2008 KLR650 for sale in Colombia, 20k miles

If this thread looks familiar, it is because I bought the bike from ¨Stringsmovie¨in October and have driven it through South America. The bike has been amazing thus far and will be ready to go for the next rider in Colombia. Here is the original for sale post.


I will be in Colombia around December 10th and would like to sell it then. During the time I´ve owned the bike I´ve replaced the tires, changed the oil multiple times, replaced the chain, and adjusted the carbs for high altitude. This bike is ready to go for the next owner and I wish him or her all of the adventures that I´ve had so far. The bike now has 17,000 miles and will have around 20,000 miles by the time I arrive in Colombia.


Happy trails skid plate and engine guard.
Happy trails soft or hard luggage racks. I have soft bags but there are slots on it for hard cases to attach.
Nelson Rigg saddlebags + rain covers
Trunk Lock box, fits a laptop plus a bunch of clothes.
KLR softbags that run through custom mounting on the Trunk Lock Box (see pics) Plenty of storage!!!
The big thick owners manual that cost me 70 bucks but the bike has been so solid that I haven't taken it out even once the entire trip.
Custom seat, with raised passenger seat.
Aftermarket exhaust so its louder (and lighter) than most.
Upgraded subframe bolts PLUS professionally welded extra aluminum to the rear to provide more support. All bolts were loc-tited back home and again in Medellin just to be sure

I can include all of my tools, riding gear, and spare tubes for an extra fee. Bike is registered in Texas. I can help you with the paperwork, too, as I needed to do it when I bought the bike.

Priced very fair at $4,600, which includes more than $1,200 in extras! Email is the best way to contact me at justingreenfield@gmail.com

Photos can be seen by clicking the Photobucket link on the original thread listed above.

I just bought a new rear tire and had the bike retuned for high altitude. It ran great yesterday over the 15,000+ foot pass between La Paz and the Death Road.

If you changed out the jets, don't neglect to change them back again before descending or you'll start burning valves. (Not meaning to be obnoxious, just hoping to be helpful)

Selling for more than what you paid??

I can't help but notice that you are advertising this bike for more than it was advertised when you bought it. Whats up with that?
