Here's my new (to me) '03 KLR 250. Since buying it a few weeks ago I've changed all fluids and filters, replaced the tubes and tires, installed new grips, replaced the chain and sprockets, and had the valves adjusted. Today I installed a gently used front rotor (mine was a little too groovy), and replaced the front pads with EBC Carbon models. I also made the back platform that holds the Pelican pistol case. I made the platform out of 3/8" luan plywood, coated it in marine epoxy, then gave it a couple of coats of Army green epoxy ammo can paint.
I've probably put about 500-600 miles on the bike so far, and it's given me no trouble whatsoever. Last weekend I took it on a 3 day trail-riding adventure in the Mid-Michigan area. All in all I'm very happy with it so far.
