KLR Doohickey Database
« on: October 16, 2007, 09:13:19 am »
Guys lets use this thread as a database of how many doohickeys were done, at what km's, what dates, what was wrong ito - doo, spring, other (loose rotor etc) and a general column (eg Chinese doohickey didn't fit).

I'll start

No, in most cases you re-use your old one.  Just make sure you don't mess it up.

That's a link I mustn't forget. I think it must be a required question that you have to be be able to answer before being allowed to join the forum..

2006 model, probably around 20000 on the clock.

Eaglemike doo, spring replaced.
No problem with old setup but then I was the only one to touch it.

New gasket and rotor bolt.

no I am not happy ..... I really thought that I had found something new to buy for my bike  ;D

there's a guy in PE wanting to sell a KLR600 and he mentioned a balancing chain problem. Would this maybe be something to doo with the doo? the bike has 18000km on the clock I think.

You can certainly have one, but you will have to hang it on your keyring.
Basically it is a little piece of metal that is made by Kawasaki in two parts and welded together, it is also quite thin, the upgrade is a bit thicker and machined out of one piece of metal. It needs adjusting every now and then and sometimes bends then breaks, then causes lots of kark in the engine.
Groenie can explain it's exact purpose in the engine.

Thanks JM

I actually have a genuine interest in the KLR. It's a wonderful bike ...I often go on rides with up to 10 KLR's. The joke is that they like to stand i don't

... and I am trying to get someone to buy one. She's actually pretty enough for me to want to doo stuff .... KLR or not.

bye now. I'm off to those other links you gave.
