Hi guys and ladies. New to the biking scene since I last rode and fell bloody hard about 29 years ago. Also a Kawa, but a 78 Z650
Bought a 2008 KLR for a reasonable price on Fri. Needs a new rear tyre, front disc and pads to get it through roadworthy. The doo has not been done, and that will be my very next priority. The bike has 62k kms on it and still pulls?(for me anyway) like a beast.

Hoping to learn plenty from the "wise old heads" here, but more importantly, hope to enjoy the KLR aplenty

Welcome.

Metal gear sells aftermarket discs at reasonable prices.

Keep a close eye on the oil level and keep the air filter clean.

Many safe miles.

Thanks Abre.
I see my location does not show and I failed to mention it. I am in Brackenfell in Cape Town.
I have an appointment tomorrow with Jorg of Cape KLR to do the brakes. I will get a quote for the Doo at the same time.I need it done with as little hassle as possible as I still need to fit the rear tyre tomorrow as well.
