Here's a site that shows a world map that will give you the answer in real time:-
Time - Current time around the World and standard time zones map of the world

There are quite a few facilities like this on the internet, if you prefer a different form of presentation.

Had a problem with my KLR after rebuilding the top end (rings and light honing) and I'd also sorted the "doohickey" issue. Spent a lot of time fiddling with the carb, ignition, checking timing etc. No luck.

In the end I found that the flywheel wasn't quite seated right on the woodruff key. Fired straight up after that. Don't know if that'll help but anythings worth a go I guess.



Also, if someone could send me the KLR650 manual I would really really appreciate it!!!


Hope you get it sorted!!

PM me your address and I'll send you one. All I ask in return is help me ship a few Tengai items from the UK to the US. I'll buy the Tengai parts (small ones) and have them sent to you. You ship them to me (the cost of shipping would be no more than the cost of the manual).

Deal? No gimmicks here. I've done this already with a member of this site and it worked out fine.

Lemme know.

Thx,

John

Don't know if you resolved the problem yet but here are some pics that might help. I took these after I had a washer get caught in the timing chain.. notice the two arrows on the cams...

Always nice to get a "thanks chinas!" once the bike is running again or must we assume stretcher monkey still sitting on KLR bits in the jungle of Colombia?.

After sitting for 3 months, Did you try helping out the compression a little by putting in a little oil in the plug hole. If the bike was running fine, and the carb was cleaned , try that.
