So it's not even broken-in yet.

I had a HS buddy that rode a KLR to Alaska from WI back in the day. We thought he was nuts, as we all rode sport bikes and couldn't figure out why he would choose a big enduro for the long haul.

It wasn't until I got older and wiser did I realize what a big enduro could really do.

I've always like the newer KLR like yours. I just heard they will not produce them any longer.

doohickey mod

the klrs have one weakness. the doohickey. this keeps the counterbalancer tensioned properly. unfortunately Kawasaki will not admit to design fault. a re fab aftermarket piece has been designed to correct the problem.
doohickey mod with torsion spring

I have heard of the doohickey issue.

Can you resize your photos? They are UUUGE and are difficult to view.

Thanks.

I had an 05. How could a bike that fat and slow still be so much fun. It's like a mystery of the universe. I asked the previous owner if he fixed the doohickey. He was like.. "uhh... the what?" Hahah.

What kind of seat is that. The seat is the most important mod. Once you have that you're ready for anything. Other fun mods: Pelican top case or ammo can panniers.

They aren't all the same, but they are usually really large - larger than everyone else's...

It's the same for me on two different PCs, so I think that's how it is for everyone.

Maybe someone else can chime-in with how they are for them.

I dunno. Almost all of your photos require panning side to side to view, but most others don't.

Post #6 in this thread is about the largest eva!

Anyone?
