  1. IMS 3.3 gallon natural tank. Fits most 2-strokes from 2011-2016 (see link), maybe more. Probably fits Husky's too? Not perfect but great condition. $100 Maier Handguards with wraparound brushguards. Good condition. Came off a KLR650. $40 Seal Line map protector. OK condition. Can mount to handlebars. Free with purchase of anything else. Also have a number of parts from a 2017 KTM Freeride 250R. Let me know if interested and I can try to get more specific details (eg spring rates etc). Fork springs - $50/set Shock spring - $40 Stock footpegs - $20 Knight Designs footpegs - $40
  2. She gone. Thanks Bob, nice to meet you and really hope you get it back on the road without much fuss. After 15 years and 10 countries I'm really gonna miss that bike.
  3. '99 KLR650 that has been shamefully, disgracefully neglected and was left outside for the last year. Was running fine previously but started overflowing from the carb. I fixed twice but it kept coming back (guessing that ethanol corroded the float needle's bore since I replaced the needle and it keeps getting stuck and overflowing). For some reason the front brake stopped working since it was parked but had always worked fine before. There's fluid in the master so don't know why it quit. ODO shows about 13k miles but it's really around 80k (hit a deer at around 40k miles and replaced gauge cluster, later the replacement speedo/ODO stopped working). Currently registered as Non-Op. Clean title. Schnitz 685 kit installed at around 50k miles, cylinder/piston matched by KLR Cary himself. NEEDS AT MINIMUM: Battery, carb rebuilt or replaced, front brake repaired, old gas drained/replaced Even after those issues are fixed, it's a quite used bike and rough around the edges. Hoping someone needs a parts bike or a cheap project to work on. I can probably deliver within SD area. $75 takes it, (cash or Venmo). Willing to donate if someone is in desperate need.

    Just a heads up on Crawdaddy

    I cannot imagine being so damn tough that I would be able to get back on the bike after that. Hope the recovery is speedy!
  5. Awesome! It looked familiar like the windscreens I see people making from trash bins, but I've never seen one with a translucent tinted plastic like that. Looks really great.
  6. What windscreen do you have in the picture BTW?
  7. Hey Ken! The R-80's are on the short list of options I'm considering. Looking to set up this bike for South America for next year so might need a few extra liters, or more accurately, might need a touch more ease getting things in/out. I am kicking myself for selling the DR I bought from Afry because that is basically the template I'm trying to re-create. He knew how to set a bike up for sure. Nostalgia price drop, $300 OBO for the bags/racks.
  8. Bought a bike with these already installed and am going to go with a different rack and soft bags. These are in excellent shape except for one of the latches needs to be replaced. Latches can be found on Amazon for $14. I left the blinkers on the rack so you can just plug and play. Details on rack and bags can be found here: https://www.revzilla.com/dirt-bike/moose-racing-expedition-luggage-rack-system Looking for $400 from SDAR members. It's $700 new and I've got it on CL for $500. Let me know if you'd like to check it out, I live in Clairemont. Thanks!
  9. I use a Rotopax on a custom mounting plate attached to Wolfman racks. Works great and I can still use the Giant Loop bags and tool tubes behind it.

    There's some fun riding around Ramona and Palomar, which aren't too far from you. San Diego Dual Sport Map Ken is right about the DRZ's, they're excellent for someone looking for a first bike or a do it all bike. They're kind of like the SV650 of the dirt world. Sure there's faster bikes and bikes that are better at this or that, but the DRZs are reliable, inexpensive, and very competent machines, just like the SVs. Hard to beat the smiles per dollar ratio on them. See you on the trails.

    SDAR member AFRY - Arnie has passed

    This really sucks, he was definitely one of the good ones. Only met him a few times but he was always extraordinarily friendly and eager to pass on some of his quite extensive knowledge. I only rode with him once, and while I was pushing and pulling and sweating and swearing, there he was just rolling along right next to me with a smile on his face, at what to him must have been a leisurely pace. He was a great rider and one heck of a bike wrench, too. I bought his DR650 and Suzuki themselves couldn't have set it up more perfectly if you gave them 50 grand. I barely knew him and he had a positive effect on me. Condolences to those that knew him well, and to those that never got the chance. Won't be able to attend the gathering due to work unfortunately, but I'll be there in spirit.
  12. Those are such excellent bikes and that's a great looking example. Really dig the muffler, too.
  13. Doh! Sorry I forgot to reply, transitioning from my old job of 10 years to a new job next week and things have been hectic. The 200 is a red sticker bike, unfortunately. I also have a WR250R but that seems like it would give up too much of the fun factor. Guess I'll have to buy that Beta 390RR I've been dreaming about.
  14. Is this for plated bikes only? Would a 200exc 2-stroke work well up there? Never been, but I've seen some pictures of BB that looked pretty gnarly.

    I've used Smugmug for a long time now and will probably keep using it forever. It's $40/year, but worth it in my opinion. Excellent.
