Most of us are KLR owners....I'm waiting until I see the words "I'm buying!".

Bah! countershaft seal started leaking. Guess I'm bikeless for a few days until I can order the parts. chain wasn't too tight...not sure what the cause would be...old age I guess.

On the bright side, I got my heated grips installed this weekend. As I gassed up to test them out Saturday night I notiiced a large puddle of oil under the bike.

Just make sure when you pull the bindel rotor, grease the seal other wise the sludge pump will blow oil back into the battery and short out the contacts on the muffler bearings........

Can I help

I've been on 4 wheels all week. Installed heated grips last Saturday, gassed up in the evening to try them out and sprung a big oil leak. Parts arrived today and I've just buttoned her up and it seems to be holding. Countershaft seal was leaking (no, the chain isn't too tight) although the nut holding on the sprocket was only held on by the sprocket guard.
