    I never had any respect for the KLR at all until a friend invited me on an adventure ride thru south west Colorado. He let me ride a borrowed KLR650 and I really came to appreciate what it does. Just like I always thought, it's a terrible dirt bike, and is certainly not a strong road bike by any means. What it does well is both, inexpensively. 
    Now I'm hooked on an entirely new form of 2 wheeled entertainment. Adventure riding!

    Just got it a coupe weeks ago, and love it so far. It's not hard to understand why it won the 250 2 stroke shoot out in 06. Just re-jetted and added an IMS fuel tank and Scott's damper. Hope to get a Pro-Moto billet kick stand and Hyde Racing skid plate soon.

    Update: 6/23/2015
    Love this bike even more after 6 months. Looking forward to a JD jetting kit for 6k elevation, just to rid it of some exhaust spooge. The Hyde Racing plastic skid plate is doing an excellent job of protecting the frame and engine cases. It's gouged up pretty good and still working fine.
    Update 9/1/15
    Did a top end rebuild with all OEM parts about 4 engine hours ago. It was definitely due for one. Everything was good, just needed piston and rings, of course top end bearing and wrist pin. The replaced parts were OEM, don't know for sure but I'm thinking they were the original parts. Compression sure helps the bottom end power. lol. Changed from Motul 800 to Motul 710, what a difference in spooge. Same jetting went from plastered rear fender to a few drops here and there. Again more compression gets some credit here also.
    9 months in, I LOVE MY RM!
