Simple answer NO!.
I would suggest buying in Texas or California and then coming south. Second hand bikes keep their value here in Mexico. You can check the site Mercadolibre which is like e-bay. KLRs are very hard to find and cost around 8000 dlls new here. It could take weeks or even months to find a good KLR and finding 2 will be even harder.
If you have no choice but to buy here post again and I will look around to see what is available.
