Just found this stuff: http://www.b3cfuelsolutions.com/ Ethanol shield. put in 1 ounce at fill up and no more draining your carb to start when it's sat for a week or more. Improroved power and gas mileage also. I've got it in every engine I own now, 2-stroke or 4.

If you can find the big bottles (16 ounce) it's less than $1 an ounce. Home Depot has the small bottles which are good to keep for each dose. I get the big bottles at my local mower, weedeater, leafblower etc. store.

The stuff is awesome.

E-start conversion

A question to those who have converted a 650R to electric start.
Is it worth it?
I have a KLX 650C ( 93 US)motor as a parts donor, but from what I have read there were some other problems to resolve.

Street tire sizes?

Doing a long pavement trip later this summer with my brother (Triumph 800XC) and Dad ('86 Honda Goldwing) on pavement only. Looking for a set of pavement tires, not dual sport 50/50 or 90/10 BS. Probably going to get some cheap Shinkos. Question is what size rear tire can I fit on the stock 17 inch rim? Might do a track day in the future. I know at some point going too wide for the rim changes the profile, so probably no wider than a 150. Also wheelspin isn't an issue so I guess it doesn't need to be that wide. Just looking for more options in sizing. I'm going with a 90 90 21 up front so the speedo isn't any farther off than it already is from the factory I'm also looking to get a little better cruising RPM at speed so was thinking a 130 90 17 instead of the 130 80 17. Thoughts?

Free KLX-650C shock

Does anyone have any interest in a KLX-650C shock? We replaced the stocker with a shortened Progressive and I have been carrying the stocker around in case we ever un-motarded it. But since we sold the bike a few months ago I no longer have any need for it. Had about 9K miles on it when removed from the bike. Free to a good (or bad) home if you pay the shipping or you can pick it up in PDX.

I've added a 16T CS (43T rear) sprocket and it's a perfect match, IMO for road use. I also have mounted a 140/80/17 Shinko's 705's. As far as the front I'm using a 110/80/19. Tires feel great, no complaints, we'll see about the mileage.

I think the 130/90 is the recommended tire. I have run D606 and Pirelli's in that size without a problem. I don't know what is available in a more street orientated tire in that size. If you find a tire you like, you can upsize the front sprocket to a 16 for highway travel. I have one, same as the KLR but to fit it, you need to mill down the middle bolt boss under the sprocket cover. A drill and large bit will do it. You can buy a sprocket nut for the KLR that does away with the lock washer and is reusable so changing sprockets is a 15 min job.

I've been told a 140/80 is the largest size that will fit on KLR's and KLX's.

650c owners

Klx650c owners your swingarm, it looks a lot like my klr650c swingarm.The slider adjusters etc look very similar.Could some one measure up from the rear of the arm to the pivot centre and the distance between the swingarm sides at the the rear wheel.Also the width of bottom shock mount at the knuckle.I'm interested in the drz shock conversion and klx wheel inalterability's with the klr.
here's a klr650c
Thanks

Before we all MEASURE.
there a lot of ifs when you have..........

I don not see why a klx swingarm should do better the job.


Why not find a aftermarket shock from another bike for the KLR
how long eye to eye is your shock.
what is the shock stroke.
and what is your inside measurent of the lower fork from your shock.

there more +/- 430 mm shocks to get and also +/- 460 mm shocks

But is there a place for the sidepot off the shock
The frame is more narrow than that place on a klx.

Thanks for the reply.405mm but 430 fits. A WP shock off a lc4 fits and there is room for the sidepot.Drz stuff is a lot more commom and cheaper.
