not much of a ride today...rode from barn to garage...

decided to install new left hand control, the one with the headlight off switch...then do a valve check...that i have not done in 21,000 miles...

the klr is pretty easy to work on, removed fairing, then little plastic wire harness protector...then just unpluggedleft hand control plug, removed from bars and hooked up new one. it was really that easy.



this switch has 3 positions for lights, all the way up runs all lights as usual, flip it to center position and run tail light only, flip it to bottom position and all lights are off.

even has this cool switch on back side of control, it's a flash to pass button...no matter what position light switch is in, just press this button and it flashes high beam...nice.



had some running around to do, when i got back...my dog was tryin to tell me to go lay on couch and drink beer, that pesky valve check can wait a little longer.



i agreed....i know i need to do it, but i lack the motivation to tear into a perfectly good running motorcycle...and i just know i will drop something down in there when i get it opened up.

we have a pretty good group of people here now, and 4 of u are on klr's, and i know 3 of em need valve checks...maybe we could get a tech day scheduled.

at least that way we could all stand around and point fingers and screw up or bikes at once....i am pretty good at dropping shit down inside motors...and i can snap a bolt off with the best of em.

i have the space, and the tools, but live about the farthest away, maybe somewhere around the bedford area....if not, thats cool...i can screw my bike up on my own....no problem.

Same with the ol' Yamadog here. Although, I did manage to shut it down long enough to service it today. Been rackin' up the miles lately and she was due for a fresh oil & filter change. Ready to go again now though

I would appreciate a KLR tech day. I would really like to do the doo on mine. Plus I would like to do the 22 cent carb shim mod, and I am not very mechanical, so help would be great.

22 cent carb shim mod? Guess I haven't heard of that. What's that all about?

I just did mine Thursday. Not much of a wrencher, but I'm learning!
I'd love to attend a klr tech day.

Click

I do want to do the valve check and maybe next winter do the 685 rebuild.

I'm up for a tech day sometime. Not that the KLR requires alot of upkeep,besides tech days are usually BS sessions anyways while one guy works on his bike everyone else gives useless tips.


As far as Suzuki goes I've got one that won't start for shit. It's really starting to piss me off. I'm thinking I kept the wrong bike. I miss the realiability of the Honda.


No offense to any Suzuki owners. I'm sure my attitude towards them will change if mine ever runs again

Speaking of needing help...

I had a guy approach me yesterday about purchasing, what he described, as a Honda XL250. He said it has turn signals, headlight, tail light & horn on it. He also said that he doesn't have a title for it. He doesn't have much more info about the bike as he just now picked it up. He mentioned that it's already had the police check done on the bike and that he got a bill of sale from the guy he bought it from and he'd give me one too if I wanted the bike.

My question is this... Does anyone here know what kind of ordeal it would be to get this thing titled in the state of IN with just a bill of sale? Would it be worth the hassle or just impossible? In the past, I've always had a clear title to work with and have never traveled down this road before.

If the VIN clears and you have a proper bill of sale filled out it's just a matter of taking that info to the DMV and applying for a lost title. There's a small fee and the usual waiting game, but after a few weeks you should be good to go.

I don't have a KLR but might want to attend a tech day.

Do you think you guys could change my oil, adjust my valves, and change my tires for me? Maybe polish it up a bit as well?

I've never done any wrenching or cleaning and I don't know what to do. I'm not interested in leaning, I'd just rather have you guys do it for me.

Here's the deal, we will work on your bike for free beer. But the catch is we only start working on your bike after we drink all the beer.

You guys are no help.

Fine, I guess I can bring beer. I can also bring hookers and blow. Tim gets the one with the adams apple though.
