    Gasoline octane ratings for KLR 650

    Knowledgable owners on another KLR forum say Regular is fine - anything higher is just money wasted. Works for me. My KLR650 runs fine on 87.

    Klr 650 Mpg

    I get an average of 50MPG - I'm a Big Boy at 6' 4" and 350 Pounds. So, with any cargo, I keep this bike at about it's max load limit. Being near-50ish, I don't bounce like I used to, so I'm easy on the throttle and don't do extreme off-road stuff.

    Are the only rider in the family?

    Hi. I'm a semi-newbie getting back into riding a motorcycle after a near-thirty year absence. Last road up to high school graduation, then went into the service - just got my new Kawasaki KLR650 in June. Nobody else in my immediate family rides, though I'm working on my Bro-in-Law. I ride mostly commuting to/from work, and starting to explore the forest roads. No interest in extreme dirt - 48 year old bones snap easier . . .
