FS: 2007 KLR650 in BsAs or Chile mid-November
For Sale: 2007 KLR 650 in Argentina or Chile mid-November 2012. Registered in Washington State, USA (Jan 2013). The bike is very reliable, currently has about 34,000km since full top-end rebuild and is set up, ready to go. We are asking $3,500 US.
This is the perfect time to start a Patagonian trip, as weather will be nice in December.
Ideally we would like to sell in either the free ports of Chile, or Buenos Aires, but we might consider other regions in southern South America (NOT BRAZIL).
-Subframe bolts upgrade
-Alloy bash plate
-Crash bars with highway pegs
-Custom Jesse type aluminum panniers. About 38 lt. capacity each, left side pannier has custom lockable trap door, which is great for carrying rags and tools.

Probably stuff that I have forgotten....
She is well traveled but has always been meticulously maintained (oil, filters, fork oil, bearing greasing etc, changed under Kawasaki time/km recommendations). At the time of the rebuild many other key parts like bearings, chain runners, oil seals etc were also replaced.
-Tank is not so pretty, has a few good-sized dents, but purely cosmetic—no rust.
-Speedometer doesn’t work, but is fitted with sigma electronic speedo
We can also throw in lots of other handy bits and pieces that may be
of use, depending on what you need:
-Locks (cable, U, padlocks)

I'm quite interested and have a few questions. I'm not exactly sure when I'll be in BA. I'm leaving Medellin (Colombia) end of Octocber, heading down the Amazon, quick visit to Rio, swing past the falls and into BA to buy a bike and ride back around (Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru) to cusco. See how I go, I might devote a bit more time to the saddle and ride back to Medellin.
A whole lot of info you probably didn't need, but the point is, it's looking more like December.
1. What's the temporary import certificate look like at the moment? I want to ride like I said to those other countries. Can that be organized easy enough?
2. 30,000km since the rebuild. I'm predicting it's relatively due. Is it still the 650cc cylinder?
3. How's the km's/L, what do you get'ish? Ever run out, no servo's for ages. More of a general question.
4. I'll probably be keen for a to discuss a few on the road tips aswell. It's be my first such adventure ride. I'm kinda heading into blind. Last bike was a WR400 in Australia. Small half day rides and general local road use. Just enough to get me into trouble...
Bike is still for sale.
We would still like to sell late November, ideally around Southern Chile/Argentina.
As for bike updates:
-Now has 40,000km since top-end rebuild
-Today adjusted shims for maximum clearance
-Fork oil, brake fluid, brake pads and rear tire recently changed
-Currently carrying an extra front tire (MT 60), 2 oil filters, new air filter, spare brake pads
-Replaced Sigma electronic speedometer with more sleek Echowell model
***Now willing to negotiate (but not happy about it) the sale of Jessie type aluminum panniers. They are custom designed to fit Happy Trails rack, have about 38L capacity each, left side pannier has custom lockable trap door, which is great for carrying rags and tools.

Be the envy of your friends. If we had the money, we would not hesitate to ride this motorbike back home to the USA. But our loss is your gain.
Have any questions about how to get this legally registered in your name? We are just an email away.
Jordan and Anne
Bump for flushing coolant, installing new Pirelli MT-60 front tire, new clutch cable, and new Michelin Sirac rear tire.
Currently in Bariloche, headed south, hoping to sell soon.
Bike is running like a champ, awaiting a new owner to take good care of her.
Currently in El Chalten, Argentina. After 3 years of living in South America we are wanting to go back home.
Make us an offer. A guy put down a deposit but backed out, so we will pass the savings on to you. His loss, your gain.
Wouldn't it be awesome to start a trip in Ushuaia during the Patagonian summer?!
Or, if anybody knows a Chilean who wants to buy a bike, PM me por fa...
