Now at 11,500 miles and love my KLR. Bar end weights are the best biggest improvement on the old model.
At ~7k miles it left me stranded. The fix for no spark was to tighten the sparkplug cap onto the lead wire a 1/4 turn.
Earlier at 500 miles the vacuum on the fuel cock came off and I learned that lesson. It uses more oil when I am consistently running 75-80 on the freeway.
It's a great bike for the money. Never off road, but I know it will do great on fire roads.
Upgrades/Accessories: Denali LED lights, Coocase with integrated brake light, nerf bars, center stand and aluminum skid plate - all from Twisted Throttle. Bark-buster Storms with original bar end weights installed - best solution. MSA wind screen - wish I went taller.
