I'll never understand those who dump a bunch of time and money into the 20+ year old KLR platform. Probably end up cheaper (and much better) to just buy a KTM/Husaberg/etc.

My issue is parts, and eventually you're going to need parts.

One Husaberg dealer in my area, 2 KTM dealers.


Now having said that I'm always waiting for kawasaki parts but at least I can go to a few different places for them.

Looks to me that it will break the main frame tube sooner rather than later, it's that design constraints thang.

I have been following the ADV rider thread since the start .This is one great build and exactly what is needed to make the KLR the bike that would fit commuting , touring and adventure touring duties.
I have a KLr and also a ninja 650 R and the ninja motor is as good as it gets for a 650 . It has no mechanical issues at all .
So all that is needed is a wrecked Ninja 650 r and he will supply a kit to do the swap.
One item that I think remains to be fully worked out is the airbox and filter location.
So with The Triumph XC 800 on its way kawasaki would be well adviced to make a KLRE650 for the masses cause it would sell like hotcakes.
