  1. 2008 through 2018 KLR650 Wrenching & Mods
    I ride a 2013 I got last winter. It ran fine until it started backfiring here and there only when I let off the throttle. The next few days it got more common and louder, it started to bog down on medium/hard acceleration too. It seemed like a dirty carb so I took the carb out to clean, and...

    Finally finished the last round of upgrades to my klr 650. I've spent the last couple months taking it completely apart cleaning fixing and upgrading everything. This time I had it apart I took out the California emissions to cut some weight and free space. I added port on the right side fairing...

    Hello all, I've been doing research on getting a new lowered seat for my KLR. The main reason is just make it easier to swing by Leg over and getting off. Right now I usually drag my right toe across the seat when I get off. When in the bike, I can flat foot it with stock height, except I'm...

    Stupid question, probably stupid move too. I took off the lower fairings. Worried about radiator and anything else. Should I put 'em back on? I don't see "worrisome" movement but the radiator definitely travels back and forth a bit in the wind at freeway speed. Thanks all.

    I have a 2011 and tried installing hand guards but could not figure out a placement that didn't result in the handguards hitting the windshield when turning the bars almost all the way. I tried several different angles of the bars and everything on the bars and no luck. There's just not enough...

    Hi folks! I have been blessed (cursed?) with my first bike, a KLR 650 from 2008. I'm a fairly mechanically minded person and have been having a good deal of fun bringing it back into working order as it seems the last guy who owned it didn't really show it any love. It's also pretty crummy...

    I own a 2016 klr 650 and I was trying to install a klr 600 kick start. Over the last couple months I've taken my entire engine apart and swapped part of the transmission with a 2010. I swapped the out put shaft that connects to the sprocket so I could add a idler gear on the end. Well I ran into...

    Have been wanting to upgrade my rear brakes. So I've come up with the plan to swap over to a gen2 swingarm and brake system. My worries are if the gen1 rear hub will jive with it. I'm also curious if I would be able to run the same rotor. Thanks for any help in advance.
