I recently got an '05 Kawasaki KLR650 and one of the reasons I bought it was because of the glowing review in Popular Mechanics. The article stated that "one could cruise at 80 mph comfortablely." At speeds between 65-80 the bike starts wobbling and it gets pretty hairy. Does anybody have a 650 that has done this? I appreciate any insight into the problem. The dealer says nothing is wrong. The tires are inflated properly and I have inspected them for any deformity. It feels like a tire problem but I don't know. Its got Dunlop K750 tires on it.
I had a 2001 KLR650 for 4 months and rode it to work daily @ about 110kph I never noticed any wobble. Even took it for a 5 hour ride on the hwy @ 120kph and never had that happen. Check to make sure all your spokes are nice and tight too.
