Good Morning All

My name is Jaco and new to the Clan. I recently(3 weeks back) bought a 2008 KLR 650 and enjoying every minute of it. I am from the East Rand.........whispering...Brakpan......to be exact.

I am still learning this amazing machine and figuring out what she likes and don't like. My wife calls it my skelmpie as I spent every minute I can either on the bike, looking for accessories on the net or giving the bike a nice polish. I truly enjoy my bike and can't believe how comfy it is.

I see that there is a meeting on Fridays in Woodmead and will definitely make a plan to come and have a coffee sometime and meet some of you.

To everyone on the road be safe and enjoy

Jaco

Welcome. Many safe miles.

The 2008 silver frames unfortunately have a reputation of burning oil. The exhaust cam is the first to suffer when the levels goes too low.

As Abre said. Most KLRs seem to have a thirst for oil - some as much as 500 ml/500 km! Topping up the oil periodically costs (almost) nothing, yet too many KLRs have lost their top ends due to owner laziness/ignorance.
