KLR 650 2002 - $2900 (Boise)

http://boise.craigslist.org/mcy/3771908855.html

Looks like a fairly well sorted out KLR. ADV inmate?


Heavily Modded KLR 650, a great deal for the money. I've owned this bike since 2004 when it had 200 miles on it, and I hate to part with it, but it is time to upgrade. Bike currently has 16,9XX miles on it. LOTS of upgrades: Happy Trails aluminum panniers (not shown), highway pegs, radiator guard. Heavy Duty Aluminum skid plate, hand guards, IMS 7 gallon fuel tank with ON-OFF-RESERVE petcock (no vacuum, you can turn the fuel off when YOU want to), LED taillight, Headlight harness upgrade, fuses upgraded, side stand switch, clutch/neutral interlock switches deactivated, Thermo-Bob thermostat, Sasquatch rear shock gold valve upgrade, gold valves/fork springs in front with an extra set of springs (cogent dynamics), WER steering damper, 2008 seat (better foam) plus original and Travelcade gel seat, fork brace, T-vent, Rox risers with aftermarket bars, and probably some other stuff that I am forgetting. It does have a headlight fairing from a Suzuki DRZ 400 on it, mated to the original fairing. This completely eliminated all buffeting associated with the stock windshield. Stock parts are available, but the windshield has been cut down. This bike has been ridden off road by a mature rider. It does have scratches on the plastic. Everyone knows that scratched plastic is instant dual-sport cred for the adventure touring crowd. Please, you need to know that you are not going to score many chicks with this bike. Well, maybe Mountain Girl up on Wolverton Mountain. If that is important to you, then go buy a Harley or a Crotch Rocket for more money and cry when you tip it over on some dirt road. It has had regular maintenance, but is currently due for a valve adjust/air filter cleaning (I haven't had time to get to these yet). The ideal owner for this bike would be someone who enjoys maintaining their own motorcycle. It will need minor stuff soon, like front brake pads, probably chain and sprockets by the end of the year if you ride a lot. Please don't contact me and ask me what is my bottom dollar, or if the bike is still for sale. If this ad is up, the bike is still for sale. You will only find out my "bottom dollar" by offering cash and beginning the negotiation process. Please contact by email, and include your phone number so I can get back to you. Weird, mis-spelled emails without a phone number will be deleted. Test rides are at my discretion.

Well, if he had Sasquatch do it, it was probably done right or darn close to it (from what I hear at least).
