If you do need new drive components, I highly recommend Rocky Mountain ATV and their "Primary Drive" kit for the KLR, less than $100 delivered
Thanks for the reply Kawioops, here's a couple bad pictures haha. It was hard to get a pic of the cs sprocket. As far as I can tell they don't look too bad right? Obviously my chain needs a big ol cleaning. I hate to admit, but my chain needs a tightening and I haven't done it since I got the bike 700 miles ago :/ I don't quite have the tools I need, or a way to lift the rear. I suppose that could be the answer right there.

Sprockets don't look bad. Hard to tell about the chain but it probably has a good bit more life in it. You don't have to lift the rear to tighten the chain.

I don't see enough wear to cause concern. Could be misalignment. Get 'er to the tech day and we'll have a go at it.

Thanks, sounds like a plan. Apparently I shouldn't be left to my own devices with such a beautiful machine anyway, just changed the oil and pretty sure I over torqued the drain plug and filled all the way to the top line But I'm pretty sure I'm a quick learner I'll try to keep 'er in one piece until Saturday, and come observe some pros at work. Since my contribution won't exactly be knowledge based, if anyone has favorite beer or snacks fee free to let me know!

Something to throw on the grill?

Cheesy Puffs?

Strippers? (not to throw on the grill)

Best not to mention brats and strippers in the same post..

The confusion could be quite unfortunate.......

OK, per my usual, I will meet anyone who is coming from the North at the Denny's at 104th and I-25 for breakfast @ 7 am-ish, depart from there. From South bound I-25, take the 104th exit, go left and it's the first right.

Strippers and sausages and buns, oh my!

Anyone have a gallon of Simple Orange you want to donate?

Bobby is bringing ice. We'll have soft drinks and some beers, a few other snacks.

of course you've got Marty and me covered

... and in case you need a stripper headcount, it'll be zero unless the local bears decide to join us - lately they've been stripping the fermented choke cherries from our trees and having quite the party in our yard ...

It rained like heck all last night; our dirt road is a rutted mud pit, not all that fit for wings Hopefully it will dry up today. In the meantime, I'm going to try and get Tom's KLR running. Mine's good-to-go.
