Hi everyone, new to the site. I had purchased an 04 but in 08 I went on a trip and on the way home the doohickey let go. Not wanting to get stuck I kept riding. I made it home but that was the end of the engine. So 6 years later it's time to get another KLR. I love the KLR because of it's versatility and I like riding it like a 250. The doohickey will be done as get it home!
