What are these for?



Picked up a used 2013 KLR 650 recently and the guy (second owner) gave me these parts, he said the original owner did some work on the bike but neither me or the seller can figure out what these parts are for? anything important?

All pollution control parts. The 2 black canisters are gas evaporation limiting parts and the silver pump and hoses is the air injection system. Non of these parts help or hinder performance or reliability. The part with the metal "fork" is the side stand safety switch.

Here is a link to the Kawasaki parts diagram showing the fuel evaporative system. I believe this a California only system.

Kyle Leatham, When you have the seat off of your bike, I wish for you to check that the rubber elbow above & ahead of the battery in the air box is PLUGGED.
The large hose from the black charcoal can used to connect to that fitting.
Too many people do not realize that that fitting is ahead of the air filter in the clean side of the air box. If that elbow (or the hole it was in) is left open, the engine will be breathing dusty air.
Toney, Klrian and melbakid like this.

I have a California bike (although I'm in Oregon). I've been wanting to de-Californicate my bike but haven't found any clear instructions how to do so. Is it as simple as just taking the this stuff off and plugging the hoses? Is there any reason to do it besides aesthetic elegance?

Hey Thanks. I didn't know about that website. This is a good quarantine lockdown project.

I don't see anything in the instructions about tapping the hole where the egr pipe goes into the head anywhere in the instructions. I'm don't know what the egr pipe is. I really have to tap a hole in the cylinder head?
