Kawasaki Klx 650 Dual Purpose Liquid Cooled Gas Saving Thumper....fun Bike!! on 2040motos
Kawasaki KLX description
1996 Kawasaki KLX 650 Dual Purpose, Liquid Cooled, 4Stroke, Single Cyl Thumper. This is a KLX not a KLR, this a factory dual purpose version of KLX dirt bike. The KLX has more power than KLR!!
I bought this bike from original owner, who purchased it in CA. The bike had 3800 miles when I bought it and now has 10,634 miles. This is a great bike which is practical and fun. This bike is currently licensed and is ready to hit the road.
Since I bought the bike I have replaced/installed:
Choke Valve, Chain, Brakes, Fork Seals, Battery, Tires, Grips and Dyno Jet Carb Kit. I also had bike dyno tuned when carb kit was installed, it dynoed 51 hp!! I bought the bike for short commutes to save on gas expense. Lately, I have been riding it to school, which is 54 miles 1 way. It will cruise easliy at 65-70mph with plenty extra for passing.(It will hit 85-90 quick!)
It averages about 49mpg with my best being 56mpg. Front Tire is 80% and Rear is 35%. The seat has a small piece of cover loose and the original owner did not like the factory seat color, so he painted it black...this is coming off and origianal color is noticable. There are cosmetic scratches and fading but bike is solid and dependable.
It seeps a few drops of oil from drain plug. Maybe a 1inch spot over a week.... I just like to disclose all details, because I dont like to find things out after the sale either.
But overall a great dependable bike, which is practical, powerful, usable and affordable.
Im selling it because my GF is concerned for my safety...over gas savings. My loss your gain.

Based solely on recent history, you’d think the engineers at Kawasaki are strong believers of the “bigger is better” philosphy. You need only look at the Ninja ZX-6R which shook off the shackles of the 600cc supersport segment with a 636cc displacement, then came the Ninja 300 replacing the 250. New spy photos from Indonesia, however suggest there’s still room for smaller engines from Team Green.Fri, 15 Feb 2013
You may remember last fall’s release of the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R was accompanied by a mind-blowing short video commercial of a rider screaming around the 37.33-mile Isle of Man TT course aboard the new 636 Ninja. Now, Team Green has just released a “Making Of” video about the production of that video, featuring TT star James Hillier. This behind-the-scenes short film shows the crew capturing Hillier as he passes within millimeters of the camera. You’ll see the camera-equipped pursuit bike racing side-by-side with Hillier, as well as the aerial heli-cam.Tue, 21 Feb 2012
Defending champion Ryan Villopoto won his third consecutive AMA Supercross race in Arlington, Texas, but the victory was overshadowed by a season-ending injury suffered by one of his main challengers Chad Reed. TwoTwo Motorsport Honda‘s Reed trailed Villopoto in second place for the first six laps at Cowboys Stadium. Disaster struck on Lap 7 however as Reed crashed hard in the whoops.
