FS: KLR650 2008 mid Jan. in Bs As or Paraguay

I sell my "Rocinante" 2008 KLR 650 Gen 2 in Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay from mid January 2013 on. Registered in Washington State, USA.

The bike has now about 90'000km on the clock, but since I´ve rebuilded the entire top end one month ago(new cilinder sleeve, OEM stock Piston and rings, new Gaskets) I've done about 5000km since the rebuild and it will be not more than 10'000km when I'll arrive to Buneos Aires end of January.

I' ve also changed other parts 5000km ago like:

- New Chain and sprockets
- New Clutch
- New Battery

The transmission was changed by the previous owner 40'000km ago.

So she has actually 90'000km on the frame only, all the other parts were changed and replaced.
I wrote everything I've changed down in the users manual of the bike with the date and the kilometers so you can folow the service history without problems. I kept all the receipts of the the stuff I replaced a 5000km ago, it was more than 1500 USD of new parts!

This is the perfect Bike and time to start a Patagonian trip, January and February is high season over there...

The Bike is fully equipped for long distance trips and has following Modifications:
- Doohickey upgrade
- bash plate
- Crash bars with highway pegs
- Zarges aluminum panniers
- huge impermeable Hardigg Storm case
- Laminar Wind shield
- grip heaters
- Cleanable Metal Oilfilter (no changes, just cean it)
- llama fur for cold days in the Altiplano
- very comfortable custom made leather saddle
- 12V Socket
- A lot of Tools
- Reserve tank

Spare parts:

- clutch cable
- throttle cable
- Break pads
- innertubes and repair set

and many more....

Rocinate is well traveled but has always been maintained (oil, fork oil, bearing greasing, Radiator coolant, break fluid etc. changed under Kawasaki time/km recommendations). At the time of the rebuild many other key parts like bearings, chain runners, oil seals, cylinder gaskets etc were also replaced.

You can also buy me other stuff, depending on what you need:
-Locks (cable, padlocks)
-Gericke bike pants
-Gericke bike jacket
-Sealline waterproofbags
-Tank bag Wolfman in good condition(5month old)
-North face tent (2 Month old)
-fuel camping cooker

and may moore.....

I'm asking for 3000 USD

Please PM me or send me an Email on daniwaespiATgmailDOTcom

Saludos Daniel
