Yes the winter months are here in good old WI, so that means another project. This will indeed be a project as you will see from the pics. I used to have a newer 2009 KLR 650 and did most of the common modes to it. I didn't like how the new wind screen and jammer on it was, so this older model does not have that.

DSCN0013 by Tim Brown, on Flickr Here is the real issue with all these bikes. Sometimes you get a good factory one that will not eat oil, other times you get one like this had to be and eat lots of oil. The PO didn't check it and the exhaust came just give up at the decompression device. DSCN0020 by Tim Brown, on Flickr Going to pull the valve cover off, pug and see how bad things really are. I will guess I will need the new kit, and some hot cams for this. I am not trying to make a fast bike, I just want a beater for the property and maybe a short trip now and then.
