KLR with blown engine, plenty farkled SOLD

08 Kawasaki KLR 650 with 22,000 miles for sale. One of the 08 oil burners, wich I happily poured oil into as it burned it, until....Ker-Chunk. Not sure what blew, but a few high speed runs (80mph) blew all the oil and....no compression, no nothing.

New seals in fork, with progressive springs, rebuilt, revalved and heavier spring to stock rear shock. Low mount front fender.

Farkles include: TomTom rider GPS, Skid plate, Crashbars, Rear pannier rack with hard cases, Givi Top Box, Handelbar Risers, off road foot pegs, Tool tube, Madstad Windscreen and the crowning glory: Aerostich Tank Panniers!

$1000 will get you all those farkles and a titled KLR that needs an engine.

Cant seem to post pictures to this forum, email me for photos.

Re: KLR with blown engine, plenty farkled

This is a GREAT deal.

Heed this warning for anyone who is going to put an engine in this bike. DO NOT put another 08 or 09 in it. Anything else and you will be happy. I bought one exactly like this and loved it after I put a 2010 engine in it. After doing some research it happens/happened to a bunch of these bikes made in 2008 and 2009.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Exactly what I was thinking....just not sure I could do a KLRsys as good as yours. I was talking about your bike to Erik two days ago. I thought when I rode yours, this is what Kawasaki should have evolved the KLR into

Great price for a bike with a supercharger!

Oh, I guess blown has at least one other meaning ...
