99 Kawasaki KLR 650 FULLY LOADED Buenas Aires Argentina/Chile

Bike is now sold

I have ridden this from the US to Argentina so it is a US registered bike.
She isn't pretty, we have had lots of adventures together, but is mechanically sound and very reliable.
LOTS AND LOTS of upgrades and mods, the guys I bought it from in the US owned their own engineering workshop and went to town on the bike. Mods include.

Completely rewired in heavier guage wire with modern fuses (pre 08 KLRs had glass fuses)
gas cap mod
carb vent mod
airbox mod
subframe heavyduty bolt kit
high output stator
carburetor pilot screw
progressive suspension front and rear
heated grips
accesory socket
protaper bars
doohickey
magnetic drain plug
Happy trails K-8 fork brace
quality offroad footpegs
large sidestand foot
tall wind screen
comfy long distance Corbin seat (expensive)
Happy trails rack and metal panniers (fully waterproof) with heavy duty weatherproof locks all keyed alike
acerbis hand guards
crash bars
skid/bash plate
hardcore AGM oddysey battery


also comes with:
spare key
Carburetor jet kit incase you want to fit a performance exhaust
tool kit and extras
2X 8L external fuel cans
tie-downs
inner tubes

She has done 26000miles and I had the piston and rings changed 4000miles ago.

She is basically ready to ride off for adventure with everything you could need.

Looking for $2300 ONO

Xfiltrate here

Hi Kevination, xfiltrate here just do a search for all posts by xfiltrate.

I have about 340 posts on the HUBB.

Ed is my name, but xfiltrate is my screen name on the HUBB. One of my threads has a sticky:

South and Central America and Mexico ( region )

Buy new or used in Argentina and legally tour all of South America (thread)

Or ask me questions right here, I have recently posted several replies to various threads regarding buying new or used in Argentina and Chile and attempted to deal with all aspects of foreign tourists purchasing or selling in Argentina.

Hope I can help.

Buying a US registered Bike

Ed
What is your opinion on an american buying a US registered bike in Argentina and traveling across borders with a notorized power of attorney from the seller as opposed to making a between-border title transfer?

Thanks
CCjon


Thanks

Klr650

Baz, since I don't have 5 posts yet I can't send you a private email.

Is the KLR still available?
Can't be there until mid-December at the earliest.
Am a US resident/citizen of the Republic of Texas.
Are you still planning on leaving SA by the end of November, or can we get together mid-month?

Ask Ed how would be the best way for you to sell and then I arrive a few weeks later if you must leave by the end of Nov. Is that possible? Doable?
How exactly?

Thanks for looking into this.
CCjon

Hi
I am Australian and interested if the ownership can be transferred in a way that works for me to take the bike around Sth America. In Europe now and have not bought ticket to Sth America yet so can buy a ticket to location that is mutually acceptable.

Hi Guys
Thanks for your replies.
The bikes still available and I am gonna be in BA in about 2 weeks time.
As for the change of ownership errr... I dunno how it works.
The bike is US registered and it wouild be great if I could sell it to an American as it would be easy and legal otherwise I was hopeing you would tell me
I am willing to arange whatever paperwork you think you will need.
I will however sell the bike cheap enough that you could ride and dispose of it if you wanted.

I am just wondering if you can tell me any information about how to get in touch with the owner of this bike if you are no longer interested in this bike.
