Just Purchased A KLR 650

Postby ScottyBoy » Tue Nov 13, 2012 11:10 pm

Well almost, just got to go pick it up and pay for it.

1988/89 Tengai
Totally standard apart from a new Hagon shock :tup: and a scotoiler
Pictures look really good, no dents, no rips in the seat etc
4 months MOT left

Less money than the cc it has :D

They were well known for having top end oil feed problems, so any noises or rattles walk away.

Looks OK you don"t get much for £600 now days although i got two 650 pegaso"s for £440 ;) I had the new 600 when they came out took it up around scotland and all over didn"t give much bother even after i wheelied the shite out of it ,only thing gave trouble was the stupid side stand switch cutting the bike out now and again for no reason.my mate then bought the 650 and we took it two up through England into France and into spain two up with camping gear (f..k we were stupid back then) he did a bit of motorbike courier on it then sold it on had no trouble at all with his :tup:

Cheers Spen, i am buying for my mate to ride then probably sell it on again in the Spring, no fun greenlaning on your own :( We ride road bikes together in the better months ( zx10r's) but they are now safely tucked away hibernating for the winter :tup:

If you are going laning on it then you need to take a rucksack to bring the bodywork home in.
Cheap bike & they are a good tourer for a thumper. The have a big following in the states from what I can tell & I remember them when they where new in the showrooms back when I was riding my first DR600 with its manly kickstart :shock:

I read a good book about a guy who went travelling on one & got kidnapped by Rebels.... best watch where you go on it :think:
