Default New KLX owner and new to the sight

Just wanted to say hi. I just traded my oil burning 08 KLR 650 for a 09 KLX 250 trying to get used to smaller bike. Any mod tips would help. Tom

Hey Tom, welcome to the site, and welcome to the best bike EVER!!!!!! Ok some of that might be the coffee talking, but really the KLX is a light weight bike that will do anything you want it to do. Have fun and again welcome to this crazy place we all call our second home.....well third home since riding the KLX is our second home.

Spoke to Kawasaki at lunch today I was informed the bike will use a little during break in. Ok we will see. I drained out the oil at the shop measured it and marked the glass. And yes this bike is a blast off road.
