KLR Miles: Check-in

Hello, this kind of thing may have been done, if so I apologize and please direct me in the correct direction. It would be nice to get a record of everybodies total mileage on their KLR.

Mine is a 2008 with a total of 14,000 miles

1995 - ~50,000 miles on the day a Ford Explorer took her out
1999 - ~130,000 miles (had to replace the speedometer a couple of times so do not know exact mileage). Currently rebuilding a 1992 engine and will be back on the rode this spring.

Just shy of 30K on my 1995.


It's got a ways to go to catch the R90. 284K on that.

34000 on my odo,but I've had to repair my speedo a couple of times. I went 5 months without it so I would guess my 06 has 40000 or so.

Just noticed this thread again so I figured I'd update my numbers...same 2009, lots of modifications, now over 52,000 miles

(Would have a lot more but I picked up an 08 KTM Adventure this past Feb and put 19,000 on it since then)

What kind of KLR owner are you if you don't follow the herd and add all the unnecessary farkles? I got banned on KLR.net for even questioning the wisdom of adding lots of crap. I'm sure most of the mechanical problems are self inflicted.

My '06 had 2200 miles when I bought it in spring of '08. Was bone stock except for doohickey.
I've spent way more than I should have on farkles and it now has over 15K miles.
But now I hardly ride it since I bought a '84 KDX 200 last summer.

Those little KDXs are seductive, but you need to roll that '84 into a '86 2nd gen design. I've had several and still think the '86-'88 was the best handling of the breed, and it weren't no slouch if you kept it pinned.

What is your problem with people putting stuff on their bikes? You go from thread to thread and espouse the "yer a moron if you add this or that........." position, and it gets annoying. Everyone gets it. You're a maverick. You don't add things to your bike that you feel are unnecessary. And good for you for it. It's your bike, and I, for one, feel you should be able to do whatever you want with it, including just adding gas and riding it. What's it hurt if someone else wants to put something else on?

++1 I love to spend money on my ride(s) What the fork else do you work for? I do the things that make ME happy not someone else's theory of what I should do with my money or motorcycle and who gives a flying funk anyway You sure as hell are never going to get out the amount of miles designed in a bike if it's not comfortable for you to ride long distance........................just say'n...............................watch me do my thing..........
