Hi everybody, I am Pawel from Poland, I already ride on Aprilia Caponord ETV1000 but have some problems with my bike to make it in good shape. Decided to buy 2nd bike, simpler and more reliable, thats is why I choose KLR650, in my case it is Tengai. I already prepaid for it and going to take it next weekend (covid19 situation), but I am worried as seller told me that this Tengai gest a vibration at handle bar at 60mpg. Could be something serious? Doohickey? Can i ride on it or should take a trailer for it? I appreciate your opinion in this case

Hello and welcome to the forum bigplik. It’s good to see riders from different parts of the world participating here. As for the Tengai, I think many motorcycles get vibrations at certain rpm/speeds.

If it was me and I had access to a vehicle and trailer I would haul it home. If any doubt it’s better to be safe than sorry. Please keep us posted about your new KLR. It will be quite a bit different ride than your Aprilia.

Hi Uncle Dick, thank you for the welcome, I ride more off-road on my Caponord than on pavement, for some time I feel closer to dual sport than to Adventure ;)

Hi, I'm a new member and just took delivery of my brand new, to me, red 2009 KLR 650 with 3660.7 miles on the clock. It's my first motorcycle. I'm from Houston, TX, but have been chillin' in the Texas hill country while we can all work over the internet because of Corona. Anyway, I've ridden it a total of about 15 yards so far up the driveway and then pushed it into the garage. I'm still waiting on my internet purchased safety equipment to arrive. I haven't had a chance to even snap photos of it thanks to the heat we're experiencing today.

Actually I was reading up on the defective spring preload adjuster which I seem to have on my bike. I ordered a new stiffer rear coil so that when I take the bike in for the warranty repair (it came with a 1-year warranty from that dealership) I can have them assemble it with the firmer rear spring. I'll pay them an hour labor or so to change out the shock oil while they have it out as well if they're willing if not, I've got a friend in Houston who builds KOH buggies and I can get him to do it and repressurize with nitrogen. Only problem is that the dealer is a 3-hour round trip.

Long time dirt bike rider from the two stroke days. Looking to enter the dual sport/adventure bike club.
Not a fan of BIG/HEAVY bikes (ie 800's 1,000 twins) The KLR650 looked like a good compromise between power & weight.

I bought a box stock 05 with under 1,000 miles
we'll see how this works out.................

Yo, just joined as I was looking to get some questions answered in the future and reading up on some threads that caught my attention. My new to me ride is an 86 KLR600 with estart, all stock except for the rear tire, Kenda Klassic 275D. Bush and trail riding for now, will eventually ride it on highway once my new tire needs to be replaced. I just want to have fun bombing around in the bush for awhile.
