Wow! Since it was a spare KLR, that's a great trade!

2008KLR Rear Turn signal

Does anyone have/know where I could find the cheapest prices for a stock/OEM rear turn signal for my 2008? Like an idiot I dropped my bike in the driveway and crushed the left rear turn signal. I've thought about just buying an aftermarket LED light but I'd rather keep the bike looking stock as I will probably be selling it in the next year.

KLRx5

So I finally got to ride a '12 Super Tenere a customer brought in our shop today. He noticed I was drooling all over, hehe, and told me to take her out after I was done servicing it and give her some taters. I take her out on the main highway n' hit hard after a mile or so(in standard mode). She topped at 127mph! I'm thinking wow this thing's got some juice! So I turn around bout 4 miles out or so and realize I only had it in standard mode. So I flip it to Sport mode and take off again. OMG! It's like it gave it two more cylinders! I know why there's a good step up between the seats now. To hold your ass on when you hammer it! So there I was giggling like a school girl when I got back to the shop thinking I will have one someday, but my trusty, slow, can't get outa it's own shadow somedays KLR will have to do for now;) You can't even begin to compare the cost of ownership between the two anyway...I know this didn't have much to do with KLR's, just thought I'd give my two cents on the Super Tenere beings they're so B.A.

I traded a Tiger XC in on the KLR and yes, on the freeway I miss the extra gumption.
The KLR by far is more comfortable for long (slow) trips, which is what I do most of the time.

I've owned many KLR's and currently have an 01' and a SuperT. The ST is very composed, comfy ergo's like the KLR and purrs like a kitten at 75. If all I did was fast open road with the occasional gravel road, I'd only have the ST, but in the "real" world (slow traffic, bumpy roads, blasting down alleys, parking lots, rocky inclines, etc...) I find I pull the KLR out of the garage a lot more than the ST.

my $0.02

So I know you guys encourage us noobs to wrench on our own bikes, but I feel way too intimidated to try and mess with my front end. Im not very good at putting things together correctly.

I have a fork seal with a slow leak and am about to take my bike in to a shop to fix both seals. My question is what else should I have them either check out/inspect or work on. I know I want new fork oil as well and the steering stem checked out. What other critical area should I have them look at?

You almost had it in your first sentence.. Have you thought about Intiminators or some other valving and/or some better springs? While you are there.....

Bikemaster makes cheap replacements that are identical to OEM.

negative. I've seen people talk about them but don't know much about them or their benefits.
Im not looking for any fancy stuff just want it all checked out and in proper order. The PO was also the original owner but I have a feeling he didn't maintain things well. When I did the brake fluid flush it looked like the original fluids... Its an 04 Lol

Looks like a first gen turn signal, not a 2nd gen..
