  1. 2008 through 2018 KLR650 Wrenching & Mods
    Whats going on everyone, I just bought a 2009 (VIN 24000+) with 12k miles on it as my first bike. I’ve been doing some basic maintenance, changed the oil, air filter, checked brake pads, bought the thermo bob... But as I’m not even licensed yet and the DMV makes you wait a month for...

    Basically selling all the parts I've removed from my 2009 KLR to make it a tracker! Trying to sell everything basically with a GOOD discount of OEM price! Good no, GREAT! I don't need those parts anymore, most of them don't even fit on my modified frame anymore, so please help me to empty my...

    2009 KLR Review, 1st time KLR owner As a relatively new owner of a 09 KLR, and a first time owner of any KLR, my review might best be used by someone like me. I have owned 18 bikes in my life, about 50-50 street to dirt, so I know what each type of riding is all about. I researched long and...

    Hi everyone; Want to get my first bike and have decided on what I am affectionately calling "The Big Ugly" 2009 KLR650. Today I went to the Motorcycle Mall in Belleville NJ and was beat in the head by a fast talking kid, when he finished trying to add on all the bells and whistles the price...
