  1. I have an '04 KLR 650 and would like to replace the rear fender on this bike also, but with the european model KLR rear fender,..check it: http://www.kawasaki.fr/motos/trail_enduros/klr650/index.htm Anyone have an idea how I could get parts from this bike in the states? Or is there a websight I could check out for european replacement parts?

    Question for KLR 650 owners.......

    The gas tank and shrouds are nicer too.

    Question for KLR 650 owners.......

    I bought mine in May,..love it, but hated the radiator shrouds and the widdle windshield so I took 'em off. It looks more agressive and a little "rogue" now, but after the re-gear, jet kit anna Big Gun pipe, its walkin' and talkin'. Ever seen the europian' klr? Love the straight rear fender.

    Tragedy Strikes a New DualSport Rider

    That "is" some scary stuff man. I've been a dualsport rider off and on since the 80's and own a KLR650 now. I also work 2nd shift (3-11) and often work over 2 to 4 hours, so I get off between 1:00 and 3:00a.m. My point is, at 2:45 a.m., drunk OR sober, you butt is gonna be tired. It doesn't matter if you have slept all day. Lack of sleep has simular effects as intoxication. Reaction time is everything now that we have so many people sharing our roads. Watch out for the idiots whether you're on a street or dualsport bike. Another factor is daylight and night riding. Roads you "know" during the day aren't always the roads you remember at night.

    There can be only one

    Thanks for the suggestions. With your input, it looks like my next bike will be either the 450 or the 525. I wasn't taking the weight factor of the XR650R into account until I saw a couple posts here that made me realize, I already have the KLR which is somewhat heavy for the more serious trail riding I'd like to do. However, I do plan on keeping it for awhile, so something lighter "would" feel, and handle much better. I especially liked the "nod to the 525" post. (Special Note: To Treehuggersuck, dude, I really meant no offence by my reply on your post. If you saw it and "were" offended, you honestly have my appology.) Thanks MrJeep for getting me thinking more of the weight factor, and again to everyone else for your help. I'll be posting a poll on the 450 and 525, hope everyone will help me out, especially the people that gave the thumbs up on the 650.

    Newbie quotes!

    I'm sure I'll get slammed for this comment, so I'll just have to leave myself wide ass open for the "experienced" TT members. I hope in this forum, you ppl don't think all "noobs" are new to the sport and hobby of riding bikes in general. Being a Newbie to discussion "here" in no way makes everyone an inexperienced rider. I started riding when I was 5 and 31 years later, I found this forum. I can't understand how people with over a thousand posts here ever have time to ride! Just an oppinion. Thanx.

    Two Wheel drive bikes???

    i'll stick with traditional rear wheel chain drive only. seems like the abuse a 2wd bike would take would just leave you with more to fix. but i guess thats what they said about 4wheel drive and front wheel drive, huh.

    Funny names

    worked with a guy named Richard Horney. As you know "Dick" is used for "richard", as Bob is for Robert. So when this guy fills out any legal papers (last name first, first name last) he is Horney, Dick.

    read this!

    :D Thanks for proving my point about NASCRAP. And BTW, that's not a personal attack on anyone unlike your reply. FYI, untill last week my sig read "Choppers are to motorcycling what PRO Wrestling is to sports" then someone on another board suggested that I change it to this. Have a good day burning yourself up with all that anger pal, you failed to anger me. James. A little rough on newbies here aren't they? Hey, I'm paying dues myself. "Can't we just all get along?" lmao
