I have considered going to take a look at this bike but I keep telling myself no more 2-strokes. Its been on CL several time , I'm surprised it hasn't sold. Must be the seat. I had an old KE-125 that the seat was nearly that bad. Could not sell it until I took a black Tshirt and duct taped it to the pan. Sold it a couple hours after that.

"1975 Yamaha Rd 200B. Needs carbs Rebuilt and maybe points and condensers. Easy fix. Ran last year and the year before and so on, There's plenty of life in this bike. You can get almost anything you want for her at hvccycle.com. I Don't have as much time as I used to, to ride. This bike has a new battery, Fuel lines and inline filters, Carb gaskets, plugs and plug chords. Electric as well as kick start both work all lights work too. I've enjoyed riding this vintage bike the last couple years I've had her. Have Title and keys."

No reason not to buy a 50 dollar replica seat cover and fix some of the foam. I did it with my DT175 and it made it so, SO much nicer looking.

Here it is:

.....a really nice low (4400) mileage 2006 KLR650. Picked up on Saturday for a guy in our club. By the time I got it home from out of state he had decided he was quitting motorcycling because he might fall on his tushie and get hurt.
Anyway....thought I'd put a low-key feeler out there on Central. Beautiful shape, never offroaded, Kawi green, Corbin seat, jetted with a Supertrapp, TKC-80's, tool kit, owner's manual. $3500.

Whew
That Flat River course was Gnarly rocky and rough!
Broke the curse, didn't get a flat, finally finished and got to do the waterfall section (it broke my kickstand) YEE-HA!
My son beat me for the first time in two sections, in the grand scheme of things that is in itself very cool. I'm "super pumped" he enjoys dirt bikes. And has the skills to do so relatively safely.
After the race told him if I ever mention racing there again to punch me in the face.
I never wanna see another rock again.

Sounds like a regular "day after the race" mentality for me too. With lots of online parts ordering in the mix too haha.


Had a rough time at the IXCR/WIXC Baker's Camp race yesterday. Lots of wrecks, went over the bars on a nasty downhill. Time for a new helmet and some new handlebars. Also lost a triple-clamp bolt???

Hopefully I'll get to the video soon for everyone's enjoyment.

Also, good hangin' with Chickengrease and Rob (bob? robert? bill? frank? it was rob, right?).


Should be ready to rock and roll for Saturday's race with MWXC and MAXC at Paragon, IN. Word on the street is that there will be a special celebrity racer from the Central ILL region, factory-backed KTM 530 XC-W with all the trickest bits and bobs to blind the other racers.
