I was impressed.
OK well that is impressive. I dunno much about that motor other than it is NOT the DR650 motor, as I thought for a long time. Wonder how it stacks up against the DR motor for power...

Not to worry, it shoulda been able to make it from Sumatra to Cliff Lake without topping up

just barely

Friend of mine just picked up an '03 KLR with 11k on the clock for $2700. I just checked it out, it is SPOTLESS. Not even any scratches on the plastics. Good deal?

Not a bad deal if it's nicely farkled or if he got some good riding gear to go with it. Clean bone-stock low-mileage 1st-Gen KLRs can be found in the low $2K range these days without searchin too hard or long. I sure hope the doohickey's been done for that kinda money...and that beast oughta have new tires on it too, just sayin'

and I don't mean Shinkos

I'd consider that high for a stock 2003 KLR with no upgrades, gear, farkles, etc in Florida.

When I was looking for a KLR 2k and about 15k miles were my target numbers for an 03-ish bike.

It's got a top mounted toolbox with a wired in brake light, tool roll, highway pegs, center stand, and driving lights. And brand new Avon Gripsters. Not sure about the doohickey. Any other mods/fixes that should be addressed? Subframe bolts? Etc?

As long as he's happy then screw these chuckleheads. Besides KLR are chick magnets.

He is very happy. Plus I think KLR's might fetch a slight premium here over FL.
