yeah that last one is a long story. but even if its just that with the bad journels the head is not worth throwing money at.

08 was the the year i know had the oil burning issues.


i don't want this subject to take over your guys' Inland Empire ride thread.

talk to 2old2race about his 08.

i've talked to folks first hand about their oil issues and read numerous threads over on KLR650 . net

Matt, I'd like to join you. I've loaded up with the with my camping setup and would like to try it out before the DV ride. Any hill climbs or rock steps on the route? I'd like to see how the bike does loaded up .

Sito, I'll be at the Shell at Huntington and Monterrey, next to Armstrongs, at 7:10a if you want to ride out together...or I may truck it, dunno.

Cool. Rather than pack "actual" camping gear, I put 3gal of water in the Coyote with my sleeping bag, and tent/pad on the back. So if things get spirited I can dump the water and instantly lose about 24lb
