So, you did it! You bought a “new to you” Kawasaki KLR 650. Woohoo! Congrats 🙂 Here is a small list of some of the free things to check out that will help avoid some issues down the road. Especially seeing how hard we can be on these bikes 😉
Headed home from work and I spot a new trail. It got me thinking about how great it is to ride an ADVenture bike 🙂
A wash, New tires, Inspect wheel bearings, Lube the rear suspension linkage, Inspect and clean chain. Everything complete and ready to roll!
So the question was, If I bought a new KLR 650 today, what would be the first 5 Items I would buy for the bike? It’s hard to narrow it down to 5 but by trying to keep the average rider in mind and sticking with bolt on’s I finally have my list!
After posting the video on what my first 5 upgrades would be to the KLR 650 I thought I would share what I think is important for the next 5 upgrades from stock to make this bike great as an Adventure bike.
In this video I show how I have my Mosko Moto Reckless 80 packed for the trip and some of the gear I’m taking along.
