Hmmmm... the OP is awfully quiet.

Does SDH + TN + WOOYFFWI = CoachA?

Sorry gentlemen. Long day at school today, so just got on. Thank you for the welcome. I'm actually wanting to get a KLR 650 at some point. Right now have a Nomad and an LT in the garage. Momma isn't keen on 3 but when I can swing it, it will be something along the lines of the KLR.

KLR is a good choice!

A certain ineptizoid on this forum has quite a few miles on his KiLleR.

I guess all the abuse you put on that 08 must be tugging on your heart strings.

I should have put a disclaimer on that one... it should read... KLR is a good choice! just not for me

Don't see the connection. I have been reading this forum for years, and have never wanted a KLR.

I know a few guys that have ridden the KLR on some epic trips. They sound fairly reliable and easy to maintain. Still doing homework on different bikes though, so I could be swayed in another direction. All I know is that the LT is a great bike but dang, the maintenance on them is $$$ if you can't do it yourself.

Yup. Had the fuel line that feeds from the fuel filter split, had to pull the tank to pull that assembly. Then had to source the line, which needs to be "immersion" rated. Getting pretty good at pulling the tupperware though :-)

I've owned 2 KLR 650's. Last one was a 2008. Never a problem with either. Never did the Doo or any other fear inspired updates either. Changed the fluids and tires as required and drove the piss out of both of the them. Nothing ever broke. I wouldn't hesitate to get a 3rd KLR 650 someday.
