Everytime I pass by a dirt road on my Kawasaki Versys 650, I realized the loss as I cud not take the 650 Versys with road tyres into the trails...even if I cud, it wud not be fun....

Getting the KLX 250 has allowed me to be more free....and freedom is why most people ride a bike...I'm glad I got the bike, even though I had to spend a small fortune...

KTMRack wud know...as he knows bikes in Malaysia are fairly expensive...

Hey, what's stopping you from coming back here?

Saw your post...awesome....except for the snow, the trail is quite similar to the ones my buddies and I used to take.

Do you remeber Kedah Peak? (Situated in Kedah, past penang, , past Sungai petani...the highest peak in Kedah state?

Picturewise, it is almost the same, with those long god technical climbs (i love technical climbs).

Just my kinda ride.....now u make me wish I can ride with you....hahahahaha

Hey ricky, how much weight do you have in that rear box? Just aheads up. I had my rear fender overloaded and the subframe broke off just behind the angled supports. Keep an eye on it. Go Green 😛

Tha's a good feedback. This means that I have to keep an eye on the subframe.

CK,

do you by any chance have a pic of where exactly the sub frame broke.

If we can keep data, it could be claimable. Pls put up a pic.

Rgds,

TW

I doubt it would be claimable. Since it was not designed for nothing but a fender and taillight. Here are some pictures. Luckily I found a weld shop in Moab. They inserted solid steel rods into the tubing as far as possible. Very strong now.

Thanks for the pic. Actually , in Malaysia, if we can prove that the same damage did occur on another same model, then we would get Kawasaki Malaysia to get Kawasaki Japan to replace.

My mech who owns a ZX9R found a crack. I then helped him to search the nnet and found a similar case. We attached the pics of the same cases and in the end he got a brand new frame.

Thanks dude,

Faz.

Thanks for the warning CK! I probably had 10 lbs in it during that ride.

Tokwan - I go motorcycle camping all the time in the US. Just rode all dirt roads across colorado, Utah, Nevada and California.

I haven't done much camping here but I'd like to. It's funny but the reason I don't/haven't in Malaysia is the tempature 👍 I've often camped at 10 deg below 0 in the USA but I'm intimidated to camp in 80 deg nights :blah:.

I know some great trail riding around Selangor. I'd love to find some longer dirt rides that follow the mountains ie genting,fraser, cameron,maxel areas...

A fellow KLX250 rider broke his subframe this past weekend on the Barstow-to-Las Vegas section of that ride. He carries a 1 gallon gas tank back there, runs it dry, then switches over to the main tank. Even that 10lbs was too much for this subframe, especially when going relatively fast over sandy whoops. Be careful if you use the rear for anything of significant weight.

If you plan on carrying any weight back there you might as well cut the subframe and sleeve it with solid steel rod. Save a lot of heart ache on the trail. You can see by the pics it is thin tubing.

Ricky,

I do mostly in the Northern Region but do sometimes camp in Camerons and Fraser. Janda Baik is quite ok.
