I finally decided to find the spark plug... Off come the side panels, seat, tank etc. Was certainly glad that I did as I found a crimped wiring harness. The harness hadn't been installed properly. The insulation was being cut through... What a bummer a shorted harness would have been. That event was certainly going to occur and at the worst possible time..
But stilll. I rode into the nearest city yesterday. This darned KLR died on the way home. Running about 70 the engine simply shut down. Out of fuel? It only had 200 miles on a full tank. Still rolling along I switched to reserve and popped the clutch. The engine started and ran great. Hmmm..... Couldn't resist switching off reserve about 8 miles from home.. Still ran great the rest of the way. This kind thing bugs me...
