    I’ve got an 00’ klr 250d and would like to do some adventure touring on it as it is a capable and light off-reader and can keep up on country highways. Are there good options for panniers out there (preferably hard shell and lockable)? or is that overkill and a soft bag is a must? should i get a...

    Hi there! I just bought a 1987 KLR 650 and it has some trouble cold starting. I was aware that many KLR’s can be temper mental when it comes to cold starting but i’d love to be able to get it going without using any throttle. I have tried full choke, half choke etc. i have cleaned the carb, air...

    Hey everyone, I'm new here. I just picked up a 1984 KLR600. It has a PWK aftermarket carburetor. I'm having trouble making it run well. Not enough gas/too much air. I'm still playing around with the A/F and the jets and I'm getting closer but I just realized that this isn't the stock carb! The...

    I have a 2016 klr 650 with only 1600 miles on it. Last weekend I went and did some hard trail riding with my brother and all was fine. A couple days later I was riding to work and it felt jerky. I had steady throttle but it kept jerking. Then a couple days later I went to ride again but this...

    Hi all. Tonight my KLR just died on me while driving down the road and after a struggle to finding a new fuse as the main fuse blew the starter would not engage. I ended up push starting the bike as I had to get it out of that area, but then about 50m up the road the bike completely died on me...

    I've been having backfiring since I bought my 2009 KLR over a year ago, and have finally gotten around to pulling the carb. I noticed that the choke plunger (the plastic piece that threads into the carb) is broken, so the rubber seal on the choke cable is doing nothing. My question is, could...

    My bearing in the rear wheel of my 2009 KLR 650 broke yesterday, and I need to replace all three of them. I am looking at some bearings that are sealed on both sides. Do I need separate seals as well, or are the seals on the bearings itself sufficient?

    I just ran north of Colorado Springs and back to Trinidad, about 400 miles at 75-80mph (5500-5800 rpm's).. I want to put on a 16 tooth but afraid I wont have the power to pull the grades or a headwind. "Most" motorcycles with a carb run a little rich up here. Question for anyone with experience...
