stolen KLR 650

A friend just posted on another site about seeing a green KLR650 in Copper Canyon that was obviously a stolen bike. It had a damaged ignition, various other signs of bad treatment. He is there waiting on parts for his KLR so he can return home to Louisianna. He was at the Traveler's Meeting. Anyway, here is the VIN

Easy Tiger.......

A damaged ignition tumbler is not conclusive proof it's stolen. I used to ride a scruffy 550/4 with a few toggle switches in lieu of a proper ignition tumbler because my key snapped off in the ignition....

How do you know someone else did not try stealing it but failed, leaving the ignotion damaged - I've also had this happen to me twice.

It's a KLR, some do get ridden offroad & have suffered neglect or abuse, still not proof of theft.....

Steve - very true words

Pilot - thanks for the info I know if my bike was stolen and someone ran the vin number where I could find it it would help a lot. Provided you want it back after any additional abuse.

I didn't get to go. The KLR in question is one that rolled up to the hotel Chuck is stuck at waiting for parts. I didn't post the list of signs of being stolen, only that Chuck thought it looked like it. It's not a bad thing to post about a possible stolen bike. Very well could be legit, but someone might just be missing one.
