And a hell of a lot more costly to replace panels

I concur. But that said I don't intend on falling off any time soon :p

Nice KLR! Looks so nice and neat still...when does the modding begin?

The tank must be a bit lighter than the stock one too.

I think I must come and check yours out sometime - I'm interested on making my Fugly look less... Fugly :imaposer:

I think Beebop may be right on the money.

Best would be is to (if possible) lift up the rear wheel, then tape a pencil onto the swingarm with the nib just touching the disc. Spin the wheel and take note if the distance between the pencil and disc changes.

It may give you some indication of any disc warp and it's a quick 5 minute jobbie you can do at home :thumleft:

Good spot :thumleft:

My girlfriends' father's R1100GS - also in red, albeit a much brighter red that makes my KLR envious.

I really like the look of the black plastics with the plastic tank. What capacity is it? Are your plastics painted at all?

Braaap!

I had to laugh...just yesterday there was a bloke walking past our offices on the pavement (we are at quite a busy intersection) and a GSXR with NO pipes came screaming past and let off the throttle as he took the corner, backfiring and popping as he decelerated.

The poor oke got such a fright, probably thinking he was being shot at by some militant force, that all he could muster was 'Jou f*kken moer!' :imaposer:

When I'm on the 1100 I cannot resist giving it a bark every morning that I ride through it.

That's me whenever I pass underneath overhead bridges (the one beneath Berry's Corner is awe-inspiring) :ricky:

I'd love to try it with a SV1000s or a VTR1000 with some nice Akra pipes on :biggrin:

I used to love the power wheelies on my old XT550 :biggrin:

I do admire a nice, controlled wheelie done properly but sadly I will not ever emulate that on the KLR

I just read the thread from start to finish. That was epic :biggrin:

Thanks for the laugh and for sharing it. Made my dreary Wednesday afternoon much better :thumleft:

Sadly work and everything else has eaten into my forum time but I am working on it ;)

Thanks for the detailed write-up, Cox! I have been following since the start (stealthily, in the background like a submarine or something) and I'm glad you are up and running again!

But do tell; where can I find this thread about the late night washing that I keep on reading about? :D

Enjoy her and may she give you many more miles and smiles :thumleft:

Oi! Bad luck, sorry to hear - hope she can be repaired with minimal $$$!

Somewhere on the clan site there are part numbers for Echlin car car ones that fit.

Dawie,

I've checked but the part mentioned FS2037 seems to be for the later versions and won't work on my 2004 model. I have heard a 1991 Honda Civic one fits and does the job just fine but has phantom voltage across the sensor which will eventually drain your battery if left standing for too long :(

I wonder if that is down to a change in design when compared to the first gen KLR650?

Mine used to get up to the halfway mark pretty quick (1km give or take). Idling for another three minutes afterwards would usually be enough to make the fan switch on. Only once have I seen the needle move up past 2/3 mark which was some very tight single track riding in the middle of summer with no wind.

Any 1st gen (19voetsek to 2007) Kwakka radiator fan switches available?



They are scarce as hen's teeth and all my leads are taking me to the newer model ones. The stealership wants a kidney along with a few loose rands for one :patch:

Lekker man, matt black! Where is the build thread?

No such thing unfortunately as this 'project' has been dragging on for years. But...progress is being made :ricky:

Ouch. I flinched...just a little bit.

He seemed amazingly calm throughout the process. Amazing what adrenalin does! But I guess it was a bit eina afterwards...

Ek dink daar mag dalk iets fout wees want hierdie fred wys nie op my 'New Replies' tab nie. Ek sien wel die ou goed van jarre terug :patch:

Dalk 'n teken ek moet bietjie meer aktief hierso wees :peepwall:
