Need KLR doohickey, Columbia SC

Greetings y'all....

Anybody near Columbia SC with the tools to do a doohickey for an '07? I'll watch and drink beer whilst giving instructions on how I would do it better. I know, it'll cost more that way.

Also try KLR 650 world and KLR650.net

Not that hard to do. Watch the youtube video and the like. If you can get your hands on the tools, and go slowly, it'll take a couple of hours. Watch the "gotchas".

I did 3 of them in one week after only watching the Youtube videos...pretty straight forward. The oldest of the 3, a 2005, did have some trouble pulling off the rotor. We had to get a "special" puller to get it off. As long as you read up on it and are a half-way decent mechanic, you'll be fine. The specialty made tools are nice...will save you some time and headache. I suggest purchasing them or find someone on the forum who still has them. Have fun!

Doohicky Help

I'm located just inside NC about 2 hrs ride. Did my 07 about 2years ago and still have the tools. Be glad to help you out if you want to ride it up one day when it warms up a little. No garage have to work on a concrete pad outside.

I am in Fort Mill, SC and have the tools. You are welcome to come up here and use them. I have a buddy in Columbia who needs to do it too, so maybe we could coordinate a dual change down in Columbia. Lemme know, PM me your email and we can start coordinating it.

Good advice, NOT! Trying to adjust it with weak or broken springs or broken stock doohickey is what causes motor to explodey.

I live in West Cola in Pine Ridge and I have the tools. Pm me.

Done 2 of these now. Both stock doohickeys were in fragments. The second one had ZERO tension on the chain. The strange noise we heard was the chain slapping the engine casing. A very bad situation. So I very much recommend the upgrade.
