2005 KLR650 For Sale - Canada

I have a 2005 KLR650 in perfect condition with just 1400km. It has just had its first service. I have completed just about every upgrade you can on a KLR650, Suspension, Brakes, Frame, Engine (Exhaust, Doohickey, Dynojet etc.). The details our on a website;


I built this bike ready to go around the world, however a shoulder injury (not from riding this bike) has caused me to cancel my plans. The bike is in Vancouver, BC Canada. It is ready to go anywhere. In addition to the photos on the website I have Happy Trails aluminium panniers, new and never fitted available and more. Phone etc. is on the website. or email me gwhitmarsh@mac.com

Damn, thats sad. No chance you could spend time healing instead of selling the bike ?

I snapped the head off my humerous where it meets the shoulder Oct last year, really messed up the joint. Two surguries & lots of physio but I'm riding again now.

Speedy recovery.

Smile 2005 KLR650 For Sale - Canada

Hello there,
What is the seat height from the ground? The comfort zone for me is 34in/86cm inseam with boots on and feet flat on ground. Nice photos of the bike on your website and if your rotator cuff needs surgery, they take time to heal. I am within two hours of travel time from Vancouver and will email you regarding the bike. Cheers rio_perros
I missed a real beauty but will keep looking, as for my height Tiny it is 5'6"
