Hello there
I spent 4 months looking for the right bike to get back onto after not riding for 20 years. Settled on a Yellow and Black KLR, 2011 with 27000 on the clock. Nice to be on the saddle again. Commuting for the time being to get my 47 year old rusty biking bones and confidence back in order. A couple of questions. The bike is in good shap back chain and back spreocket need replacing. I dont think the Doohicky is done so thats an extra needing attention. The throttle is a bit of a hit and miss on initial twist as it has a lag on twist then from nothing to 1500rpm, an on and off throttle response and not a smooth transition.

So I need to find a decent service centre in Randburg area ideally, or in the JHB north and north western suburbs. Help is appreciated

Now the exhuast. The bike has and Akropovic pipe that has a good part of the guts removed. it is LOUD. To the point that when I start up the nieghbours alarm goes off. I'd like to go back a bit, slower maybe, but less obnoxious. Maybe back to stock pipe or I would appreciate recommendations

My cat likes the bike!!!
