KLR 650 Tengai ready to go! - $1700 (Damascus)

KLR 650 Tengai ready to go! - $1700 (Damascus)

The same bike was made from 1987-2007, this one is a 1990 Tengai (KLR 650-B2), which was a city version. It means that the seat is a touch lower, it has the low "city style" front fender, the turn signals cancel when you push the button (don't have to slide it back to center), slightly softer suspension, and most of all, a two-piston front brake (not great but better than most KLRs). Has about 19,000 miles.

The tank and side panels were replaced to make this a better campus ride for the U of Md and as a city commuter. Ironically, the bike never got dropped in the year and a half we've owned it. The custom tall windshield is actually effective, the turn signals are tucked in where they shouldn't get broken off if the bike falls, there are 10mm socket holes in the side panels for easier seat removal, a connector for a battery tender, etc. The body is obviously a repaint that came out pretty good. It's painted with engine paint, so it's somewhat gas-resistant. If you spill a bit at the pump, wipe it off right away and use some rubbing compound later - you won't strip the paint the way most enamels will.

The bad:
The countershaft leaks about three drops of oil whenever we park the bike, so we watch the oil level. A new bushing, seal, and o-ring are only $32 and the replacement is easy - we just never got around to it.
The tank has a small dent in the right.

The good:
It's been taken care of and that shows!
New clutch cable (Pretty sure that we also changed the throttle cable),
Welded crashbars around the radiator as part of the bodywork,
Pelican case toolbox under the license plate,
Massively improved rear lighting, including 3 LED brake lights, & lit turn signals
Enlarged plastic cargo rack,
EagleMike doohickey with the better torsion spring,
The metal choke thimble on the carb,
New rear tire (Kenda 761) with only a couple hundred miles on it.
Improved headlight is MUCH brighter than stock.
A bottle of blue Locktite comes with it. I use the stuff on everything I unscrew.

The JC Whitney topbox is a mixture of good & bad. It's there, holds a helmet, and whatever else. However, the latch never worked well, so I drilled a hole for a lock to securely keep things shut. That worked till somebody tried to force it open and there are now two small cracks. One is at the lock hole and the other is at the right hinge. Just being up front about it and again, the box still works. JC Whitney puts these on sale now & then for 30-some bucks, so it could always be replaced cheaply.

With the updates, the price is $1700 firm. I do have the original bodywork and tank for another $400.

That '82 R100GS' has been posted for sale in various places for probably at least a year now. There have been threads on it. FWIW I have no idea what the seller thinks the GS connection is.

Hey, that's mine!

Thanks for the mention. The bike's in Maryland and I'm doing lots of travel for work, so haven't been able to show it. If people sent me a message, I really will try to get back to them.

You can pm me here on ADV.

1995 R100GSPD Classic 15700 miles. totally stock with factory bags, manual and original tool kit. Condition is 8.5/10. Bike starts easily, idles smoothly and runs perfectly. There were less than 120 of these motorcycles imported to the USA. Truly a collectible machine and a rare find in original stock condition.
You never sat on a salesman's chair at a dealership listening to the trade in expected values ... right?

I'd like to have this one:

http://richmond.craigslist.org/mcy/2029807482.html

1990 BMW K75 with fairing, 750 cc, garaged, 45,000 miles, locking hardbags, extra windshield, 2 helmets, 45 mpg. Runs well, but needs a little work. Known flaws: failed state inspection due to short in blinker in fairing, the rear shock is leaking a bit and will need replaced. Feel free to email and leave a phone number to call for more information. Note, Kelly Blue Book values this at around 2800. Will take 1800 cash OBO.
