klr 650A (USA) - identical to european version apart from bodywork?
My long suffering KLR has been stolen (again) in the UK, after bringing it home from an LA-BA trip in '06. It's been recovered (again), but this time the lovely people who stole it have managed to put a crack in the actual engine barrel. No idea how. Anyway.....
I've found a breaker's yard with 'a KLR engine' in the UK - are the engine parts universal worldwide, until the new 2008 model? Mine's a 2004, and is not the Cali version but the main USA one. Bodywork 'A' (the most common).
Any definitive answers will be really appreciated, as Kawasaki UK just gave me a bored "we don't deal with american models. at all."
The guy at a US Kawasaki dealer who I spoke to on the phone said "what's a barrell?" (so to clarify this, I'm talking about the cylinder; and the piston should be changed too).
Bueno... Who amongst you knows about KLRs, then?
