Thumbs down Klr 650 stolen columbia sc reward

I'm offering a $1000 reward for information that gets my bike back

(803)-394-9198

VIN: JKAKLEA115DA13132

My motorcycle was stolen Saturday, April 13th from 7am to 12pm. Near Harden St at the top of Five Points. I was prepping for a cross country trip and have gotten my life ready to the point that I can get on the road!!! I feel like my own child was kidnapped and any knowledge or donates of motorcycles will be graciously received.





more details

2005 KLR 650 with just under 30k miles
sw motech crash bars without label big scratches included a decent thumb sized gouge on the right hand side
twin piston brake from ninja with custom bracket and ebc oversized rotor
center stand
skid plate with cutout on left side to fit crash bars
white cyrca hand guards
renthal bars without foam guard
lots of stickers, reflective tape, wrist watch on the bars to tell the time, swing arm has a swirl pattern drawn on it, most of this will probably be removed...
rear fender is oem white has a scratch on the left corner
the oil filter cover has 1 allen head bolt that is silver and the other is stock 8mm
front fender is painted half blue and half black
thermo bob
chock relocation onto aftermarket clutch puller (red and silver, cant remember the name, the one where the cable tensioner has a bearing and looks like a +)

red anodized tube valve cover
stock muffler opening isnt perfectly O has a small pear shaped dimple in the top

Bummer. Sorry. Hopefully someone will find it.

You might want to put a "looking to buy a used dual sport" thing on CraigsList... (bait)

Thanks y'all it has only been a week yet so my fingers are crossed. That bike had almost everything done. I had even designed a dual headlight system that turned with the forks which I hadn't installed yet.

I also have a 1990 KLR Tengai which has been sitting for 10 years where NOTHING has been done. The engine won't even turn with a wrench. I have no other transportation or wealth to speak of so today I'm cleaning out the shed and I'm gonna start on the other bike.

It's a sad state of affairs, I feel like my kid is being tortured under a foreign wrench.

I had a Honda 700 stolen years and years ago. It was found 3 days later, so with any luck maybe it will be returned.
Good luck !

A modest proposal, Frey!

Print up some FLYERS, and post them around the area . . . bike shops, dealerships, on telephone poles where riders ride/congregate . . .

You're more likely to get a lead from this manner of contact than from your Internet efforts, IMHO.

Imagine; just imagine, a website inmate spots what might be your bike. How long will it take him to go home, fire up his computer, send you a PM, and enable you to pursue the lead? Whatever, the bike's likely long gone, maybe parted out, by the time this transaction permits action on your part.

By contrast, a local FLYER, with the telephone number, the name of the law enforcement officer assigned the case, the case number, and your contact information permits much more rapid exploitation of the intelligence, IMHO.

Your bike, but--I would plaster the neighborhood with "milk-carton like," "HAVE YOU SEEN ME??????????" posters and flyers, with local contact info.

Good luck in finding your bike.

My intent in suggesting a reference to the police is to INTIMIDATE the thieves; to inform them law enforcement is involved, that your bike is HOT, and they better get rid of it!

My hope; you'll have a better chance of recovering the machine.

Effective, or counter-productive? Can't say. I thought a tipster might be more comfortable phoning an institution (the police) than "getting involved" by contacting you directly; maybe not.

In my experience, you must administer the reward yourself; otherwise, the institutionalized "Crime Stoppers" want the reward paid to them up front; non-refundable if the property remains unrecovered. Bad percentage on that bet, IMHO.

Regardless, the chance of the thieves handing it over appears remote in any case.

-------------

Oh, yes; meant to ask: Do you have COMPREHENSIVE insurance coverage? If so, what is your insuror's position regarding compensation for the loss of your bike?
