I have an 01 with 49,000 km so far. Did the doo at 15,000 km. The spring and doo were fine, but I put in an Eagle Mike unit to be sure. Cleaned the oil screen and set the valves half-way between min and max specs. Since then I just change the oil every 5000 km or so. The bike has never burned any oil. Other than the normal schedule of replacing chains, sprockets, tires, and brake pads the bike runs the same as the day I got it. I don't baby it but I don't abuse it either. One thing I have learned is to not dick around with the mechanical side of things too much..over farkling/tinkering of KLR's seems to cause more problems than they solve.
