Finish & Exhaust ???
well there as you may already no i am planning on purchasing a kle500 in and arround the 2007 year!
anyway im sure i have tortured you all already but aww well .....unlucky here i go again with another rant!
having sourced info on the kle and realised its a fun cheap bike that will suit my needs i.e touring long miles etc 2 problems arised!
1. the finish (frame plastics etc)
2. the exhaust (rust, downpipes finish etc)
1. i was wanting to know the finish on the plastics i.e any fading are they ridgid and what is the likelyhood of problems with rust on the frame?
also are the plastics easily removed for self servicing and are they cheap if marked or scraped? also how easy are they modify if needed if i want to add extra lights etc!
2. the exhaust! i have read many articles which big up the kle500 untill the exhaust as in some cases i have read that the exhaust rusts in a matter of months quite badly and the downpipes also rust quite alot aswell?
any info on cost to replace them? painting them with a protective cover or a road i think i would most likely go down is to replace them with a whole new system but this is where problems arise as i seem to find a few manufactures if any that make a full system for the kle500? any help on a new system and link would be great!
also any help pictures links to any of the above would be superb!
DEATH BEFORE DECELLERATION!
