So I just picked up a new 05 sm for $2500 bucks. I love it so far, has a lot more power than my 88 klr250 haha. But I have noticed that it takes a lot more throttle from a standstill to get it going even than my old klr. It seems to clack fairly loud if I even get close to going too slow in any given gear. Also, my klr250 used to be able to make it up any hill no matter how steep in 6th going 20-30 mph no problem. The drz wont even make it up a decent sized hill in my neighbor hood in 4th! This bike feels COMPLETELY different than my old klr so maybe it will just take some getting used to. Any input would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
