Hi, Luuk, I'm looking for the same manual ....:clap: your offer is still up?

Well even if you asked Shustrik about KLE - I will try to answer you even if I have the 400 KLE - and I ride it only 3 months - in my opinion is an excelent bike - a little heavier for an enduro and you sweat a lot if you go off-road with it on hills and it's twin engine is a little slow on this terain .... and In city is a little larger to get within 2 cars at a stop if is the rush hour ... but has it's strengts .... for me as a beginner is a good bike because is not like ktm's to go on one wheel if you accelerate to quick. Even if I have cross tires is very stable on street, is very reliable and parts are at a fair price and speaking about kle 400 which is a Japan model all parts are Japan quality :thumbup1: and you can ride 300Km with a full gas tank :D but in city I notice that it "eats" more gas. Overall is a good bike if you go on road an soft-enduro - in hard enduro is not so good but I manage to keep up with a KTM 640 LC4 - I raise the tail as much as I can so it has a real enduro shape :biggrin3:

Luuk 16 Jun 2006 10:41

how do you rase the tail??? hardest setting on the rear schock?? give your email adress and i'll mail the pdf file to jou, mind you does take up some space so be sure you got room in your inbox.

At my model I had 3 or 4 position for rear shock i put-it on the highest position and since I wasn't satisfied i extended a little bit the shock. I will make some pictures an I will send them to you to understand better.
But Since it's position is high I soften the shock to absorbe better - is not rigid ... my chain if you look at it in park position is like a little loose but when I'm on it ... because the suspension is not hard .. it-s in perfect position not to loose and not to tight - to allow rear to go up and down on terrain

And since I don't have 15 posts and I can't send you a private message .... I will give my addres online - claudiu.radulescu[ at ]gmail.com

So on the up side of shock you have 4 positions to mount it Attachment 52
I made my extension on the bottom of shock Attachment 53
and now it looks like this Attachment 54

You can raise the tail without extending the bottom of shock by positioning the up-side of shock on the 3rd or 4th position (from up to down) but I encountred a problem when I first put on the 3rd position it was too low and the angle of shock was a little strange and on the 4th hole I couldn't put it because of the frame so I choose to modify my shock absorber to add lenght on it

If you compare it with other kle's is really high ... I'm 1.90m tall and is not very easy for me to get on it, I have to "climb" a little :cool4:

i'll mail jou the manual today, your kle looks great is the from mudgard standart? mine is low but this look really offroad. anny know problems with the KLE??

Kumuya 20 Jun 2006 11:07

:clap: Thank you very much .... I owe you!

Everithyng on it is original!!! except front wheel guard which is from a honda or yamaha ..... look for something that will fit .... Now you can raise your tail and make it look unique .... many people couldn't belive that this is a KLE or that you can do this with a kle .... on forums I haven't foun many good rewiews on this model ... But sure that those people had other versions - because kle is not a wide market seller .... are quite few kle's ....
But neither previous owner did not have any problems with it - and I know for sure because is my friend and I know each problem that he had with am Yamaha DT .... but with this one .... no major problems .... he only changed brake pads and oil .... and go a lot of off-road with it ... lots of crashes on hills and still it looks like you seen it.

So it's from 1994 ... has almoust 45.000Km, he ride with it almoust 30.000 and I ride only 1.000 - but no major problem - since he bought this bike from japan he only changed tires, once the brake pads, lights and .....oil ..... nothing to worry about. But once again this is the Japan model - KLE400 - I don't know anybody with KLE500 but since is the same thing only the cmc's are different I don't see why KLE500 should be worse.

And I started to tune up this bike last year - raising tail, cross tire on front and eduro on rear wheel, front wheel guard changed .... and it looks like this.

If I can help you with other stuff please let me know :thumbup1:

I can tell you one more thing: I noticed that some people on forums are saying that the seat is unconfortable .... Is totaly wrong!!! for an enduro bike the seat is very confortable ..... I was with an KTM and an Yamaha DT for 300Km .... :censored: totaly unconfortable .... my ass hurt for 2 days :censored: With KLE ... a real plesure for rider and passenger.

THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAVE is that is very hard to find parts for it .... maybe in Netherlands is not like in Romania ... but here is very hard + if I want something for it's engine .... almoust imposible only ordered from Japan, but fortunately except engine all other parts are as on KLE 500 so I wait only 1-2 months :thumbdown:

I use Motul engine oil 10W-40 and for chain I use fully shyntetic oil for cross and enduro from Motorex .... and is first time when the chain is changed ... well I still wait for the entire replacement kit.

Kumuya 20 Jun 2006 11:19

Oh yes!!! I forgot! .... If is a hot summer you should check often the cooling fluid for engine ..... and since it recharges very well and fast the battery .... you should also check often the battery level if you have a battery with meitanance - at two weeks :( and add distilated water

kle 500 club
 
hi guys
i ve bought a kle 500 3 months ago from a cousin of mine in Athens, he bought it on 1996 and made 75000 km
I had to come back to my hometown Thessaloniki (550km)so i decided to come riding my new moto. So i did The weather was nice and it was a 5 hours trip with three stops.
When i got in my town i took my moto to a technician to tell me if there was anything i should change.
he told me that the radiator was completely empty .My cousin did not put any water never!!!
so i made a trip (average speed 140km/h) without any water and nobody knows why it wasnt stuck on the middle of the highway.
SO please can you send me too the manual of KLE 500 so i can start learning and servicing my moto?
i would be very pleased if you did.
