Bummer.

The good news is I think you can isolate the problem with the info you gave. Gonna guess something to do with the clutch work.

Pull the cover and show us what you see.

I'll list parts as they sell instead of putting a whole bike on here. The motor is running, wheels are in good condition, aftermarket skidplate, green plastics.

Let me know what you need.

Great campground for groups

I want to put in a plug here for Dave and Laurie at Timberland Campground in Shelburne, New Hampshire. It was the mystery destination for our 2011 Magical Mystery Tour (MMT) this past weekend and they treated us very well. We had about 40 people and the area they gave us (open field plus surrounding individual campsites) would easily have handled 60, probably more. Dave threw a fire ring into the middle of it and brought us wood. Water and electricity were available at most of the sites (not that we needed the electricity), the bathrooms were clean, the showers large and clean, the swimming pool a big hit on a warm Saturday afternoon and just the right temperature. The cost (per person basis) was very reasonable. If you have plans for a large (or small!) group ride 'n' camp-out, you should definitely put them on your list of possible destinations. (And of course, there's lots of good riding and things to see in the area.)

Hopefully some of the inmates here can help you with parts etc.

What do you think happened? Overtightened? Undertightened or just "Shit Happens"?

Hope you get it fixed soon.

Hop/Ev Sunday morning...

I am planning (hoping) to be at Hopkinton Sunday morning. In the parking lot at 8am. Probably going to stick to the easier stuff and/or set up something of a track in one of the sandpits to try to find long-lost dirt skills rather than killing myself on the tough stuff. Or at least that's my plan (subject to change).

NikonVT, sorry to see the carnage! Here's a link to a complete assembly. I don't know the condition or year, but might be worth looking into.

Try searching "KLR650 clutch cover" in fleabay. Lots of 'em. Good luck!

Thanks for the input guys. Tomorrow, well today, is my bday so I'm buying another KLR...

06 (mine 04) with 7700 miles and several upgrades. For what I'm gonna pay for it - it's worth it and I'll part out the KLR - who needs parts.
