KLR Miles: Check-in

Hello, this kind of thing may have been done, if so I apologize and please direct me in the correct direction. It would be nice to get a record of everybodies total mileage on their KLR.

Mine is a 2008 with a total of 14,000 miles

1995 - ~50,000 miles on the day a Ford Explorer took her out
1999 - ~130,000 miles (had to replace the speedometer a couple of times so do not know exact mileage). Currently rebuilding a 1992 engine and will be back on the rode this spring.

Just shy of 30K on my 1995.


It's got a ways to go to catch the R90. 284K on that.

34000 on my odo,but I've had to repair my speedo a couple of times. I went 5 months without it so I would guess my 06 has 40000 or so.

I've got a 06 with only 20k on it...these 100k + posts are unbelievable. Part of me wants to do the 685 kit on my bike, and part of me wants to just see how far I can take the stock engine. damn, 100k is alot of miles on a single cylinder dual sport. Thanks for posting and sharing those big mileage numbers....

I've had the 685 kit sitting in my garage for about a year, and I'm trying really hard to adhere to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." approach. My bike runs great, doesn't burn oil, and is really smooth, so I might just leave it alone. I'm going to do a compression/leakdown test in the next few days to get an idea of the engine's condition, Those results will give me an idea of whether or not the kit stays in the box for a while longer.

Just recently got mine with a tad over 13,000 miles on it. Hope it sees 100,000 more.

I have a 2004 with 62k miles, and just picked up a 2003 with 8k. That strategy is what I'd planned all along, to stay with the same make/model bike in order to keep the mods I like. The '04 is still going strong, but a lower mileage bike will have a greater chance of being more reliable on a long solo trip.
