Congrats on the KLR

When the doohickey gets done, also have the it checked for deep hole syndrome. It's an inexpensive fix.

Enjoy the bike!

Thanks that is on my list to have checked.  :thumleft:

He means you ar going to start farkling the bike and make it your's



That is natural offcourse yes, thought he meant upgrade bike, as I just sold my GSA and I am of the opinion that no bike is an upgrade or downgrade from another, but suited to a specific purpose. Miles of smiles :)

:sip: That sounds good and it looks good too, enjoy the bike. But, you will upgrade some time in the future. (that is normal)  :3some:
Thanks
What do you mean upgrade?

BMW 1200/ADV / Re: Starter motor bendix?
« on: Yesterday at 07:56:00 am »
Mine had a bendix issue, but it didnt click, it did not engage and just spun the starter motor.

That is repairable and I have the bendix in stock for that.

I think you did repair mine last year if I recall :)

Collected the KLR tonight.

Test rode it yesterday and feels and sounds good.

Paid R 30k, new tyres front and back, brakes front and back, 16t front sprocket and new rear sprocket and chain.

Doohicky paid for, need to take it to get it installed.

Not a bad deal I think?

Just needs a nice new touring screen from war eagle and maybe an Alu topbox to replace the plastic one.

Post a pic or two, maybe I know the bike and a bit of it's history

Okay so bit of an update, doo not done, but paid for and awaiting import through local bike shop. So as soon as it lands, they will install.

Pic attached, thanks Groenie.

So 50k km and no doo done, not sure how that affects the motor.

But seems in a very good condition, with new tyres, brakes and chain and sprockets. So very little to spend for the next couple k km at least.

With your forum name, Im not sure how to answer this !  :o



With your profile picture not sure Ill trust what you say anyway...  :o

The other thing to keep in mind on such a cheap bike is the consumables. I assume you are paying somewhere between R28k and R40k, which means that drive chain, sprockets, brake pads and tires (altogether R3k-R5k) can be a significant percentage (8-15%) of initial cost. Keep this in mind in your negotiation.

New plastics are also very expensive (relative to the bike's cost).

Kawasaki KLR 600/650 / Looking at buying first KLR, what to look out for
« on: August 13, 2018, 06:57:09 am »
Its a 2009 with just over 50000 km.

What to look out for?

Primarily need something to commute with at the moment but will be used for a fair bit of weekend gravel travels.

Have always wanted a KLR so now is my chance.

Clothing and Equipment / Re: Bell MX9 Adventure helmet opinions
« on: May 24, 2018, 08:49:14 am »
Also have MX9 Adventure MIPS helmet. Awesome, comfy etc

Also bought a black tinted visor with mine.

Mine just had a bit of squeaking at first, think the visor was rubbing against the helmet.

But now its quiet.

I have never heard of rivet nuts before, so had to google this.
There is an easy install video on youtude showing how to install without any special tools.
This was a new experience me too. Looks like a really simple thing to install. Just need to find the nuts.

Planning a Ride / Swaziland Border crossing
« on: January 29, 2018, 08:11:47 pm »
Looking at routes for a trip in March, and thinking of doing a short ride through Swaziland.
Enter - Mahamba and exit - Golela

Getting some conflicting info on border crossing requirements.

What is required?

Is it full requirements like Namibia etc or is it like Lesotho?

Thanks guys, sorry I had to cut it short.

Enjoyed the railway service road a lot even though it felt like I might run out of luck at any time! Need to do more of that type of riding.
