2010 klr 650 pros/cons

O/K may pull the trigger going to look at a 2010 with 2k miles and have been searching the forum on 2010 models and not coming up with much at all on this year model so I'm looking for any positive or negative feedback on this year. I read one post that mentioned something about a wiring recall but it was not to informative hopefully I can get some feedback on this.Thanks

You might not find much on the specific 2010 model year, but all gen 2 bikes are the same. So, anything that applies to the 2008 and up models will be the same as the 2010 your looking at .

There was a recall on the signal lights and one for repairing rub spots on the wiring looms, but I think that was pretty well cleared up in the 2009 model. Not positive on that, but you can get a dealer to run the VIN to tell you if there are any outstanding recalls.

Oil burning seemed a little more prevalent on the 08's and 09's but it can be an issue on pretty much all years so the oil level must be monitored. That being said, my 08 uses very little oil, and only at prolonged high speeds (over 5000 rpm).

Lol, not sure if I really helped much, I guess the gist of my post is that all the generation 2 bikes are pretty much the same, 2010 model included.
