Vancouver KLR Riders

Just purchased my first KLR and could use some guidance around basic maintenance. Anyone in Vancouver area willing to share their knowledge? Let's get out an ride too!

Hey, I just bought a KLR 650 2005. There are a few small fixes that should be done, have you heard of the doohickey?

I'm in Kelowna but Norm Keller is a mechanic in Chilliwack and he hosts the facebook page "KLR Technical". If you want to touch base with him, PM me and I'll forward you his email as he doesn't participate much here anymore.

Cheers,
Dave

Hey there! I just picked up my first KLR as well and am located in Vancouver. I was wondering if you've found some good off road access trails locally?

Welcome Cameron,

I'm in Kelowna so I'm not sure where the good routes are in the lower mainland. I've ridden around McNutt mountain in Maple Ridge and Chipmunk Creek out by Cultus lake on my dirt bikes. ....I know others ride in the Cultus Lk area on dual sports.

Cheers,
Dave

Salute! Another Vancouverite here (2012). I've done quite a bit of offroading around BC in the past 3 years, and I do all maintenance on my bike myself. Maybe we could organise a small meetup.

We are heading west for 3 weeks to Portland (with several stops planned along the route) to visit my son and his wife (KLR's in tow) in September and may just wind up crossing the border into your "back yard" to explore a bit. Time will tell but any rides we shouldn't miss???

Hey that sounds great. Ive already met a few guys in Vancouver with KLRs and we've done a few rides to Squamish. Im pretty new to Forums but we could exchange emails or cell numbers and meet up. Im In the Kitsilano area and ride early most weekends.
