I also stopped for gas yesterday at 208 miles. Started filling it and darn near overflowed it....the pump said 2.12 gallons. Just a touch over 98 MPG. That is twice what I normally get. Either the...

You got to figure, rate is probably $40/hr minimum (maybe as high as $60/hr depending on where you live). That means an hour and a half. I don't think it takes me quite that long, and I'm not being...

Ageed...they look like hell, wouldn't do much in a run-in with a tree, but they are great weather protection.

Put new grab on grip covers, installed a 12v outlet for my new GPS. Tapping into the "city light" wires would be a lot easier if I had smaller hands.

this was the first thing I thought as well. Not bad if you are moving, but heaven forbid you get caught at a trafic light. Add another 20 degrees from the road heat.

Sounds like you are in a position to make the KLR make money.

IMHO, unless you save at least 10,000 miles on your other vehicle, it's not really worth the expense of the bike. But like I said,...

I found a Nuvi 205 on e-bay last night for $40 with all the accessories. Figure I'll see how it works and how much I use it before I drop a big chunck on a good one.

Put it up on a lift with both wheels off the ground if you can. Give it a good shake down...chances are you will find something loose. My first thought was the rear wheel was out of line, but there...

Unfortunately the sight glass won't tell me if it is circulating to the top of the motor. Most of the bikes I've had have a bleeder that you can crack to make sure it doesn't have an air lock.

This is the first oil change since I got it...I assume there is no bleed screw on it to check oil flow?

Seat opinions.
