685 & other questions.
Howdy.... Just picked up an 89 klr with all the whiz bang done.. upgraded forks, ims tank, etc yadda.. Everything seems to be in good order.
The purchase price included a spare 96 engine, and a yet to be installed Schnitz 685 kit. The guy who sold me the bike & kit said the Schnitz would swap the Jug at no cost.
I just talked to Schnitz, and although they used to do that, the designer/engineer of the 685 passed away several years ago and they no longer offer swaps.
So, Im gonna need a machinist who can handle this job and hopefully at a reasonable price... I have the directions that call out a few dimensions, etc, but im new to engine mods and dont really know how to read these.
I'd be interested in finding a local machinist (Minneapolis) who could handle the work. Im not entirely opposed to shipping to a shop that has experience with this mod, either.. just feeling out my options.
Also, side question... My neutral light only works about 30% of the time... Hoping its as simple as rebuilding or replacing the neutral switch.. any advice or experice with this issue?
Any input to help me get rolling would be much appreciated!
