So, if I'm understanding various posts, the Doohickey is more or less fixed in the '08+ KLR but the tension spring still needs replacing? I've got a brand new '09 just waiting to get out on the road (when the snow's gone, but more importantly when the ice is off the road). just trying to get a handle on the most important fixes to do. I haven't ridden off road in about 35 years and even then it wasn't my main riding location on my little Trail 90.
I did see one guy on a Dual on the roads today as I was doing errands. Too far away to tell what model he was on, but it looked smaller than a KLR650. I did get the KLR started and running today but I really want to get it out and start the break in period.
