  1. 1st to 2nd gear Grinding and Missed Shifts

    2008+ KLR650 Wrenching & Mod Questions
    I just bought my first KLR, a 2013, about 2 months ago. When I bought it the oil was quite low and it had been sitting for a few months. Ive fixed it up a bit, and have been commuting on it a few days a week. One day I was experimenting with 2 finger clutch pulls, and since then second gear has...
  2. KLR600 '84 dies with clutch

    Other KLR's - 250, 600, Tengai, C Models, KLX...
    Hi guys, My clutch cable got broke so I've installed a new one. All looks good and I set it as said in original manual, but now bike stalls instantly if I pull the clutch. I thought maybe it's a side-stand sensor, but this happens even on neutral. There is no bad sound from clutch - it just...
  3. Starter freewheeling

    2008+ KLR650 Wrenching & Mod Questions
    Started to have starting issues, need help to determine what the problem is. It turns the engine a bit then freewheels. I have my 2008 KLR open to do the doohikey and fix the deep hole. Could it be simple as low battery? I can't test it now that it is open. But if I need to change the starter...
  4. Clutch Replacement Parts?

    1987 to 2007 Wrenching & Mods
    Hellow there. I've got a 2006 KLR650 with 3k miles on it. I got stuck in some mud a few weeks ago and in my zeal trying to extricate myself from the mud by walking the bike out in first gear, I completely and utterly smoked my clutch. Fried it. TOAST! (pics available upon request. I took...

    2008+ KLR650 Wrenching & Mod Questions
    I'm swapping out my complete 2009 transmission with an incomplete 2014 transmission. I would like to re-use as many parts as I can. I'm interested to find out what experiences others have had. Here's what I've learned: There were changes made in 2011. Clutch: In early 2011 the clutch was...
  6. Clutch Doesn't Release All the Way

    1987 to 2007 Wrenching & Mods
    My 2006 KLR clutch doesn't seem to fully disengage. When I put the bike in gear from neutral, it really jerks. Before starting the bike I've been 'breaking' the clutch and then starting it in gear, but now the bike won't start unless I put it in neutral. I've adjusted the clutch so that there...
  7. Gears slipping/missing, ideas??

    2008+ KLR650 Wrenching & Mod Questions
    I was out doing more "break-in" miles today and I noticed a pretty major/weird problem. When shifting through the gears, first through 3rd seem to work pretty good. Then when I shift into 4th gear, it acts like it does not engage fully. It will sometimes pop back into 3rd gear (making the RPMs...
