The KLR was notable for many reasons – one of them was how long it lasted with barely any changes. That’s what made the updates in 2008 and the mid-2014 “New Edition” so notable. 2008 brought a complete revamp, while 2014 introduced just two changes: huge suspension improvements and a reshaped seat. The forks were 40% stiffer and offered 28% more rebound damping, while the shock was 63% stiffer and had 80% more damping.
The seller of this example (VIN: JKAKLEE1XEDA75980) acquired it in February of 2018 from a soldier who was soon deploying overseas. At the time, it was 100% stock and it had 2,934 miles.
The odometer now shows 7,370 miles, and this KLR is far from stock.
The long list of farkles includes a large portion of the SW-MOTECH catalog:
Skidplate with drain hole.
Side stand switch protector plate and center stand.
LED WOW taillight (flashes when brake is applied).
MulePack 28L High Density Polyethylene Panniers.
Locking license plate holder stash box.
New Continental TKC80s.
Maintenance has always been handled by a Kawasaki dealer, and all documentation is included, including a shop manual.
We note a scratch on the left side fairing and some scratches on the right tail plastics.
The seller is letting this go as he just snagged a wonderful RC30 from us and he needs to make some room. Have any KLR stories or questions about this listing? Let us know in the comments below!
