Marine Corps KLR's

I saw this on youtube and thought I'd share.
Being a former Marine myself, I always knew they used KLR's but didn't know they ran on diesel. Can you imagine more than doubling the MPG on your KLR???

I think there were a few of these , 3 possibly on ebay last month and they might have all been owned by the same person..

those look even more impressive than the current crop of KLR 650s do.

there was one on ebay, that guy is now under investigation by NIS seems the Marine Corps does not auction the old KLR's, the old gassers are sent for conversion to the multi fuel diesel, if they are in too bad of shape they get scrapped, mainly because they are not DOT certified for highway use meaning no title. So ,,,,, if some asshat says he has the real deal, walk away, he just put OD paint and an IMS tank on a regular KLR. or it's stolen, which is the case for the last one on ebay

anyways .... the multi fuel engine is the trick, burns JP-6 & 8, kerosene and diesel, wished they were available to us, I'd spend the bucks for one.
