new guy post

After many years of riding road bikes I bought an 09 today. So far so good at 70 miles. I look forward to using the rest of the power band after break in.
I am used to more HP but look foreward to off road rides.
The motor tells me there is more in there if allowed to breath.

Yep, slap a good muffler on it. Open up the air box, and a good jet kit and you will be smiling from ear to ear. Those things are really bogged down with the factory set up.

Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

Ah the performance tax! you pay good money for a vehicle then promptly need to replace new parts.
Thats the way it works on the American bikes so I shouldnt be suprised. I guess the EPA is equal opportunity.
