Hi Marnitz,

Welcome here! How many km on your bike?

Basic service items you will need to do soon:
  • As said already - ALWAYS keep an eye on the oil level in your sight glass!
  • Ensure air filter is clean
  • Give it fresh oil
  • Change oil filter
  • New spark plug
  • Chain and sprockets (ensure they are still in service limits)
  • Fork oil replacement
  • Tires

Here's a list of bigger maintenance things you can do/keep in mind (for km intervals refer to manual/internet):
  • Find out if the doo has been done
  • Grease the rear linkage and suspension
  • At some stage you will need to do the bearings (wheel/linkage/steering head)
  • Check whether the cam chain and balancer chains are still within spec
  • Check valve clearances
  • Clean oil screen

If you can swing a spanner then the KLR is a cheap bike to run! Enjoy!
