54 HP (40 KW)
- Very high oil consumption
during the first 2000 km. (1.5 l/1000 km - repaired under warranty)
- No oil consumption at all
until about 45000km. Now I keep an eye on it, and add a bit from
time to time.
- Third set of front brake
pads changed at 56500km
- Rear brake pads need to
be changed every 16000 km or so.
- Original drive chain and
sprockets changed at 23000km
- After market replacement
drive chain was done 10000km later (now I'm using original chain and sprockets
- 4th battery since new.
(one of them lasted just one season)
- Originally mounted rear
tire replaced at 4500km by a Michelin T65, which was done after 6500km.
(on my former 600KLR the same tire lasted 12500km)
- Changed to pure street tires
(Metzeler, rear ME55 / front ME33 - 8000km/10000km)
- Back to enduro tires at
33000km: Michelin T66, entirely satisfied, I should have done that earlier.
- Now on MICHELIN Anakee.
- Changed chain and sprockets
- 64000km without any problems
