tcepilot: Wow. This bike sucks. It's too heavy for the trails. And too light for the
road. Why?????? Just get an Xr
Joe Duruisseau: I think I smoked a joint Bla Bla Bla I cant talk bla bla bla ???????????
BDAWGRANGER: Thanks for the video, I reviewed the video while changing my 08's.
I found the factory unit in great shape but no tension left on the spring.
Stupid Flanders: I bet there's someone who'll find this useful.
Shany G: @rebelyell91 no kidding! Do it, and earn extra money you'd be surprised how
many people need such stuff. Each DVD set talks about a specific bike!
rebelyell91: @BlackMesaSecurity they "improved" the lever in the 2008+ models, but the
extension spring doesn't do much - still prone to break apart. :(
jhhwingnut: Great helpful video.....I have a question though....why couldn't you use
the old rotor bolt as the rotor "puller" by simply putting a spacer inside
and reinstalling the old rotor bolt and torqing until the rotor breaks
free.....that should work without buying that puller....right...??
rebelyell91: @cashstore1 Glen that's very helpful. I should definitely do that soon
since I'm carrying a lot of weight on the subframe. - they are not my tools
but I (kinda) know the guy that I borrowed them from :P
Twistedkeys: @ookingdomstaroo try a full restoration when you're 16 :P thanks for the
phlemdog: I'm guessing a cheater bar wouldn't have helped on some of those bolts.
ZMagic97: Good job man. You should be proud.
rebelyell91: @yurkia360 never thought of that! that's awesome
rebelyell91: @ZMagic97 thanks mate, I learned a lot (especially about gaskets haha)
ookingdomstaroo: @Carpythesharky I was just thinking that... at 6:37 into the video... hahah.
rebelyell91: @TheRedline65 so far I'm servicing the KLR myself - I'm learning A LOT. The
Ninja 250 taught me basic maintenance - the KLR is teaching me more
advanced stuff. :)
rebelyell91: @cardboardreindeer gotta have it clean before this surgery :P
Jason Giddens: OK The KLR650 is not an option Honda all all the way!
speedemon103: Nice, I love doing mechanical work like that, I have trouble with those
really tight bolts too, cause I'm just a little scrony thing lol I always
have to get something to put on my wrench to get more leverage, anyways
rebelyell91: @MCTeck wow I'm sorry to hear that but I"m glad he did not crash.
tvk331: love your videos! im a 17 year old from new jersey, i am trying to convince
my parents to let me get a bike, its so hard! my parents threatened to
throw me out if i come home with one! ugh!
rebelyell91: @Itsreload haha toss them in that oil sump I showed you :P
boxwoodgreen: What is the rotor nut size, and where would one get the rotor wrench ? I've
never seen one before.
Itsreload: What do I do with the extra bolts? Yeah replace the gasket no matter what!
NOSQUIDDING.com: great editing, and comical voice-over dude. this is the type of thing that
people hope they find when they are looking for a tutorial vid!
BlackMesaSecurity: Why in the hell have Kawasaki not fixed this. I know this has been a
problem for years. They have to know about it.
rebelyell91: @tvk331 wow they are pretty serious - good luck
Ben Moorhouse: I love heavy duty bike work :)
KodiakRS: Nice video, not your usual maintenance video.
rebelyell91: @Thomazz46 you are welcome to unsubscribe? but it's your call of course
Carpythesharky: YES THE DOOHICKEY UPGRADE! theres no doohickey like this doohickey!
rebelyell91: @DJCipster4BREAKS haha thanks Cip - I'll get it later I'm sure :P
Chimenko89: @rebelyell91 Wanna give us a sneak peak of the trip? =D
Thomazz46: I don't know, but I just don't enjoy your vids anymore since you bought the
rebelyell91: @ookingdomstaroo This was definitely a major surgery - I learned a lot!
MyScatman1: hi why hasent any of you filed a complaint to kawasaki or to a small claims
court i believe this as caused engine trouble on behalf of there poor
quality parts and engineering if that was mine i would of rode it in to
kawasaki and told them of the problem and if they dident fix it i would
report to the nearest mcn paper and bring it to light that there is a
problem with this bike and they wont fix it i would then never buy another
kawasaki i bet they would call them back if they got bad press
file83: Dude, why did you do a jump cut at 5:13? You go from cranking on the puller
bolt in one shot to it magically disappearing in the next shot. WHAT DID
YOU DO? I noticed that the other doohickey upgrade video does the same
mysterious jump cut. I appreciate your video, but why on earth would you
just skip over this important part? I mean, you show yourself in the video
taking out the exterior bolts, which everyone knows how to do, but then
skip over the final in a series a steps. WHY?
TheRedline65: You know what you're doing lol, i would't have a clue where to even start
taking my bike appart like that. must be a good thing to know. do you
service the klr yourself?
cardboardreindeer: great vid, WOW that thing is clean. good job
rebelyell91: @havedogwillscooter haha, THIS is what I was doing :P
ookingdomstaroo: OMG... this is way too much... And I'm only afraid of changing the oil on
my bike.. hahahah.
yurkia360: @rebelyell91 old doohickey makes a nice keychain fob....
dwnrety1: @Thomazz46 hm. i havent watched any of his newer videos either.. probably
because i got a car and forgot all about wanting a motorcycle.. lol *i
still want one though just for the heck of it...
rebelyell91: @ecookman lol very good call
Chris A: I like to think I'm mechanically inclined, but there's probably zero chance
I'll replace mine myself. Looks like a lot of stuff that could go terribly
cash storeone: @rebelyell91 I don't want to by the tools. Maybe I can find something
around here, as I know a couple of KLR people.
cash storeone: @rebelyell91 Yeah, that is how you got to do it. Everyone is not Mechanical
til you go in and do it. That is how you learn.
rebelyell91: @wizzra haha yeah? that'd be a nice job (:
rebelyell91: @Chimenko89 wayyyyyy busy with school and work, I really wish I could find
the time to shoot video more, but I do have an exciting trip coming up. (:
Part 2 will be up hopefully tomorrow thanks
rebelyell91: @navythomas8 I have not done the themo-bob yet. I sorta didn't really have
the need for it (since I've been riding in 100 F heat all the time) but I
may look into it
rebelyell91: great to hear this man. :) glad this video helped.
