Gee, it looks like I need to learn how to spell. Yes, I agree, I keep well alone, but spending a little time on this forum, I have come across a few not-so-well's. It is those things that bother me slightly..........
Out the crate the carb settings seems not to be optimal for economy and performance?
Some easy, and inexpensive mods can be done to the airbox to enhance the economy and performance?
The PCV valve causes oil usage?
Wiring harnass problem, on 08 models. What about 09 models?
Accelerated wear on the valves / cams / etc?
Doo hickey spring?????
And then, what to do to enhance, like the fork brace, mud cover for rear shock, etc.
These are generally the things I picked up so far, and which I hope you guys can assist me in understanding which to do, and which not to worry about.
...The '08> Doohickey might look good to the average KLRista but the lever is of poor quality and tolerances. Very loose or sloppy on the shaft.
...Install an Eagle Balancer Lever and Torsion spring.
...Not sure about the wiring harness on the '09 but have not heard of any.
...The PCV reduces or elimates oil usage. Does this by redusing pressure on the backside of the piston. You could notice better performance.
...Airbox: pull the rubber grommet out and leave the rest alone.
...Air filter: replace with a Uni.
...Carburetor: start with the 22 cent mod.
...Forkbrace: for sure. An Eagle forkbrace is very good.
...Rear shock: Mud Cover: I used a piece of coping and some stainless steel nuts, bolts and washers.
...Adjust the valves to the maximum gap before you do anything else.
