    1987 to 2007 Wrenching & Mods
    Hello, I know someone will inevitably post a thread that already contains useful info, but I've done some serious searching as it is, yet the internet is a large place and I have specific questions. Onward. I have a 2007 KLR that runs hot, it is a newly acquired bike and sat for some time...
  2. Troubleshooting the Fan Electrics

    2008+ KLR650 Wrenching & Mod Questions
    My 2009 KLR was overheating on the last ride, close to the red zone in light city traffic after a 40 minute rural ride. Thought I'd added too much oil. Drained the oil - was a bit foamy looking and viscosity was closer to milk than oil. Changed it for fresh. Started it up and found it...

    2008+ KLR650 Wrenching & Mod Questions
    Hey everyone. I'm planning on buying a used 2009 KLR 650 tomorrow for $1500. The only problem is the guy dumped the bike on a trail ride a couple of weeks ago. This caused the radiator to break and leak out all the coolant. It also caused the neutral indicator light to go out. Other than that...
