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
Well then, you pretty much have covered all the moving parts up front.... I am sure your fork oil will look nasty too, mine was and the bike had 5K on it...

I officially joined the KLR club as i picked up my green '13 yesterday. Love it so far, i feel much more confident on a bike that fits me 6'2, last bike was an ER6N. First upgrade i think will be the zero gravity double bubble to push the wind over my head. Hoping to do a lengthy trip at the end of this month, possibly taking in some gravel!

Welcome. Love the '13 color schemes.

Check out the Madstad Adventure screen while you're shopping. Best unit out there.

New 2013 KLR

Brought home my new 2013 a few days ago and in between working and family duties have put about 400 miles on it. Awesome bike! First upgrades are Barkbusters and crashbars as this bike will be seeing some rough stuff soon. Annual two week ride in CO and UT coming up in a few weeks. Usually do the ride on my RMZ250 or one of the kids spare KTM's. It'll be a slower pace for sure on the KLR. Thinking of doing an Iron Butt 1000 before I go to get some miles on the bike. So far so good.

New (to me) 2008. 45000 kms on her. Been on a few rides outside the city for exploring. My first bike, and am having lots of fun (and learning lots too). Just passed my MSF course last weekend. Found some dirt up north, will be checking it out on Sunday.

Dropped her a few times since this first photo was taken, mostly in my backyard and once in a parking lot. Cracked the right shroud, fixed her up with some JB Weld. Flushed coolant, topped off brake fluids, cleaned the air filter, new oil / filter, replaced the clutch lever I broke..ordered the doo and spring, saving up for some crash bars, considering different tires as the MT21s are a bit too dirt-oriented for me...uhm...where did all my money go?

Ok, KLR probably has the most farkles available. I have done a bunch. Now its time for a slip on exhaust.

Whickh one and can I just put it on or is a jet kit and airbox mod necessary?

Thanks.

Help replacing the gas cap key tumbler set

First off, a Happy 4th to ya'll.

I am working on a fella's 2006 KLR that has a bum ignition switch, so it's being replaced. Since the key set is also used for the helmet lock and gas cap, those need to be swapped out.

Helmet lock has been replaced, but am running into a problem with the new tumbler set for the gas cap. I would have thought that once the cap was disassembled the old tumbler set would easily pop right out. That's not the case.

Any words of wisdom for getting out the old tumbler set so I can get the new one in?

TIA

I usually use a dent puller when I pull ignition. It works well for popping door locks too.

Well I ordered an H7 HID kit from HID nation for my '13. Don't know if one or two bulbs will come with it. I am assuming 2, but for only 60 bucks not holding my breath for a true HID light. Looking to reduce wattage used by the headlights. If its two then I will replace both bulbs but will lose ability to flash my bright so debating that on right now. If I can use each bulb separately than the wife's bike will get the other low beam.
