Been looking for one myself, all I could find was a german version.

There is a 600 manual out there though which is the base manual for the 250. I dont have the link but you should be able to find it pretty easily on google.

Manual

I bought both on ebay. The supplemental just arrived today. You can try cheapcycleparts.com for a new one. Good luck![

Ricochet Skid Plate

Does your Ricochet skid plate offer any protection to the hoses going into the water pump? I'd appreciate the information as I tore a hose due to a minor spill. Thanks.

Turbo city has one but the price is almost 3 times that of the ricochet skid plate. http://www.turbocity.com/product_inf...roducts_id=691

For the price and protection the ricochet offers its a great deal. Here's some pictures.

New KLR250

Just got this bike from Craigslist. I am working on the rattle can fusion paint for Desert tan. I am excited to take it for the first longer ride today. I had it apart for several weeks, cleaned and rejetted carbs, put the stock pipe back on, added uni air filter, cleaned the 1/2 inch od schmootz out of the gas tank and replaced the petcock. I have chain and sprockets to do yet and brake pads and brake fluid change as well. i am sure one day the rear and front shocks need to be addressed. For now I am just going to ride it. When I added the stock pipe I realized the PO put a 130 width tire on the back and I smelt it!! I had to crank of the preload all the way and add some spacers on the pipe hanger. I will put a stock 120 width tire on the back when this one is gone. I was really excited when after all the jetting, clutch cable replacement and shims under the main needle how it kicked over and ran like a purring kitten on the 2nd kick. Hopefully in 8 days I will have the 2nd set of plastic painted and a desert tan look!! This is a func bike, I need to go ride today after church!!!

So with all the hot weather the electrical tape fix on my turn signals kept failing. A trip to the hardware store resulted in a good fix for less than $2.00 each


This is what I started with


I bought a5/8th inch metal coupler and cut it into half



then I welded the halfs of the coupler to the threaded pieces that were part of the original turnsignals


Add the 5/8th heater hose and pipe clamps


and now you have another cheap KLR fix.

Does anyone know where to get 5" x 5.5" AIR filter for the 1986 KLR250?

I'd like to have a "K&N" style air filter, but anything similar will be perfect.
Thanks.


My stock OEM air filter crumbled to dust when i pulled it out from winter storage.

*edit*
air filter, to be more clear




Fixed my post.(AIR filter)



All the air filters for 87-05 on Ebay are pictured, as round.

MY '86 is clearly 5"x5.5" square(rectangular).....


I just wasn't sure if the Ebay ones were going to fit my square filter, as they are all pictured as round, and none claim to fit the '86.


And since it looks like general loose open cell foam, i'm going to try to find a KLR spirited fix.

I probably have some old foam lying around.

Bummer big time, I got it running and was having a great time until my motor seized. I can now not kick it over as the it locked up hard. I am bumming big time. Hmmm....

Sorry to hear the bad news

Sorry to hear about your bad luck. I too took a chance and bought a KLR250 off Craigslist, and so far it's been working fine. I guess it's hit and miss when you buy something used. Maybe you can find a used motor from a Mojave. Good luck!

What's the trick to starting the bike warm?
Mine starts and runs great when cold or hot (1~2 kicks) but when warm like after a 15~20 min. break it takes 20 kicks to start.

Use the choke even though you shouldn't have to. If that doesn't fix it it may be time to check/adjust your valves.

I'm pretty sure that hard starting while warm is due to tight valves.

Hi all, just picked up a mini klr- a 2000 bone stock with 2660 miles, tires still with nips. Dollop of SeaFoam through the system and it's good to go. Great little scoot-around bike!

now to get to it- suspension, bars, heated grips, rack, windshield, lighting, on and on.....!
