Sorry to hear about your bad luck. I too took a chance and bought a KLR250 off Craigslist, and so far it's been working fine. I guess it's hit and miss when you buy something used. Maybe you can...

Ricochet Skid Plate

Does your Ricochet skid plate offer any protection to the hoses going into the water pump? I'd appreciate the information as I tore a hose due to a minor spill. Thanks.
