Hi KLRers,

I have a pair of unwanted Kyoto S1352 brake pads. I bought them from ebay, and after I tried to fit them, I found, there was a mistake in description. Looks like they fit KLR. If you want them for $15, please PM.

Local pickup or I can deliver in Adelaide metro area for free. No postage.

cheers.
Hi Dazza,
Wanted good value and easy to fix , low maintenance costs and decent range. I read reviews and just like the simplicity. It was a handful to ride at first but now getting more comfortable riding it. When I went to do the MOST at Clyde I got a lot more confidence in my ability. Still a lot to learn of course but now actually really enjoying riding.

speedo drive reinstallation

Hello to all
be careful to check the speedo drive is properly angled when refitting front wheel esp if someone else does it (new tyre). I didnt, chewed out the drive and the lugs on the hub Could not prove it was fault of w/shop It was cheaper to buy a second hand wheel and drive

KLR lights

Evening,
Went for a rego check this afternoon thinking I needed to replace the rear tailight.
Brake light working, no tailight, then found that low beam is not working, high beam is ok.
All blinkers and dash lights are ok.
Pulled the bike down at the mechanics checking every fuse I could find and pulling apart every junction I could find. No luck still no tailight and no low beam.
Passing comments from the mechanics ranged from blown fuse to bad earth to does your light stay on all the time?
Any ideas, something familiar to KLR, a fuse I haven't yet found? All .
Thanks Hughey

Dumb question, but did you check the bulbs? With the low beam and tail light being on permanently the heat makes the filaments brittle, combine this with the vibes the big single puts out and it is a perfect combination for bulb failure - happened to me within 6 months of ownership of my new KLR.

Yes swapped the rear one out, even though it looked OK. Haven't looked at the front one, but if the low beam was out would it affect the rear taillight?

The rear tail light may have burned out also.

On mine I seem to blow both the tail light and low beam once a year. Pain in the butt to replace the main bulb the first couple of times but I am getting quicker at it now!!

blown bulbs

Hello Hughey
Make sure the number plate light (which is also on all the time) is not the source of the problem with the tailight issue its prone to go on my 2012 model

Ive got an '08. I started blowing tail lights too. I replaced it with an LED one from Jaycar. It was about $20 I think, plugs straight in. Same brightness maybe a little brighter. Zero problems since.

If you keep blowing low beams, an HID kit should fix that too. They dont have a filament as such so it makes them resistant to vibrations.

I'm presuming this "globe blowing" thing is just a Gen 2 phenomenon?

Sell it and buy a Gen !! hahahahaha!
