I follow a few forums on the KLR 650 and the one had a few people asking when the next Chicago area tech-day would be. I have everything needed besides parts to get most work needed done. My bike is mostly done with modifying it so why not help out other that need some tweaking.
Today was the day and I have to say it was a ton of fun getting one bike up to par and another set up for a better ride.
It’s always nice to put user names to real names and faces. Also creating more opportunities for more friends and riding buddies.
Only two bikes to work on but plenty to get done in a few hours.
New Doo in place and ready for the torsion spring to be hooked.
Working the spring into the Doo was a small challenge.
Getting Jim’s Doo done. His was in good shape, in one piece and a lot of spring tension left. We also installed the torsion spring.
So all together we did two Doo’s, rear raising links, front springs with fresh fork oil, fork brace, 22 cents carb mod, front and rear sprockets with a chain.
I want to thank everyone for helping out.
