I run a stock KLR '10 model. had some major trouble at 10000km (6000mls) due I think to the "restrictors" in the carby. these are put in place so "learner riders" can buy this model ( with less HP) as soon as they get their licence in Australia. Kawa fixed it under warranty & threw the restrictors away. She now running sweet as.
I've now done 21000km (13000mls) total. Been on 2 x Outback rides of about 5000k each. Also completed 2 x 1000mls in 24hrs rides with std seat ..I personally don't have a problem with a sore arse. I am planning a 2000km in 24hr early next yr.
Mine cost $7234 with 6 mths rego. ( new) Dont complain about petrol prices....usually around $1.40 / 1.45 a ltre. ( say $6.00 gallon )in Australia. Most I ever paid was $2.05ltre at Innamincka. .
I like looking at top shelf bikes. But the KLR is a bloody good bike for the $$$.
Those are some awsome accomplishments on a Klr !!!
I Have done some 1,200 mile days on touring bikes ,but have not exceeded 500 miles on a Klr yet.
