of the way because its going to spalsh you
