Are you saying you can get the tank off without removing the seat? The guy on the forum was not removing the side fairing panels. Just removing enough hardware so they can be spread apart far enough to remove the tank. I can not visualize how you can access the air box without removing the tank or somehow getting enough seperation between the tank and the air box to remove the eight bolts and the filter. If you can somehow get that seperation, you might as well just remove the tank and get it out of the way. If you have a 20 minute method, you should post details on the forum for all to benefit from.

No, just that they make removing the seat which takes all of ten seconds sound like an issue. Not removing the tank from the bike saves from disconnecting/reconnecting/damaging fuel lines. It's not really in the way. If I tell everyone how to do it how can I charge folks the big bucks? Just kidding, my days being a motorcycle mechanic ended years ago.

You needed to get rid of the Strom anyway, Suzukazi just does not have the same ring to it How is Warren Jr. doing?

Take all that stuff off and set it outta the way. The front two bolts in the air-box would be next to impossible to get out with the tank in the way. A rubber gasket goes around the perimeter of the filter in side the air-box; you try jambing it (the filter) in and you'll risk not seating that gasket. That would be bad.

I used to assemble my own air filters by removing the old filter and siliconing a Purolator GA-33590 in its place; cost $5.00. those guys over at Strom Troopers probably have a detailed description.

Mileage dependent: Change your plugs and check your valve clearance while ya got it apart.

As Hack said, a filter replacement shouldn't take much more than 20 minutes and believe me, Stroms are by no means maintenance whores.

Well, I don't claim to be a great mechanic but your a lot better than me if you can pull that off. Warren Jr. moved to Breckenridge, CO in October of last year to find work. He landed a job with a property management company. In January he got employee of the month, which impressed the hell out of me because that means he actually had a job for atleast a whole month .
I'll be heading out there in July to do the Colorado TAT and Colorado Back Country Discovery Route. Warren Jr. has his KLX-250 out there, so hopefully he will join Agstacker (Clarence) and I on this adventure. I'll probably need his strong back to get my KLR out of the ditches every so often.

That only works if you're by yourself, have no beer, and need to go meet up for a ride within the hour.

DooHickey Upgrade

Given the fact that it takes me most of an afternoon to do a 20 minute air filter change out on a VStrom, can anyone with KLR experience give me an estimate on how long it should take to do the doohickey upgrade on my KLR? I bought the whole kit from Eagle Mike, so if anyone else is contemplating this upgrade, just buy the lever and spring and you can borrow the tools that come with the kit from me. Other than dropping shit inside the engine case or allowing the idler shaft to fall out while pulling the inner casing, does anyone have any other warnings that I should be aware of ?

Ahhh Eagle Mike's Doohickey Mod for the KLR...the origin of the "Cat Herders" namesake



Just ask Gimmeslack, blacksan, Skippii, Oldnogps or Hppycrabguy
