Klr 650

Recommended Posts

Short and sweet,

we are not new at bike riding...we are new to dual sport bikes KLR 650.

We have 2...09 ( wifes' ) 08 ( mine )

09 lowered 2" w/ dog bones...foot pegs drag on asphalt if to frisky.

Still handles good off road. Good or bad choice....advice?

The 08 riden daily through town and on interstate (12 mi. ) 65-75 mph.

would like to change exhaust/ jet kit / and breather....maybe change the sporkets some. Our off road riding consist off semi to moderate rough trails/creek beds and some hill climbing this is done for fun no competition.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Freedom Riders

I also own a KLR 650. However mine is a mint 1988. An extremely good source for mods and tech info for the KLR can be found at KLRWorld.com.

Hope this helps.

What ScottC said. I own an 07. Maybe go to a 14 tooth countershaft.(stock is 15) It will up your rpm's about 400 at the same speed. Pretty heavy bike for hillclimbing though, unless moderate.
