For Sale: 2005 KLR650 in Chile, Low miles, End of Feb 2010

2005 Kawasaki KLR650 (color = Red/Black; 12,000 mi; title = USA / Pennsylvania) I'm traveling through South America now. Rode bike from Texas through Mexico and Central America then air shipped from Panama to South America (so no exposure to salt water).

Happy Trails Large (10.5 inch) Aluminum Panniers and Racks, Black powder-coated
Kawasaki KLR650 Pannier Kit - KLR650 & Adventure Touring Motorcycle Luggage and Aluminum Panniers
Corbin Seat
Corbin Motorcycle Seats & Accessories | Kawasaki KLR Motorcycles | 800-538-7035
Performance Stainless exhaust
Heavy duty Engine skid plate
Radiator guard
Doohickey replaced (just in case... the old Doo never failed)
Spring loaded Shift and Rear Brake levers
Upgraded to 16 tooth gear for better mileage
Bypassed Kill switch (2 of 5 KLR's this trip the tank bag broke switch)

-- -- PARTS -- --
Spare Front and Rear tire
New 2 Front and 1 Rear tubes
New Clutch and Throttle Pull cables
New Headlight, Turn, and Indicator bulbs
New Kawasaki footpegs
New Clutch and Front Brake levers

-- -- Notes: -- --
It has been rock solid for me and runs great. However, in our group of 5 KLR's, mine burned more oil than the others; but it's not a 2008 (known for burning oil) Previous owner told me he replaced the rings. No smoking from exhaust or significant leak though -- don't really know why. Needs new chain and rear sprocket. The Panniers, Seat and Exhaust alone run around US$1500 online. It has been ridden so of course it has character but nothing major (typical dings, scratches, and cracked hand guards). Dirt is included, but it can be washed if you prefer.

Asking Price: US$3700, negotiable. Have title; US sale preferred.
