How about a wave FRONT rotor? A nice Biggun... 340 mm like Buell's! and anodized caliper bracket to match

All for less than 300 bucks (I just bought a new clutch)

There is a 320mm with what looks like the correct bolt pattern. I need to figure out which bracket to mount with it but will post once I have the details.

How many miles should I be getting before I hit reserve?

This is on a 1993 KLX650C.

I finally got mine running. I'm working on it's first tank of gas in years on the road. It sputtered at 80 miles and I switched to reserve. Seems to be running fine now but that seemed early to hit reserve. Previous owner did gear it way down for offroad so I'm sure that's not helping range on the highway.

Depending on the type of riding I'm doing, I've hit reserve between 110-130 miles. Typically, I refuel at 100 as I'm not a big fan of hitting the reserve.

Every once in a while I see one for sale here. I almost bought one because they're dirt cheap.

Ok. Something's not quite right with mine. That sputter at 80 miles really was me hitting reserve. I'm getting a little under 30 mpg. 3.2 gallons to fill up at 90 miles.

Anyone know the factory sprockets for a 1993 KLX650c? I've got 14tooth front and 49 tooth rear.

Final clue, it runs ok but doesn't pull smoothly under wide open throttle when hot. All in all, it seems weaker than my KLR but I've heard the KLX should have a good bit more power. Engine is way smoother and shifts smoother than my KLR, just need to do a bit of fine tuning on the jetting, maybe.

Heck, I'll reply to my own post. I won't get overly excited until I see what I get with tank #2. Tank #1 had mix of ancient gas + fuel additives + fresh gas. Since I ran it almost dry, results may vary with full tank of fresh gas.

Well I'll answer another of my own questions. Web research shows stock gearing is 15-43. So I'm turning 22% higher RPM than stock. So if stock gas mileage is ~50mpg, I should be getting ~40mpg. So I don't have as much of a discrpency to explain as I thought.

You have a bunch of aftermarket parts added on? Or (more likely) does Kawasaki lie?

An acerbis 5 gallon tank... And new 606's

The 5 gallons of gas accounts for 35 pounds... which would make the dry weight ~362 pounds which is 25 pounds over Kawasaki's "dry weight" of 337 Hard to believe I have 25 pounds of oil in it...

Liar Liar pants on fire

Just to keep the thread alive and for anyone who's curious.

Tankful of gas number 2 yielded 29mpg.

So my KLX650 is thirsty. I may investigate adding an auxillary tank at some point.

Anyone considering switching to 14-49 gearing can use this as a datapoint.

I got over 100 without hitting reserve. I just filled it to the brim the other day and reset the trip, so I'll see how I do this tank. With the mods, I figured less range, not more. It's the 6 miles at 85mph on the Interstate that are killing my milage. That's a whole lot of revs. My ZR is getting close to 50mpg ridden hard.

I am running 17 Motard front and rear, 15 / 43 gearing, 12 litre original tank and cover a touch over 200kms before its dry.. or needing a push, generally around 220kms maybe out by 12-18kms on the speedo/odm runs about 3% on the high side.. 1993 C model.
On a side note, I have just had a rebuild, swapped out the swing arm, ('a') version, panniers, rails, gos etc etc.. hope to get the photos up soon..
Monday I see about a 24lt tank fitting on.. looking a little more tricky, will see how it goes..
