Just about all the low mileage ones (<30000km) are from Oz.
I noticed there's no 2008 model listed. There was a thread on ThumperTalk a few months ago about a 2008 with a blown 3rd gear. The owner was unhappy because it was under warranty and they totaled the bike leaving him to payoff the difference between the totaled value and what he owed.

I looked but couldn't find the thread. Any info on this one?

sent my pics etc to sazook sa, their technical manager has asked for more info on the bike as well as the complete shopping list for repair - maybe a happy ending after all....
Only the 2nd 5th gear I've heard of.

Happy endings are good.

sazook have offered to give 50% discount on the parts.
waiting for written confrimation and their price list at the moment.
hoping it's 50% of their cost, and not 50% of dealership price...
called the technical manager today and said i want to fix - hurry with the prices.
time will tell...

I think that's the first time I've heard Suzuki offering anything at all.

Score!

Okay guys, I had said some time ago I new of one that had let go. Well, I still don't know about him but I ran into another friend this morning who I haven't seen in a long time, at our local Suzuki dealer. He was bringing his '09 back after just having the 3rd and 4th gears replaced as well as a bore and new piston, rings and valve guide seals.
Evidently, it had started smoking and then 3rd gear took a dump. He said the tranny had been making noise since day one. Good thing he bought the extended warranty.
The reason for bringing it back after the rebuild was a base gasket leak.

Anyhow, he's had two of these bikes and they both suffered the 3rd gear problem.
This one an '09 with 6,600 miles and an '03 with 20,000 miles.

Ironically, I was there to look at a used '03 they had for sale but it had sold a couple days ago.

Just out of curiosity, How hard is he on his bikes generally?

I'm sure his 3rd or perhaps his 4th one, will be a lot better.

Bingo ! Just sold another couple dozen KLR's, with this "useful" thread.
