    Hey there, Preparing for a relatively long adv trip, and was taking a look at the drive chain. Noticed that the lower rear chain guide is actually touching the drive chain.

    Sounds aren't what they seem... 2008 KLR 650 purchased from 2nd owner, 3 mos ago with 10,500 miles. Doohickey and some other mods done by P.O.
