I live south of you. I have a 2000 KLR250 that I've been riding on and off as I haven't had much time to ride. I still need to get my license. I might take the Team Arizona course. I read your and the others posts on the Tucson forum, and it sounds like you guys have gone on some nice rides. You can check out the following sites for your new to you KLR250:
You should be able to get an answer from the dedicated KLR250 sites and the Yahoo KLR250 user group. Good luck!

The tank is a white aftermarket oversized, I'll check out the name on it tomorrow while I work on it more.
I just had a quick question- is the front brake on these easy to operate? Right now it is REALLY hard to pull the lever and get it to stop. I'm going to bleed the brakes and see if that helps.. I"ll also check out the condition of the pads. I bought the bike for my girlfriend, and right now it's just unsafe how difficult it is to stop. Thanks for any advice!
