When it runs low on gas, will the engine cut out and require turning the fuel lever to the reserve position? I have to get some new tires as it still has the original tires. Thanks again. Have a good evening.
It turns out that the last time I had a hard time starting our KLR250 was because the valves needed to be adjusted. They were closed up tight. Had them adjusted and it started easily. If you're going to do some maintenance . . . . . you might want to check your valves.
