Hi everyone. The manual is great even if i have the 2004 KLE500 is almost the same.
My 11 litre tank lasts 180km and i have managed to empty it in 150km but travelling and reving more than 7.000rpm for long time.
When i was braking into to bike it did 240km with the 11 litre.

Mine is 2 years old and has 20.000km. I had some strange problems (one was that the oil finished(2litre) in 2000km and i just noticed in time) now i am almost off warranty 1 month left and i monitor it day by day to see if this happens again i am giving it back to fix it for free.

I now need to change the chain..a lot of noice and my tires...
I would like suggestions on both of them if you have.

KLE 500 User Manual for 94' Model

Hi Luuk,

I just bought a 2nd hand machine from a friend of mine down here in Penang.
It was 94' Model.Quite interesting and yet to run the show as I was bit busy with my schedule.

I'd downloaded the Manual from www.motocikli.com/files/kle500manual.pdf
Does it apply to the 94' Model as well?



Safe Riding!

i thinks so, the kle hasn't changed to much over the years, only some new bodywork en enviromental stuff. i just adjusted the valve clearance on my 2000 kle with the manual (with is for a 2006 model) there are some diferences but not mayor. for instance in the engine top cover i have no check valves. the 2006 model has. good luck, if you have a problem just post it on the forum.

Hi Kumuya,

Just bough a KLE 500 A4 (1994) Model last month. Quite interesting machine...
Appreciate if you could send me the Manual as I need to learn on how to fix my machine.

Aside from that, my exhaut pipe produce "Prang" sound and to tell the truth, I don't like it
Perhaps you may have suggestion on how to fix this
Looking forward to hear from you and safe riding

Owner's manual for KLE 500 needed

I live in France and I'm studying for my "permis moto." I just learned that I get docked a point on the exam if I can't show my owner's manual! Does anyone have--or could copy--an owner's manual for a KLE 500?

It's easy to find the workshop manual online, but I've never seen the owner's manual on ebay or anywhere else.

My bike is a year 2000 but I'll take whatever year anyone has. I'd be happy with English or French. Will pay for photocopying and postage, if you can't sent it online.

Thumbs up KLE 500 Service Manual

HI Guys, Just joined up to this forum while trying to find a service manual for my KLE 500 1994 model year A4.

I've just got into biking and only bought the bike last month, needed a new exhaust I have put on a remus innovation but now has 'back fire' on slowing down, also I think it is running too rich (needs no choke at all to get it started) so need to adjust the settings on the carb. If Its possible to email me the manual that some users have it would be greatly appreciated. tyrone.williams@tiscali.co.uk

Some of the info I have read so far on this bike make me think i got a great first bike.

I'm not sure what the exhaust system is you have put on your bike, but the chances are it is less restrictive than standard, so the back firing is more likely to be the engine running lean on over-run. I have just bought a 2006 model, I suspect the motor is strangled by all the emission gubbins, so am expecting the same problem myself shortly!
