Hi

I am new to the klr forum and I am going to look at a 09 with 13000km on it .

Is there any thing I should be looking for on the bike.

I am riding a Gs500 right now and looking for something bigger and can get me around the back roads.

Hello and welcome to the forums! :)

Make sure the oil level is correct, listen for any odd noises, and see if the back fender has a bunch of soot on it (or is discolored) by the exhaust. Sometimes the sooty fender will denote an oil burner. Best of luck to you, great bikes! :bike:

It might be a good time to start conversations with KLR owners you see and listening to the sounds from their engines. The KLR is a very low cost machine other than running it out of oil, it goes on and on.

Rear suspension is very often neglected so give some attention to signs of rust and looseness coming from the suspension bolt areas.
