Thanks for the advice; Got it changed!
Hola HU Community,
Thanks to all those who've posted advice, incl Mickey D, about the doohickey change issue. I got mine changed in Quito, Ecuador (details posted elsewhere on the HUBB). When I got the old doohickey out it was cracked in two places and came apart in my hand later as I was taking photos of it! Yeah, good timing.
This KLR has done about 25,000 miles (if you believe the previous owners! Probably a few more....). Great to get 'er done. See you on the road.
