Trying to find out how many KLRforum.com riders have installed the 685 kit and what their opinion. Don't be shy to share your experiences and opinions.
i went lectron. uses metering rod. awesome throttle response. no jets to fumble with. i pulled 56 mpg in the mountains with this carbJust installed mine and have about 200 miles on it...So far so good, but yep: There's a lot of carb tweakin going on...I have an understanding, but jetting has never been a strength of mine.
A friend / customer / riding partner just installed a Lectron on his 2 stroke 200? Suzuki RM250 that he acquired & refurbished last year. The oem Keihin carb had a low speed burble that he could Not tune out, drove him Nuts.wanted something different 😉
i beg to differ, lectrons work. plain and simple.I recently installed two Eaglemike 685's, one on my 2001 and the kit, quality and service is excellent. The bike runs smooth and the power difference is noticeable. .....I don't recommend ripping apart a perfectly running KLR unless it is time for a rebuild, burning excessive oil, etc. but to each their own.
On the carb thing; aftermarket carbs are pretty expensive and give you very little benefit over a properly jetted CVK IMO. ....Spend the money on a good shock!

Now 2100 miles and I love it. I needed to go through the carb again & with some fine points from a few solid forum members it ran great.Just installed mine and have about 200 miles on it...
