Smile 50,000 miles and going strong

Just wanted to let members know the my 03 KLR650 turned over 50k this weekend.I know there are many that have more then this on theirs. I have had only two problems over the years one being a bad speedo. cable go out during warranty and a bad petcock at about 30k. The bike has the original doohickey. I have used Castrol 20-50 in it most of its life, and Kawasaki anti-freeze. Oil and filter (Wix 24951) changes at about 2k. and I always run 87 octane gas. I take it in every winter and have the vales checked and adjusted as needed.I installed speed bleeders front and back and change out the brake fluid yearly. The three best acessories I have put on the bike is the IMS gas tank along with the Happy Trails bag rack and Givi hard luggage. I had nerf bars and a center stand at one time but removed the center stand because of my riding style and the nerf bars because of the IMS tank. I have used several brands of tires over the past years, some better then others, but all performed adequate for my type of riding. I love this bike, easy to maintain, gets people attention, sits high above the traffic and gets more comments then my 89 K100rs/se. Ken McDonald, Katy Tx.
