Same here, give or take a few km's... I've never ran it out to see how far it will go on reserve though. I usually try to fill mine just before I hit reserve.

Range question answered - Thanks!

That's great guys, thanks. Almost twice the range of my VTR1000. BTW, started the bike yesterday after the doohickey upgrade; amazing how much better it ran and idled after. Before there was a slight klakety klack, now gone!

Hey everyone. I have a 2008 KLR. Just did a ton of mods over the winter on it including the doohickey, 22 cent mod and PCV mod since it is a 08 oil burning version. LOL. I'm located in Wainwright. Anyone else in this area? I do trip to the mountains alot and all over Alberta if anyone is interested in meeting up for a ride sometime.

Cheers. Nick

Actually it's a nice day for a drive OUT of Edmonton. Riding a bike in Edmonton scares me. Had a few close calls and prefer not to ride in the city although on occasion I do but usually on my Goldwing. I was thinking of heading over to Riverside today to pick up some parts for the Goldwing but ended up slaving over my lawn instead.

Have you ever rode on the Victoria Trail??

Cheers back. Haven't been out Wainwright way for a while. There is an interesting rail trestle out that way that I went to once.
