  1. All in time....there's 10 bikes in the driveway to work around.
  2. Been knocking this around for a while and these are just sitting here, so there's no sense in hanging on. Both motorcycles are in northern Pennsylvania, but I've been known to drive around a bit for the right incentive. 2006 Kawasaki KLR650 in faded matte red. 11,000 miles of non-pristine riding make this a normal pack horse. It has all the patina of normal KLR650 use.....scrapes, scratches, minor bends, missing non-essential body panels and surface rust. It starts, runs, and rides on nearly new rubber. The fork seals DO need replacing. $1750 1993 Kawasaki KLR650 in white and blue. 30,000 miles of non-pristine riding make this a normal pack horse. It has all the patina of normal KLR650 use.....scrapes, scratches, minor bends, missing non-essential body panels and surface rust. It starts, runs, and rides on half-used rubber. This one has Pro-Taper bars and a creative choke modification. The fork seals DO need replacing. $1250 Both bikes are quite stock, and to the best of my knowledge have never had dujiggers, hinkybobs, or bullgonger mods. If you and a brother, buddy, son, or long-legged wife/daughter want to share some trail riding, dust-eating bonding time, an attractive package price might be available. I also have a clean running Lifan 200 available that's much shorter if that fits your bonding needs better, and it too comes with a street legal title just like the two above. Message me here or by PM for more details. There's a story as to why I have these, but I spared you all the drivel. If you really want to know, send me a note.
  3. John, is this bike known to you, or did you just find it on CL?
  4. This is a little high for the "good used" price, but he has quite a few extras, including the bags. Used prices seem to run $5000 to $7000, with retail about $1000 more and the dreamers up near 10k. Its definitely a niche market motorcycle, but what motorcycle isn't? The size of your niche helps predict the used market price among other things, and this one has a small niche. If you're looking for a new girlfriend, that could be a plus. Of course, newer models, low mileage, or models with the rare power steering option can certainly bring a premium price.
  5. I have them, or I can supply you with a full rack of parts carbs.
  6. What's behind the black caps are the slide diaphragms or vacuum piston, 16111-MAT-000. The air cut-off valve is 16510-MAL-600 and is something completely different. I will look for these for you.
  7. I appears to be glued in. I've never had success removing them undamaged.
  8. You have a California bike? I thought the air cutoff valves were only on the left coast bikes. The dashes are identical between the 97, 98, 99, and 00.....EXCEPT the cover plate has an amber filter marked S on the early models, and the later models have a red filter marked FI.
  9. Yeah, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity for a chuckle. I did LOL at the thought of someone actually doing it.
  10. I got a better idea. Why don't you tape over your own air inlet and see how good that thing runs?
  11. I would estimate that you'd be getting about 15 millibar from a good ram air at that speed. That's just a tad over 0.2 psi. Your leaf blower won't cut it.
  12. It means you're overthinking things. Stop and get gas at the 150-160 mark. Four hours in the seat is long enough.
  13. Your speedo healer may alter the speedometer "how fast am I going" pointer, but it also alters the odometer reading. While an XX speedometer is quite optimistic, the odometer is pretty much correct. So making the speedometer read the correct speed (slower than it wants to read) makes your odometer record less mileage...so you run out of gas sooner, or so it appears.
