Unfortunately, the state of Wisconsin introduced a severely curtailed hunting season this year aimed at building the deer herd. If you are in the northern half of the state, it is almost impossible...

Glad it wasn't worse. The funny thing is, the more I'm on the street the more I realize that everything they told us in the basic riders course is true. Intersections are slick, people won't see you,...

Poor suspension

I'm really glad this rider was mostly OK. Good suspension is just as much of a must for this situation as good clearance. I have a KLR with stock suspension (that is, wet noodle suspension) and I had...

Oil and rain

This isn't a big story, since I only went down at about 10 - 15 mph and everything is fine, but it was in traffic and it might help others pay attention, so I thought I'd share it. A couple of days...

Nice trip!

Looks like you'll be having fun! I should get my passport so I can do something similar. A couple of suggestions for the Superior/Duluth area: Amnicon Falls state park is my favorite place to camp in...

Mirrors?

So I was just stupid and tried to skid a small tree with my bike and tipped it over and broke a mirror :norton

So - what aftermarket mirrors do you all like, or are the stock ones the way to go? I...

Vent hose

My bike is an '08, but I just replaced that hose on it. It runs straight down and comes out among the group of other hoses that you mentioned by the swingarm on the right side of the bike. On mine...

Progressive!

Have to agree about progressive insurance. When I was hit both myself and the other driver were covered by them, and they were really fast to pay out. I just was a bit surprised that I only had $1000...

Tools?

Do any of the other KLR riders in this area have a set of doohicky tools I could use to change the part on my '08? It seems a shame to buy a set of tools I'll only use once (hopefully!), and I found...

That would be nice. When I talked to them, they said they were in the process of sending back the last batch of parts to the manufacturers, so I suppose they'd have to order just like us now. They...

Yesterday I went over to Duluth Lawn & Sport to check on a part for my KLR engine rebuild project. It was my first time over there this year, and it turns out they've dropped both their Kawasaki and...

Yes, pretty easy. I looked at the half of the bearing on the head and at the camshaft, and there is no visible scoring on either of them.

And thanks for the tips, guys. I know that it's been run...

Thoughts on rebuild?

Hey guys,
I've been working on a partial rebuild of my 2008 KLRs engine for a bit now, because of a major oil loss problem I posted about a couple of months ago. It came down to oil had come out of...

Re: locking handlebars, Gen 2

The park position is no longer available on the Gen 2s, so no chance of the tail light coming on. As was previously mentioned, turn the handlebars all the way left, turn the key off, push down on the...

Always switch your multimeter probes back from the current measurement shunt before testing an outlet. On the plus side, the tips of the probes burn off quick enough to prevent major damage to the...

Talking KLR drives away

Last summer was the first year I had a bike, and when I had my first accident. I was commuting to work on my KLR during morning 'rush hour' in Superior/Duluth. It's not too bad here in northern WI...
