Hey, nice bike

Dan, I'd say that betwwen the two bikes I saw (which had higher miles than yours), prior to buying Ray's bike, that you should be between $1900-$2200 if it's all good. Look at AV8TR on the group pix. I think it went for ~$2200. Although it's newer than your "C". Didn't see your pix on the site?

Pete, I was going to post on the group site $2500 for everything, but I need something to ride until I get the R6.

Anyone have some side panels? White or red would be cool. Guess I could go black also. Need the ones under the seat.

Hey all, just checking in. I've got a 93-C. Great to see other KLXers around still (hard to find anyone who even knows what they are). Only worry I have with the bike is that I am NOT mechanically inclined at all, so I worry about every noise the bike makes. Would love a larger tank, wind screen and more comfy seat.

Its awesome to see someone able to ride 2 up on the KLX. I'm 6'6", and I barely fit on the bike myself...let alone with someone else.

Cool2 Vibe damped handlebars

Now that Ive got the big tank, Time to throw some more money at her.


New triple clamp and mounts for the R version. They had the vibration isolated bars.

Will take a little bit of doing to mount the gages and ignition switch to it, But I think it'll be worth it to get bars that don't make my hands go numb.

My 94' KLX650C

I absolutely love my KLX and would choose it over the KLR without question. 80 % of the 18,000 miles that I've
put on it were off-road and I've taken that thing places it
had no business going including off a cliff and aside from
the fact that it's a tank it's handled it pretty damn good.
