Found my bike
I just picked up a 2003 KLR 650 with 18,000 miles. All stock except the doohickey has been done. Gotta do the normal maintenance items just to be sure there all done.
Besides that I want to add some luggage. Right now Iím thinking about a pannier rack from dirt tracks mfg with a couple pelican expedition cases. What do you guys think? Anyone running this setup?
I need to get the front brake working better too. Itís pretty weak right now. I donít think its air alone as I have good resistance in the lever. Iím hoping pads and a fluid change/bleed will improve it. Maybe change the rotor too? Any other ideas. My other bike is a 2010 Concours and that bike has a hell of a front brake. I donít think the KLR will come close to stopping like it does but I need better brakes to feel safe on it.
Thanks for any opinions/ideas in advance,
